Are you interested in playing at
Springfield's largest music festival?
What we offer:
  • Opportunity to perform in front of Springfield's largest crowds on one of five stages (including around and/or on the steps of the historic Old State Capitol)
  • Professional sound and lighting, including two fully dressed SL-100 main stages
  • Cross-promotion in print and social media, including an exclusive spotlight post.
  • Complimentary admission for all performing artists for the weekend
  • Complimentary meal and beverage tickets for performing artists (on day of performance)
  • Hotel accommodations for acts traveling greater than 60 miles (discounted rates for local acts)
What we need:
60+ musical acts interested in donating their performances across June 5th and 6th, 2020 in downtown Springfield, potentially rain or shine.
Performing artists willing to arrive, set up, and perform within their arranged times in order to not cut into other performer's time slots.
Reasonable follow-up (timely responses) with our Stage Director
Cross-promotion of the official LoG Event (DO NOT create your own event) on Facebook and other media
Volunteers - if you know any, send them our way! Performers are our most valuable volunteers, however- without you, there's no music festival!
