Disco Donnie Presents Partners With Headcount on R.A.V.E (Register And Vote Everywhere)

In continuation of its efforts to get music fans to get out and vote, Disco Donnie Presents (DDP), the award-winning and recognized leader in electronic dance music event production is partnering with HeadCount to present R.A.V.E. (Register and Vote Everywhere). The DDP initiative is the latest undertaking by the organization which has consistently been dedicated to giving back to the community it serves. The initiative will launch online and will also feature on-site activations at DDP festivals, beginning at this year's Ubbi Dubbi Festival taking place at Globe Life Park in Dallas/Fort Worth on April 18-19.

R.A.V.E. is the most recent campaign by Disco Donnie Presents which has previously launched politically-minded initiatives such as Make America Rave Again, and Disco Donnie For President / which included a voter registration component. "Many people have become divided and embittered in the current political environment and process. I see people arguing online over a variety of issues, which is their right, but there's more people can do than being a keyboard warrior. We want to encourage and inspire people to register to vote and participate in our democracy."- Disco Donnie

The year-long campaign for R.A.V.E. will encourage music fans to register and vote in all elections nationwide. The campaign will feature 10-second videos from artists as well as meet and greets at festivals. A social media campaign will also be part of the program leading up to the Iowa caucuses.

The DDP and HeadCount partnership was created to get fans excited for the 2020 election and make sure their voices are heard in November. HeadCount volunteers will be on the ground to encourage festival attendees to register to vote and make sure they stay informed about election milestones throughout the year.
