Flagstaff Fold Festival is a traditional Bluegrass and American Folk Music fest that's looking for the best talent Sonicbids has to offer. Our unique location in the mountains of Northern Arizona brings many touring musicians through Arizona, gig-bound from all over the country. The Flagstaff Folk Festival was born in 2002 and we currently partner with Flagstaff Cultural Partners and the Pioneer Museum, to run four stages, including workshop and jam areas. In 2013 we had 112 bands and performers! If you have a traditional Folk or Bluegrass sound, this is the fest for you!

The Opportunity

Also known as The Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music, FFOTM is a multicultural celebration of traditional Folk music, drinks, food, art, and folk culture. This is an amazing opportunity that gives a platform to local, regional, national and international artists representing the folk culture. The FFOTM is one of Arizona's largest and most loved events and has been voted one of the best Folk festivals in America. This fest attracts crowds in excess of 20, 000 music enthusiasts every year. We're currently booking Sonicbids artists for various time slots throughout the festival. If you have a great sound, and you're looking to gain a wider audience, this is the gig for you.
