Democracy Comes Alive
Democracy Comes Alive is a one-day virtual music festival promoting voter participation produced by Live for Live Music in partnership with HeadCount.
The election this November may be the most important of our lifetime, and Democracy Comes Alive aims to channel music's power to make a critical impact on voter participation this year and promote awareness of Americans’ inalienable right to cast their vote. The event is the latest in a virtual series from the creators of Quarantine Comes Alive, and Justice Comes Alive, which garnered over 200,000 viewers each and raised a combined $230,000 for various COVID-19 relief and social justice organizations.
In addition to the musical lineup, nonpartisan discussions between sets will focus on voting rights history and examine what it took for everyone—from the original founding fathers to women to people of color, and more—to gain the Constitutionally guaranteed right to vote. Democracy Comes Alive will also provide tips and information regarding best voting practices and the most effective ways to research representatives at a national, state, and local level.
Democracy Comes Alive will take place on Saturday, October 3rd, at 1:00 PM ET and be hosted by Ari Fink of SiriusXM. Check your voter registration or donate at democracycomesalive.com to receive an email with the links to watch on the show's day. Your donation will benefit HeadCount as well as participating artists, and donations over $9.99 are tax-deductible.
