Partner performing on the Lake Stage at Hillside 2018

We only accept applications for categories that are selected by volunteer committees (links below). We book a wide variety of acts for our festivals and we learn about them through regular channels--agents, managers, word of mouth, attendance at conferences, gigs, and events.  We cannot accept applications from artists who do not fall into te categories listed.  We simply cannot handle the volume of applications (which have been in the thousands).  We thank you for making music and for respecting our process.

Please note: The deadline to apply was March 1st, 2020. Typically, due to the volume of requests we receive, we will only be able to contact those whose submissions we have selected. Applications are now closed.

Good luck!
