Selected artists will be required to provide promotional materials. 

The Opportunity

The Festival launched in February 2011 with great success. Without any major sponsorship other than some assistance from VP's and influential industry friends, David vs Goliath Music Festival drew big crowds who experienced unforgettable music. 

In a time when the music industry paradigm is in turmoil, in this present day and time there is a need for something new. David vs Goliath Music Festival & Series acknowledges the fact that Grassroots is where it all begins. In the streets, in the garages, in the indie live music clubs, whether small, medium size, even in the 500 + capacity venues, here is where it all starts. David vs Goliath Music Festival coordinators have banded together to bring forth an effort to give all an opportunity and to nurture our peers, brought forth by musicians for musicians and of course the fans.
