GOF Band Application
Some frequently asked questions:
Can our band use previously submitted or published materials?
All bands MUST submit a recording, photo, and band description, BUT you can certainly use previous tapes, photos, and band descriptions if they accurately reflect your current band membership, performance level, and information. We’d prefer a new set of materials though, since last year’s band applications/press kits may not be complete any more.
Are New Bands Welcome?
Definitely! The band committee is always looking for new bands to feature at the festival. The GOF was started mainly to give up-and-coming local bands a venue to perform for a larger bluegrass audience.
We’re an established local band and have played at GOF several times–do we still need to send in an application?
YES! To be fair to everyone, all bands need to apply by the deadline to be considered by the festival committee. If all of the band members are the same and you wish to use a previous year’s band packet, please contact Penny Godlis.
