Applying to Perform

* Artists: Please read this before you contact us *

For each Lotus World Music & Arts Festival, we begin with an artist list that far exceeds a final roster of approximately 25 artists. Our director selects artists based on the strength of their performances and material, as well as their fit with our international roster. We discover artists through conferences, recommendations, and direct submissions and usually avoid repeating artists over several years to give others an opportunity and to present fresh programming to our audiences.

If you wish to contact us to inquire about performing at our festival, or in our Lotus Blossoms educational outreach programming, send a brief e-mail introducing yourself and your music to lee [at] lotusfest.org. Include links to your website, MySpace page, YouTube links, or Sonicbids account. If we are interested in learning more, or in receiving a complete package, we will contact you. In an effort to prevent paper and packaging waste, we prefer that artists contact us electronically.

Please note: We receive hundreds of inquiries each year and unfortunately do not have the resources or staff to reply to all inquiries, to discuss your work, or to respond to questions regarding your submission.

Thank you for your interest  —
