2019 Band Submissions
Welcome! This is the official submission form for bands and performers interested in performing at Allentown ArtsFest 2019! Please read through to the bottom, and if you'd like to have your band or act considered, you can submit your info for review.
Allentown ArtsFest is an admission free, 3-day outdoor music and art festival hosted by the Alternative Gallery, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and is 100% volunteer-run.
ArtsFest showcases a full scale skate park, large graffiti murals created on site, break-dancing battles, screenings of independent films & shorts, comedy & improv sets, children's art activities, live art, demos, great local food & craft beers, a technology area, unique artwork from our local community, and three stages highlighting a diverse range of musical genres by local and touring performers.
You can check out last year's 60+ performance lineup here.
This year, we're celebrating the 6th Anniversary of the festival, and we're looking for even more bands and performers of all types!
All performance areas are outdoors, under large tents on professionally installed stages.
All sound and lighting equipment will be provided by the festival.
There is no dedicated backline so bands must bring their own music gear. Some shared equipment may be available but prior arrangements must be made.
Set lengths run from 30-60 minutes, averaging around 45 minutes. Set lengths will be determined during scheduling.
Tables will be provided for bands to sell merch. Bands/Performers keep 100% of all merch sales and/or donations.
Bands will be provided assistance with loading in & out by our volunteer crew.
ArtsFest is a volunteer-run event and funded mostly through small donations, there is no direct compensation available for performers at the festival.
Beer! We can't offer much in the way of dollars, but we can definitely hook up each performer with a couple of beer tickets. (21+ only, of course.)
In order to be considered for Allentown ArtsFest 2019, all interested performers must submit their info through the online form, including contact info, availability, and samples of their music.
Submissions are open until May 15th.
All selected performers will be contacted by June 15th.
NOTE: Due to number of submissions, we ask that you please submit only once.
To apply for Allentown ArtsFest 2019, continue on to send us your info.
Thank you for your support!
