In 2013, HeadCount launched four separate projects that leveraged organizing know-how and music savvy.
2012 marked the launch of National Voter Registration Day, and HeadCount’s signature “Clipboard ” campaign on social media.
2011 saw HeadCount launch two projects that focused on giving voice to the music community. But the two most important developments were the additions of two people.
In 2010, HeadCount installed solar panels on the roof of a school with The Disco Biscuits, released an 18-track “Best of Bonnaroo” compilation, produced a television commercial with Jay-Z, and had Bob Weir personally call hundreds of fans before the midterm elections.
If HeadCount was going to become a sustainable organization that it is today, branching beyond voter registration was essential. It wasn’t just about keeping busy or attracting funding. It was a question that got down to HeadCount’s reason for existence.
2008 was big year in electoral politics, but was an even bigger year for HeadCount.
In 2007, HeadCount got its proverbial $&%#@ together, with big assists from guys like Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes and Bob Weir.
“You can’t let something this magical die.”
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, and HeadCount found a new way to help organize the music community.
On February 13th, 2004, HeadCount officially launched at a small concert in Denver, CO. Ten years later, we’ve registered 300,000 voters and championed dozens of ways for the music community to make its voice heard.
