Each year (roughly six weeks from late January to early March), we run a band application process to pick the 18-20 local/regional bands that make up the bulk of our lineup. Each year, we try to program a mix of local faves, along with new and emerging voices from the greater Maplewood area.
In addition, we also invite 1, 2, or 3 Headline Acts and Featured Acts to highlight each night.
We recently announced our postponement of the 2021 festival to Oct 2-3, 2021. We are intending to honor band applications from 2020 forward to 2021. We are NOT intending (at this time) to re-open band applications. We ARE open to having those bands from the 2020 application process submit a new or updated song for consideration. Email us.
