On Wednesday, Dec. 21, at Union Nightclub, charity event L.A. Gives Back took over five separate stages, each dedicated to a different style of music and featuring many of the city's best DJs, including special surprise headliner Diplo. Each room was hosted by some of the city's hottest party promoters, including IHEARTCOMIX, Brownies & Lemonade, Ham on Everything, Space Yacht, Emo Nite L.A., Late Night Laggers, Free Grilled Cheese and Restless Nites. Whether you were looking to rage the night away to hip-hop, trap and EDM, sing out loud to some emo classics, or chill out to some deep house, there was a room for you. All the proceeds went to help L.A.'s homeless, making it a win for everyone involved.
