TOUR 2023

DMB and REVERB are partnering on the 2023 tour to increase action on the climate crisis, reduce the environmental footprint of touring, and plant 1,000,000 trees

Since 2005, Dave Matthews Band and REVERB have partnered to make the band’s tours more sustainable and empower fans to take action for people and the planet at shows! Together as a community, we’ve created massive positive impacts:

  • $2.8+ Million Raised by fans to support environmental and social causes
  • 816,000+ Fan Actions in the BamaGreen Eco-Village
  • 569,000+ Single-Use Water Bottles eliminated at shows
  • 63,000+ Tons of Greenhouse Gas Pollution Neutralized

DMB is also continuing its commitment to plant 1 MILLION more trees in addition to the 3 million trees the band has helped plant in partnership with The Nature Conservancy.

Join us in BamaGreen Eco-Village to build on this incredible legacy of positive impact!

The Road to Zero-Waste

Dave Matthews Band, their management team at Red Light, and REVERB are teaming up with venue partners including Oak View Group to lead the way toward zero-waste concerts. Efforts include:

  • Reducing or eliminating single-use plastic
  • Offering compost collection for fans and backstage
  • Transitioning to multi-use or plastic alternative recyclable or compostable materials

While select shows will be zero-waste, each venue on the fall tour is taking measures to reduce or eliminate non-recyclable and non-compostable items. Together, we’re working to develop solutions that can limit landfill waste throughout live music.

Waste Reduction
  • No single-use plastic water bottles or cups backstage!
  • Reusable water bottles and insulated mugs for artists and crew
  • Reusable or compostable service ware in catering and on buses
  • Water refill stations throughout backstage area, catering, and on tour buses
Waste Diversion
  • Recycling: Backstage, in offices and catering, and on tour buses
  • Battery Reclamation and Recycling: Collecting dead batteries for recycling and donating batteries with remaining power to people in need
  • Toiletry Donations: Collecting unused toiletries from hotel stays and donating to local food security organizations
Additional Steps
  • Farm-to-Stage: Local farm resources and food for catering
  • Green Cleaning Products for backstage, offices, catering, and tour buses
Addressing Carbon Emissions

In addition to the above efforts to reduce the tour’s environmental footprint, remaining greenhouse gas emissions are measured and neutralized through vetted climate projects

  • Calculate tour carbon emissions from travel and transportation, hotel stays, venue energy usage, fan travel, and more
  • REVERB Climate Portfolio: Dave Matthews Band is committed to addressing tour emissions through support of REVERB’s Climate Portfolio. The portfolio funds verified greenhouse gas pollution reduction projects and climate justice efforts to neutralize carbon emissions and strengthen historically marginalized communities facing the worst impacts of the climate crisis.


DMB is taking climate action on tour as a partner of Music Climate Revolution. In addition to taking steps with REVERB to reduce the environmental footprint of touring, the band has committed to calculating and addressing tour emissions not mitigated through other means.

Major sources of tour emissions including band and crew travel, hotel stays, gear transport, venue energy use, fan travel, and more, are calculated at the conclusion of the tour. In acknowledgement of those emissions, the band supports innovative third-party verified climate projects that measurably prevent, sequester, or reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
