PxP Key Assumption
’Music is the weapon of the future’ – Fela Kuti
In 2016 over 65 million people were displaced from their homes worldwide. Among them 21 million were under 18. (UNHCR Global Report 2016). Children suffer the most under the circumstances and consequences of fleeing.
On June 05, 2016 the PxP Festival premiered at the WALDBUEHNE in Berlin (GER) selling out the venues' 22.000 seats within 3 weeks of time, raising 400.000,- € in donations for displaced children & children in warzones.
P × P is a universally valid formula for peace ( PEACE × PEACE = PEACE ) and is thus both a request and a problem-solving approach for humanity . It also represents the multiplication factor „POP“ in the sense that popular artists help build a humanitarian bridge between a politically unpopular issue and the increasing number of concerned global citizens.
Our goal is to generate a maximum of awareness for our globally unifying message ’PEACE x PEACE’ using the reach, popularity & access of artists and music.
