for performers

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Our sign-up period for performers interested in playing at PlumFest 2018 has closed as of April 15th. We will try to accommodate as many performers as we can who have signed up by that date. If you can find a local homeowner or site that can host you, all the better! A huge "thank you" to all of the wonderful musicians who have played at previous PlumFests or are willing to play at this year's event!

Due to the very high volume of performers who have signed up already, we will most likely not be able to accommodate any more submissions. Sorry!


We are actively seeking performers to play at PlumFest 2018. Generally, we are looking for individuals, combos or small bands to play on porches around Plum Island. Most sets will run approximately 1 hour per group. Local artists will be given preference, as will groups performing original and/or relatively “acoustic” music suitable for residential settings. We do hope to have several sites where larger bands can be accommodated.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 2018:  As PlumFest continues to grow in popularity, we have pretty much 'max'd out' our capacity to feature full bands. Many of our hosts sites are simply not suitable for large bands, and the proximity of many of our sites makes it logistically difficult to support full bands without encroaching on the many acoustic acts, singer/songwriters, etc., that are so essential to the vibe and spirit of PlumFest. We encouarge all interested parties to apply, but unfortunately may not be able to accommodate every band.

PlumFest is a completely grass-roots effort, born out of a volunteer, “let’s make it happen” spirit. So, unfortunately we do not have the funding to pay performers. There will be the opportunity for merchandise tables and tip jars at each performance site, but the pay scale for all artists will be the same – a basket of gratitude and a cupful of PI love!
