About Sub City


Over 2.5 million dollars raised

In 1999 we at Hopeless Records got the crazy idea that if we gave bands and their fans the opportunity to connect their talent and passion with causes that were important to them we could make a positive impact through music. Sub City is run by the Hopeless Records team and we look to incorporate a charity component into as much of what we do as possible. At Sub City, we don't believe many peoples' misconception that our new generation is just lazy and avoiding real life issues such as getting "real jobs"; we believe bands and their fans are out changing the world by taking action. With your continued participation in our various fundraisers, tours, grants, releases and other events we are able to illustrate how we can all make a difference together regardless of age, socioeconomic status, physical ability or any other factor.
