• The Dollar Per Bass Head project is a way for us to give back to our community and the causes that matter to us. We collect $1 from every Bassnectar ticket sale to donate to organizations that are doing great things in the world in support of health, liberty, compassion, and equality.

    Beyond raising this money, you also help us distribute it by voting for the charity closest to your heart: please take some time to learn about each organization before placing your vote. The org with the most support will receive $20k, the 2nd will get $10k, and the remaining three will receive $5k each.

    This would not be possible without your hard-earned dollars, and we are happy to make these donations with you as a team. We are constantly inspired by the love and energy in our community, and we make these contributions in your name and in that same spirit.
