Here is an opportunity for performers to bring their style of acoustic & roots music to a very special stage at the Ossipee Valley Music Festival. If you play music and you want to be heard… this is the place for you. Please note: this is for the Stage Too! Showcase Stage. The festival does not accept solicitations for the main stage. These are unpaid performance slots that get you in front of an audience.
- Applicants must fill out the form, and include a LIVE performance video or soundcloud link. Studio submissions are not considered.
- Submissions will be juried and the selection committee will notify those who are chosen. You will be notified between May 15th and June 15th.
- Performers can play as a solo act or as an ensemble.
- Sets will be a maximum of 45 minutes.
- Music style or genre will not be limited within the general umbrella of ‘roots, americana, blues, bluegrass, spoken word, country and similar folk or traditional arts’, we typically will not consider full electric bands, but will consider hybrid bands using some acoustic and some electric instruments. No pre-recorded tracks.
- The showcase stage is not a paid performance, but the performers will receive a complimentary 4-day pass to the festival, please note: Stage Too! performers do not receive additional passes (aka “guest list” passes). Performers cannot bring additional roadies, sound engineers or merch supervisors, anyone not performing must purchase a ticket!
- Professional sound and lighting will be provided.
- A table will be provided for Stage Too! Bands to sell CD’s, T-shirts, etc.
- If accepted, please write back with a full list of names of performers, instruments and any tech needed.
- Artists will be asked to sign a standard contract
Please note! Please do NOT send CDs to our PO Box, or studio videos to our email. Think: Tiny Desk Concert. We truly only consider live, single take recordings.
