C89.5 is part of the ecosystem that supports artists who make the music you love and we partner with local venues to support a vibrant local dance music scene.
Live music venues play a huge role in the music industry, generally providing artists their primary source of income. But here in Washington State, no live performances have occurred in over 210 days, hurting artists and pushing independent venues to the brink of financial collapse and permanent closure. The National Independent Venue Association has launched a major fundraising effort to save live music venues.
Separately, here in Washington, KeepMusicLiveWA is working to support local venues, providing grants to small-medium venues (less than 1000.)
C89.5 supports everyone who joins the effort to keep the dance music scene thriving in the PNW.
