How To Get Booked By A Festival Even If Nobody Knows Who You Are

Nobody knows who you are, let alone how awesome you are? You’d be surprised how attuned some festival-booking ears are to up-and-comers. From side-stages to opening slots to last-minute roster replacements, the festival experience can be a boon to exposure-hungry talent looking for a break in front of the biggest crowds of their career. We’ve got programmers with insight on how to break into the festival scene, how NOT to, and what to do with the opportunity.
