Artist Submission

We appreciate your interest in working with the Festival or referring an artist to us. We take it as a compliment, and we want to say thanks for thinking of us!

We love reviewing every opportunity, and we very much appreciate every submission. We look for quality, consistency, originality.

Please note that we only review emailed submissions. You will get an email confirmation that we have received your information and there is no need to follow up.

We assess every submission, but it is only fair to let you know that we take a very small percentage of the very large number of artists who approach us. If you do not hear from us within 30 days, it means that unfortunately we are not able to include you in the next festival lineup.

Again, thank you for thinking of us and for making the world brighter!
