There is also a 20% License Fee on all ticket sales as well as merchandise sold via the #DENStore by the Host-Organizer. 

Whether you're curating an intimate 250-person affair or a grand 1000-person celebration, #DEN equips Host-Organizers with a comprehensive turn-key production platform and tools to craft a one-of-a-kind experience. Our seamless interface allows effortless customization, from venue and vendor selection to choosing local nonprofit beneficiaries, ensuring flawless execution.  The license includes our signature trademark logo and name, our website platform (, and all support services.  In addition to the trademark license, we also provide images, a media kit, production guidelines documents, as well as organizational and technical support.
