Mercy for Animals and Spaceland Presents are pleased to announce the 2nd annual Circle V, taking place on Saturday, November 18th at The Regent Theater in Downtown LA. Circle V will feature a diverse lineup of genres with performances by Raury, Reggie Watts, DREAMCAR, Waka Flocka Flame — and, returning to the stage for the second time, Moby.
Co-founded by longtime vegan activists Moby and Tony Kanal (DREAMCAR / No Doubt),“We established Circle V to celebrate the undeniably positive impact Veganism has on our planet and every being on it. Circle V aims to educate about the plight that animals undergo for food, clothing, experimentation, and entertainment. Through music, we hope we can create change, said Kanal, I’m excited to help launch our second Circle V, as well as to play on stage with my new band DREAMCAR.” “Creating a future wherein animals are allowed to live their lives in peace and according to their own wills is my life’s work, said Moby, a future that involves free and independent animals also involves a 45% reduction in climate change gases, 90% reduction in rainforest deforestation, 75% reduction in antibiotic resistance, and at least a 50% reduction in diabetes, obesity, heart disease,and most cancers. So not only are animal rights good for animals, they’re good for humans, too.”
Circle V, will feature discussion panels with renowned keynote speakers and expert chefs, live music and DJ’s alongside vegan food and drink vendors and an exclusively vegan beer garden for those who are 21 +. Proceeds from the event will benefit Mercy For Animals to support their work in ending animal exploitation.
