for performerS

IMPORTANT NOTE!  The registration period for performers has closed as of Friday, April 19th. You may still submit an application, but unless you have a host site that has specifically agreed to serve as your host, it is unlikely we will be able to accommdate any more performers. You are still welcome (and encouraged) to come share the joy and music of the day as an attendee!

We are currently accepting submissions for performers to play at PlumFest 2019. Generally, we are looking for individuals, combos or small bands to play on porches around Plum Island. Most sets will run approximately 1 hour per group. Local artists will be given preference, as will groups performing original and/or relatively “acoustic” music suitable for residential settings. We do hope to have several sites where larger bands can be accommodated.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 2019:  As PlumFest continues to grow in popularity, we have pretty much 'max'd out' our capacity to feature full bands. Many of our hosts sites are simply not suitable for large bands, and the proximity of many of our sites makes it logistically difficult to support full bands without encroaching on the many acoustic acts, singer/songwriters, etc., that are so essential to the vibe and spirit of PlumFest. We encouarge all interested parties to apply, but unfortunately may not be able to accommodate every band.

PlumFest is a completely grass-roots effort, born out of a volunteer, “let’s make it happen” spirit. So, unfortunately we do not have the funding to pay performers. There will be the opportunity for merchandise tables and tip jars at each performance site, but the pay scale for all artists will be the same – a basket of gratitude and a cupful of PI love!
