This application is valid for performing musicians, including bands and acoustic or solo acts.
Applicants: Please fill in all required fields, including uploading a track and promo image. If after submitting this application you wish to upload a different track, please contact Geoff prior to the festival. Only apply if you are available to perform at any time slot, on either day. The deadline for submission is August 15th. Performers may submit beyond that, but must understand they may not be selected. However, late applicants will be placed on a "waiting list", in the event of a cancellation of other acts. All applicants will be notified of their acceptance by mid April.
Each festival, there is an overwhelming demand for musicians wishing to perform at this amazing event. We would love to have everyone perform every time, but since space is limited, we must select acts based on a certain criteria. Quality and uniqueness in music and live performances is one. Additionally, weight is given to bands that are local to Columbus and are actively involved in the music scene. Special consideration is given to those who can contribute to the operations of the festival. Lastly, bands that have played a previous festival may be skipped for one event to give new and upcoming bands a chance to perform. This ensures that each festival's lineup is vastly different from the previous, and gives new bands an opportunity to perform in front of engaged audiences.
