Join Dispatch, The Disco Biscuits and Members of the Grateful Dead At our Gathering of the Vibes Fundraiser

For five years now, Gathering of the Vibes has hosted an annual backstage fundraiser for HeadCount.

At each event, our VIP guests get:

  • to meet their favorite artist
  • get something signed
  • take a photo with them
  • enjoy dinner in artist catering
  • watch the feature'd band's set from "the pit," in front of the stage.

It's something we look forward to all year. Check out the photos from 2011 (Bob Weir) and last year (Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and Grace Potter).

Well this year we're happy to announce that we'll be doing not one but two separate VIP events. One, on Saturday Aug 2nd,  will feature  original Grateful Dead members Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart along with The Disco Biscuits (whose bass player is our founder and co-chair Marc Brownstein). The Biscuits, Billy and Mickey will also do a private Q&A session with our guests.

The second reception will happen with Dispatch on Sunday August 3rd. Dispatch is one of the most socially-conscious acts on the HeadCount roster and we're thrilled to have them be part of this.

Tickets to each event are $500 for a single day or $750 for the weekend, and also include all the benefits of being a VIP ticket holder. For tickets to either event, click here.

When you consider that regular VIP tix at some festivals cost more than that, it's really a no-brainer. Plus, because you're supporting HeadCount a portion of the tix are tax-deductible.


And huge gratitude to The Disco Biscuits, Dispatch, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and especially our board member Ken Hays and everyone at Gathering of the Vibes. It's people like you who kept us going the last 10 years and will keep us strong for another decade!
