Mission Live Foundation organizes first underwater performance in the world to bring attention to the ocean’s Plastic Soup

Mission Live Foundation has launched a spectacular, new initiative to bring attention to the worldwide environmental problem of circulating ocean plastic. DJ and producer, Oliver Heldens will do a free dive that will then lead into a DJ performance at a depth of 40-meters underwater. This first ever underwater performance called, ‘Dance from the Deep’, will happen in tandem with the Amsterdam Dance Event and will be streamed in the Amsterdam Arena. There, thousands of attendees will be able to enjoy the unique performance.

With this show, Heldens will support Mission Live Ocean, an initiative that brings worldwide attention to Plastic Soup. Heldens is doing the free dive in an area of the ocean where the problem of plastic soup is clearly visible in order that the severity, the impact, and the environmental damage can be seen. In addition, he will be asking festival goers during his performance to donate in order to financially back the Plastic Soup Foundation and the World Nature Funds. ‘Dance from the Deep’ will be further supported by a multimedia campaign.

‘Mission Live Ocean’ is an initiative of the Mission Live Foundation. This charity has as its goal, via supporting actions and surprising multimedia campaigns, to bring attention to worldwide environmental issues. During the year, there are numerous activities and events organized as part of Mission Live Ocean.

The Plastic Soup Foundation is thankful for the cooperation with the Mission Live Foundation and looks forward to the impact of this unique event. Watch the Mission Live Ocean trailer:
