30 Days of Dead


The rumors are true! Each day in November we give away a high-quality MP3 download. That's 30 days of unreleased Grateful Dead tracks from the vault, selected by Dead archivist and producer David Lemieux. Intrigued? We're also going to put your knowledge to the test and give you the chance to win some sweet swag from the Dead.

If you've been here before, jump right in with the link below. If you need a little refresher, here's how it all goes down:

You know your Ables from your Bakers from your C's, but can your finely tuned ears differentiate the cosmic "comeback" tour from a spacey 70's show? Each day we'll post a free download from one of the Dead's coveted shows. Will it be from that magical night at Madison Square Garden in '93 or from way back when they were warming it up at Winterland? Is that Pigpen's harmonica we hear? Brent on keys? Step right up and try your hand all November long and win prizes while you're at it.

Guess the venue and date correctly and you'll be automatically entered to win the prize of the day - a 2024 Grateful Dead Wall Calendar. Each day a winner will be selected at random, so take your time and make your best guess! Answer correctly and you will also be automatically entered to win the Grand Prize - a copy of our SOLD OUT HERE COMES SUNSHINE 1973 boxed set.

    Definitely SURREAL.... The complete show is outstanding. Thanks Dave and all involved with 30 DoD it's been another GRATEFUL time. I wish all DEADHEADS who take the challenge each day the best in the future ahead of us. When reading all the comments there's times I feel as if I had been standing alongside y'all at this or that show. JUST DON'T NEVER NEVER KNOW, no no.
    Stay HEALTHY!

    Miles from home. No computer and phone just won’t stream most of the time. I give up.
