WHY DONATE TO CIVL?
Mega-corporations like Live Nation create vertical monopolies within a market, and when this happens, they own the venues, control the festivals, manage the artists and decide where they perform. Because of this, they are able to withstand major losses while driving out the competition.
This not only hurts the independent venues of CIVL, but means that music lovers like you will face higher ticket prices to see only Live Nation-approved acts This is what all of us are facing in Lincoln Yards.
Let us instead preserve, protect, and build upon Chicago’s musical legacy. Please help us in this important effort.
