Bassnectar - Dollar Per Bass Head 2014Thanks to everyone who took part in Dollar Per Bass Head 2014!

That’s each and every one of you that purchased a Bassnectar ticket in the last year, and everyone who voted to help decide how we would distribute $75k of the funds raised.

Headcount came out on top in the vote and will receive a $25k donation to help them promote democracy all over the country through the power of music. All four of the other amazing organizations involved get a slice too!

If you haven’t done so already we urge you to learn more about the orgs and where your money is going – check out links along with the results in full, below.

Money from Dollar Per Bass Head also went towards bringing free earplugs to our shows and festival appearances to protect your precious ears! And we are also donating the funds raised from our Day Of The Dead show in Detroit to The Compassion & Choices Brittany Maynard Fund.

Stay tuned for more news on $/BH initiatives and see you again next year! πŸ™‚

>> Headcount – – $25k
>> National Alliance on Mental Illness – – $20k
>> Khan Academy – – $15k
>> Center for Media Justice – – $5k
>> Center for Rights – – $10k

    Lorin, you are an amazing artist and an even better person.. And I don’t even know you.. Keep doing what you do best, whatever the fuck you want. I’m glad I’ve gotten to experience your shows in numerous settings and can’t wait until you come back to my home town in Baton Rouge, La and tear up that river center again… Much love brother
