Walther Productions and the All Good Music Festival are proud to become the largest event to pledge support to HeadCount by donating $.50 from every ticket sold to support the organization’s “Cents for Sense” campaign. The partnership serves to introduce this new campaign set to be a significant industry-wide program to fund HeadCount’s voter registration efforts at over 1,000 concerts and festivals nationwide before the 2008 election.
HeadCount (www.headcount.org) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that registers voters at live music shows, educates citizens on the importance of voting and helps train the activists of tomorrow. Since its 2004 inception, the organization has registered over 60,000 voters, more than any other volunteer-run organization in the United States. The All Good Music Festival is delighted to do its part in supporting HeadCount reaching its goal to register 200,000 new voters in 2008; and Walther Productions encourages other festivals, artists and music industry organizations to do the same.
The All Good Music Festival also includes performances from artists affiliated with HeadCount, including Phil Lesh & Friends, Gov’t Mule, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Keller Williams & the WMD’S, Derek Trucks, Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Tea Leaf Green. Additional artists confirmed at this year’s All Good Festival include Widespread Panic, Railroad Earth, The Bridge, Hot Buttered Rum, RAQ, Bonerama, Pnuma Trio, The Wood Brothers, Bassnectar, Outformation, Telepath, deSol, Basshound and many more still to be announced.
