Be Interactive - Nashville - 2019

Be Interactive
July 13th, 2019
Municipal Auditorium
Nashville, TN


With both nights of Bass Center selling out faster than you can say “whatthefuckthesefolksreallylovebass” we decided to huck together a night of music in celebration of our non profit project “Be Interactive” – dedicated to promoting engagement and community activism to raise awareness about important issues and hopefully rally each other to make a difference (:

As you prepare thyselves to devour the details of this upcoming throwdown, we’d like to share some quick highlights from Be Interactive’s first 7 months of existence:

> Distributed $35,000 in grant money to projects completed by Ambassadors, members of the Bassnectar Community, and beyond
> Collected 2500 meals for a local food bank and 3000 items of winter clothing for those in need during our NYE360 event to close out 2018
> Organized a cleanup that picked up 560 lbs of trash from a beach in a world heritage site, collected 94 backpacks and hundreds of school supplies, raised $18,000 for music education, and offset the carbon emissions from all flights for our first overseas special event in Mexico: Deja Voom
> Fostered partnerships with organizations like HeadCount, To Write Love On Her Arms, Conscious Alliance, and many more to help activate the community at shows and online.
> Click here to check out more of the efforts and accomplishments from Be Interactive!

In the fall of 2018, we launched the nonprofit into life through a special one-night event in San Francisco accompanied by our friends, artists, and activists alike! This July we’re going to do it again, but taking it up a notch in a place we are long overdue to return: NASHVILLE!

Even more ways to get involved and Be Interactive!

A quick reminder to follow: @BeInteractiveHQ on Twitter, @BeInteractiveHQ Instagram,, and visit the website beinteractivehq.orgto learn more about the nonprofit and its mission.

Although we have many diverse approaches to encouraging engagement, one of the most direct ways to get involved is with our Creative Project Grants!

We collect submissions from community members about various creative campaigns they would like to launch, almost like a kick starter dedicated to acts of giving & charity. It will be a contest of sorts, in that the finalist(s) selected will be granted financial support to carry out their campaign, and interactive support & participation from our organization. While these contests will launch later in the year, you can get involved now to learn more and get a head start dreaming up your ideas.
