Stage Too! Applications are open for 2023! 

Stage Too! Is our hole-in-the-pines intimate showcase stage featuring up and coming acts from New England and beyond! Performers are invited to apply to this stage between January 1st and May 1st each year. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and decisions are announced by June 1st. Because of the high level of submissions we are not able to respond to each application. We do not accept submissions for the Main Stage. Please apply to Stage Too! At the bottom of this page. 

Stage Too! also hosts Main Stage performers in a more intimate setting. In past years performers on Stage Too! Have included Sierra Ferrell, The California Honeydrops, The Infamous Stringdusters, Mile Twelve, and many more! 

Stage Too! also hosts Stage Too After Dark, a magical late night performance by an artist whose music is especially tranquil, relaxing or meditative, as an alternative to the Brews and Bluegrass Stage or the Barn Dance for more chill audience members. Past performances have included a cranky puppet show from Anna and Elizabeth, and traditional Brazilian song with Kelly Pinheiro and the Nebulous Quartet, and a screening of the film Dakota 38. 

Submission Requirements:

Between dates of January 1st and May 15th each year 

Performers must play instruments or sing (no loops/sampling or overdubs), and perform music in the genres of roots, americana, folk, bluegrass, jazz, blues, soul, classical, country, traditional world or indigenous, appalachian or string band music. (We don't book death metal punk, sorry!) 

It is preferred for you to submit a video, but we also accept an Mp3 recording. This MUST be a single, live take--no studio recordings, it MUST include the people performing at the festival and be representative of what your live show will sound like.
