High Dive and Staff Disaster Relief Fundraiser

High Dive is a locally owned music venue and  Gainesville's Home for Live Music and Events for over 8 years, located in a historic building in the heart of downtown Gainesville.

Named in 2016 as one of the "100 Greatest American Music Venues" by renowned music blog Consequences of Sound , High Dive delivers a first class event experience day after day, including live music and comedy, alternative theater, food truck rallys, private rentals and so much more.  Some of the biggest bands that come to Gainesville play at High Dive, and we simultaneously offer a space for local artists to play and for non-profits to raise funds.

The State of FL has ordered all bars and nightclubs shut for the next 30 days and we are foreseeing a longer closure as most of our shows for the next few months have been cancelled due to recent events.  This will be a very difficult time for our business, our staff and their loved ones.

Our goal is to reopen as soon as it is safely possible.  However, we must be honest that this will not be possible without support from the community.  Our monthly bills are in the multiple 10’s of thousands and we have no way to make money without people in the building - alcohol and ticket sales are our only sources of revenue.  

Your  donation will be split 50/50 (after merch costs) between our awesome staff and a fund to pay unavoidable overhead during this forced closure.
