On the occasion of March 21st, "The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination”, the Berlin-based FAIRPLANET.org platform teamed up with Tel Aviv-based SUAN.fm (Stayed Up All Night) to create the world’s longest crowdsourced mixtape.
Last week, on March 31st, the global joint initiative came to end: An amazing 602 participants from 42 different countries shared a total of 530 songs onto one single digital mixtape, in a worldwide, symbolic and musical stand against racism and discrimination.
“On behalf of fairplanet I would like to thank everyone who participated from the bottom of my heart. I am truly touched that so many people from so many different countries decided to share a song and unite in sound against racism and discrimination.” – Murat Suner, Editor at Large, fairplanet.org
“We at suan.fm are extremely proud of this achievement and grateful to all the people from all over the world, who decided to raise a voice and join in this universal statement against racism and discrimination, by simply sharing a song. After all, we truly believe in the sincere message a personal mixtape can send.” – Eyal Datz, Co-Founder, suan.fm
Music is after all the universal language of mankind, creating bonds between all people on our planet. We hope you will enjoy the mixtape!

Stayed up all night is a community project based on the premise that there are endless ways of creating mixtapes online, but we still miss the feeling of sending someone a personal mixtape. You can decorate a personal tape, build your playlist and share. That's it. No ads, no likes, no comments - as personal as it gets.
The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, is announced annually on March 21st. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid pass laws. Proclaiming the day in 1966, the United Nations General Assembly called on the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination.
