Heal the Music Day

Music Health Alliance’s annual Heal the Music Day is on October 18, 2024.

The countdown is on!

What is Heal the Music Day?

Heal the Music Day is an effort to raise awareness and support for those making a living in the music industry — 76% of whom are self-employed or part of a small business with no access to group health benefits. This includes artists, songwriters, producers, audio engineers, musicians, publishers, and more.

How Can You Participate?

This is the best part — you don’t have to add a show or do anything you’re not already doing. Join the collective of artists, songwriters, and music businesses who have pledged to give this year. Pledges can be as simple a a percentage of a show, event, creative work, OR a single donation made on or around Heal the Music Day, Friday, October 18, 2024. Your commitment ensures that no one in the music industry must go without doctors, medicine, or treatment again. Every $1 donation = $30 in critical life-saving healthcare resources. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of music makers everywhere!

Who Benefits from Your Support?

Our programs and services are available at no cost to anyone who has worked in the music industry for three or more years. Spouses, legal domestic partners, and dependent family members may also be eligible.

What They’re Saying

“In the world of the working musician, good health is something most of us take for granted — that is, until something goes wrong. Your support of Heal the Music Day helps ensure that no one in the music community must ever choose between food and medicine again.”

Rodney Crowell, Recording Artist, Songwriter

“In this nation too many people are underinsured, uninsured, or have no idea how to navigate healthcare access. People who work in the music industry — especially those in bands or in road crews — know this well. Music Health Alliance fills this need for healthcare access to the people who work hard to make the music you love.”

— Chris Carrabba, Dashboard Confessional

“The work that Music Health Alliance is doing on behalf of the music community is incredible. They are on the front line advocating for people like my band members, our crew, team members, and all of our families.”

Dierks Bentley, UMG Recording Artist
