Wilco, Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule, The String Cheese Incident and More Offer Once-In-A-Lifetime Experiences for HeadCount

Wilco, Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule and The String Cheese Incident are among the acts who are auctioning off special “one-in-a-lifetime” experiences to support non-profit organization HeadCount. Those experiences include VIP tickets, autographed merchandise and even “quality time” with the band.

Special experience packages are available via online auctions here.. HeadCount will also host a private event with Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and Grace Potter at Bridgeport, CT’s Gathering of the Vibes festival this summer. In addition, festivals like Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, High Sierra, Camp Bisco and All Good are pitching in to helpHeadCount’s fundraising efforts on multiple fronts.

Other items up for auction include tickets to Hunter, NY’s Mountain Jam bundled with a limited edition poster signed by all the members of Widespread Panic and Gov’t Mule, a private golf cart ride with String Cheese Incident’s Michael Kang at Electric Forest, passes to Dave Matthews Band shows, side-stage access for Wilco’s Bonnaroo set and an autographed 7’ vinyl of Wilco’s single “I Might.”

For the sixth-straight year, Camp Bisco’s promoters are also donating 50 cents from the sale of every ticket to help HeadCount.

HeadCount registered over 100,000 voters last year and will visit more than a dozen festivals in 2013. At each festival, HeadCount volunteers will register voters and help fans “SoundOff” at Congress by tweeting photo messages at elected officials.

Come on guys. Love the site, but stop trying to ‘over’ promote things. once in a lifetime to get tickets to a dmb concert? the band runs their own auctions for the last ten year. just seems to be so much fluff lately

Come on jim… every year there are new kids showing up at shows… to them it’s not fluff, and some encouragement to vote is a great thing… I hate politics in my music, but I wholeheartedly support the efforts to get people to vote… even if it means the risk of winning a pair of DMB tix %^)

Seems like a good idea and not just fluff. The old saying, don’t like, don’t play, allow others to do so, if they wish.

Is there a package you can purchase that makes the Dave Matthews Band stop coming to your city every summer?
