House Not House Presents Come Together for Palestine

On Sat 25th May, House Not House (HNH) are back on Arena’s rooftop with an evening of music, food, community and resistance with Come Together for Palestine — a non-profit fundraiser for Palestinian families in need. Expect delicious, home-cooked Palestinian cuisine from Aida Makes and a top-tier lineup of Tokyo’s finest selectas, including heavyweight headliners Mar89 and Mitokon volunteering their beats. Drawing strength from the radical history of house and rave culture, HNH believes that bringing people together on the dance floor can make the world a better place. This is an event where you can let loose, dance to great music and enjoy some banging food; hopefully, you’ll be able to forge meaningful connections that energize and inspire you with a renewed passion to fight against injustice in Palestine and beyond. So bring your beautiful selves down to Arena, dance, eat, chat, connect and come together for Palestine.
