Performer Applications

We are accepting performer submissions for the Dawson City Music Festival between Monday, October 2nd and Monday, November 13th 2017. On October 2nd, a new online submissions platform will be launched.

Every year, our small, isolated music festival receives over six hundred submissions. Most are extremely strong – the breadth and depth of the Canadian and international music community continues to impress us. The number of submissions far exceeds the number of available performance slots. We encourage, appreciate, and listen to submissions, and will get back to as many artists as possible.


If you’d like to apply to our festival, please note that we are accepting applications between October 2nd and November 13th through a new, online submissions form.

Please do not send us physical (hard copy) packages by mail, unless directly requested. DO NOT ADD US TO YOUR EMAIL NEWSLETTERS OR MAILING LISTS.

We endeavour to contact each artist who sends a submission but ask that you do not contact us after we have acknowledged receipt of your materials. We are a very small staff and the volume of submissions is exceptionally high. We will contact you if we are interested in pursuing a booking. We keep all submissions on file for two years.
