Bassnectar has always had a politically charged message alongside his music, and has also been a prominent philanthropic figure in the dance community. We’re happy to see (and not surprised) that he’s using his massive platform to continue to take action during the biggest civil rights movement in recent time.
Today, Bassnectar has announced that he will be donating $100,000 in support of the Black Lives Matter protests. The donations will be spread over five different organizations: Black Lives Matter, Color Of Change, Campaign Zero, NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and MediaJustice.
We tip our hat to Bassnectar, and to all of the artists who are using their voice during a time when it is needed the most.
