Through its nationally-known festivals, Life is good has raised over $3 million for children in need since 2003. All public donations, including individual fundraising prior to the event, will be directed to the foundation. The Life is good Kids Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit committed to helping children overcome life-threatening challenges such as violence, illness, natural disaster and extreme poverty. Its Playmakers initiative provides training, resources and support to the adults dedicated to caring for these children so that all involved lead healthier, more joyful lives.

Superfly Presents was founded in New Orleans in 1996 by Jonathan Mayers, Rick Farman, Richard Goodstone and Kerry Black. Originally set up to become the leading independent local concert promoter, they created the Superfly During JazzFest series, which is now in its 14th year. In 2002, they co-founded and continue to produce the iconic Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Since its inception in 2002, Bonnaroo swiftly earned its status as the country’s premier music and arts event and Rolling Stone called the festival “one of the 50 moments to change the history of rock and roll.” Bonnaroo has featured a staggeringly diverse range of world-class acts such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Metallica, Neil Young, Radiohead, Jay-Z, Willie Nelson, The Police, Snoop Dogg, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, The Dave Matthews Band, James Brown, The White Stripes, Erykah Badu and The Dead, among so many others. Bonnaroo has also made a large impact on the comedy industry, featuring some of today’s best comedians working today, including Chris Rock, Lewis Black, David Cross, Aziz Ansari, Conan O’Brien, Zach Galifianakis and so many more. In 2008, Superfly co-founded the acclaimed San Francisco-based Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival. The company is also involved in artist management and has created the Superfly Marketing Group, a boutique entertainment-marketing agency designed to complement Superfly’s diverse divisions. Superfly Marketing Group leverages the company’s experience, expertise and industry relationships to develop brand partnerships geared towards the passionate entertainment and lifestyle consumer.
