How the VIP Insider Series benefit works

Our VIP Insider Series is one of the most popular and fun benefits of joining a KEXP VIP Club.
 

At VIP Insider Series events, donors have the opportunity to get to know each other, engage in exclusive conversations with KEXP DJs and staff, go behind-the-scenes at the station, and experience special performances by KEXP artists.

 

Recent VIP Insider Series events have included:

 

  • "Get ready with me" hosted by DJs Abbie, Eva and Evie who shared their getting-ready rituals for their shows.
  • "Basement tours" with DJs Troy and Kevin who shared an exclusive peek at their deep, personal collections of records and music treasures.
  • "Sound and Vision Q&A" with DJs Larry and Emily who discussed the show's mission and gave a deep dive into their storytelling process.
  • Remote session with Arlo Parks who gave early access to a special YouTube performance months before it was released.

Since March 2020, the VIP Insider Series has moved to a virtual format and events are offered at various times of the day and week. We look forward to moving to a hybrid format of virtual and in-person events once it's safe to physically gather together again.

 

How to register for a VIP Insider Series event:

 

Once you've joined a VIP Club, you will receive invites to the Insider Series via email. It's rare, but events sometimes experience capacity limitations, so we've constructed a process for ensuring everyone receives advanced notice when an event is scheduled.

 

  1. VIP Insider Series events are scheduled on a rolling-basis, throughout the year. You will receive a pre-invite two weeks prior to the VIP Insider Series event. The pre-invite announces any event details including date, time, location and artist if it's a performance.  Also included is the date when the official invitation will be sent. Make sure to mark your calendar for the official invite – that’s how you’ll RSVP!
     
  2. You will then receive the official invitation. RSVP for yourself and a guest! These events can sometimes fill up quickly, so RSVP as soon as possible. If the event has reached capacity, please join the stand-by list.
     
  3. Attend the event! Have fun seeing a band or DJ you already love (or discover a new one) and mingle with your fellow KEXP VIP Club music lovers.
     

As a 500 Club donor you will receive four invitations per year and as a Gold Club or Platinum Club donor you will receive eight invitations per year. Your RSVP is required to guarantee admittance. To make your donation and join a VIP Giving Club, please click here.
