Now Accepting Applications for 2024!
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR 2024: 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.
Also, for 2024 we will be giving preference to bands that have arranged with a specific host site that can accommodate them; many of our musicians either live on the Island or have strong local connections, and many homeowners have ties to specific performers. We will accept all entries but you are more likely to gain a spot at PlumFest if you “pre-arrange” your own site/host.
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. You are welcome to set up a merchandise table at your performance site, but the pay scale for all artists will be the same – a basket of gratitude and a cupful of PI love!
Applications to perform at PlumFest will close for everyone on August 19th, and we hope to have a schedule in place by September 1.
