Bassnectar has always been one of the first producers in our community to stand up for the greater good. Now in light of mass unemployment brought on by the coronavirus outbreak, he’s opted to donate all of his net proceeds to pandemic relief.
All of this information is coming live and direct from Bassnectar’s Instagram on Thursday, April 9.
“Since last Thanksgiving through this present fundraiser initiative, we will direct 100% net Bassnectar proceeds to our favorite charities, as well as to support our year-round employees and tour production staff”
Bassnectar also detailed how he found a way to pay his touring production staff. Without live concerts, the income his crew planned to use on bills and payments is non-existent. That being so, he’s decided to direct all the profits that he makes from songs, merchandise, and more to continue paying his crew.
Bassnectar’s decision to donate all of his profits to his crew could be in response to the peak of the online concert live stream. We love the idea behind live streams… With live streams we work to keep people inside, happy, and active. Bassnectar took this idea to the next level and found a way to directly support his unemployed team members.
“We’re all one big family, in this together.”
