About this project
KDHX is building its new home in the heart of Grand Center, featuring new studios and a 125-seat live performance venue, The Stage at KDHX. Kickstarter funding will allow KDHX to build The Stage at KDHX, a unique listening experience for audiences and artists. In its first 18-months of operation, KDHX will bring to Saint Louis artists that mirror the kind of independent music that has played on KDHX for the past 25 years.
Broadcast programming on KDHX has been heralded for its quality and diversity and we will now be able to present your favorite performers - both established and up-and-coming - in an intimate listening room experience. The Stage will welcome talented artists from an eclectic array of genres as programming on 88.1 KDHX currently does with a consistent theme of great music.
For over 25 years, KDHX has served as a community voice for independent music, non-profits and arts organizations, and street-level arts and culture. The Stage at KDHX will serve as a beacon of artistic independence in the heart of the country just steps from the Fox Theatre, Jazz St. Louis, The Sheldon Concert Hall, and the Saint Louis Symphony.
The Stage at KDHX will present your favorite established and up-and-coming independent artists in an intimate, 125-seat listening room experience. It's a chance to experience live music with a group that has been bringing you the best in live, DJ-driven radio for over 25 years. The Stage at KDHX will be a space for us to create innovative programming, just as we've done on-air for the past quarter-century. We'll host concerts to showcase amazing musical talent in ways that you won't be able to find anywhere else.
So, now's your chance to get involved and get some awesome The Stage at KDHX swag and/or experiences, too! Seriously, look at these the premiums. You need one of everything; especially this Tshirt:

Risks and challenges
This is the first project of this kind that KDHX has undertaken and the biggest thing we've done in 25 years. As with all we do, building our new home is a community effort and requires the support of many to complete. Kickstarter contributions will provide essential funding to equip the new venue to create a premier listening room experience for artists and audiences.
As with all renovation projects, there can be unforeseen delays. Most issues were found during the demolition phase of the project, but there could still be a few surprises. Should problems arise, we will work diligently to get them resolved and have The Stage at KDHX up and running as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
