    Billabong's fifth annual Design For Humanity benefit (www.designforhumanity.com) will be held on Wednesday, June 15th, 2010. Billabong is excited to return to the legendary "NY Street" backlot of Paramount Studios in Hollywood. This massive fashion-music-art block party will feature two concert stages, DJ dance parties, a runway fashion show showcasing one of a kind Billabong bikinis, food trucks, art installation, a VIP street and much more.

    Legendary indie band Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros will be headlining this year's event for an unforgettable festival of musicianship and performance. In addition, coming off a huge tour with Florence + the Machine and massive success at SXSW, Hanni El Khatibwill be performing with his sinewy guitar and wry, whiskey-glazed voice. Los Angeles based duo LA Riots will also be showcasing their bawdy blend of Indie electro along with their infamous pop and rock remixes. Opening the night will be disco house band from New York, The Hundred in the Hands. Their music is an avant-pop split between the austere and feverish. DJ's Tina T, Mike Relm and Mark Moreno will be providing jams throughout out the night.

    100% of this year's ticket sales and proceeds from art show and product collaboration auction sales are being donated to The VH1 Save the Music Foundation (vh1savethemusic.com), a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child's complete education. To date, the Foundation has provided more than $47 million in new musical instruments to 1,750 public schools in more than 100 cities around the country, impacting the lives of over 1.6 million children.
