Deadmau5 to host cat festival


We had to double check the date on this story to make sure it wasn’t April 1, but it seems pretty legit.

Friday April 17 will see deadmau5 play one of his weirdest gigs to date… A cat festival.

Just For Cats is hosted by the Canadian Federation Of Humane Societies and Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) at the Bell Lightbox in deadmau5’s home city.

The event promises itself to be a celebration of all things feline with all proceeds going to the Humane Society. Attendants will be able to take part in a ‘red carpet adopt-athon’ before the event culminates in a montage of the best cat videos in existence.

“Just for Cats offers audiences a unique and fun opportunity to join fellow cat lovers in LOLing, crying, and aww-ing their way through old and new favourites. Special guest deadmau5 in attendance!” – TIFF

TIFF also state that no cats will be present inside the cinema. Naturally.

A heavily documented cat enthusiast, deadmau5’s attendance and role at the event has spurred heaps of attention for the event and will hopefully help raise a substantial amount of money for all Canadian cats in need. He’s confirmed his appearance on Twitter stating it “seemed like the right thing to do.” Props.

Here’s a few videos of deadmau5 and his famous feline chum Meowington. Read the full story.
