Last year they chose over 50% of their performing bands and artists from Sonicbids. Their mission is to take really good, but relatively unknown, artists to give them a great opportunity to network with other musicians.



The festival requires bands to spend the entire weekend at the festival. This is not a "come play and leave right away" type of festival. They have a great hospitality barn for artists and camping for 6,000, including a very clean shower house.

Terms And Conditions

Although we request that all bands come Friday and leave Sunday, sometimes a band member may have a job or a good reason why they can not stay both Friday & Saturday nights. However, bands that can come Friday and leave Sunday will be given preference. Irregardless, all bands must be at their asssigned stage two hours prior to their playing time for set-up and sound checks.
