Your Farmers Market is starting to book musical acts for the 2018 season, and we would like to invite more musical acts to apply. It would be great to get some homegrown Milwaukie talent, but this is open to any applicants who want to apply.
Some basic rules:
- Acts play from 10am to at least 1pm — typically three 45-minute sets. Acts need to be onsite in time to be fully set up before 10am — for most acts, this means checking in with the Market Manager between 9 and 9:30am. Acts need to start breaking down their equipment no later than 1:30pm.
- The Market supplies a 10×10 tent and a Yamaha Passport sound system.
- Any act which has not appeared at our Market before will be expected to come 1-2 weeks before their appointed date to meet with the Market Manager and familiarize themselves with the sound equipment.
- All acts must have either an updated website or Facebook page, to facilitate promotion of their appearance at the Market.
Payment ranges from $150 to $250 per week. Acts are also allowed to sell CDs and to put out a hat for tips.
The Market welcomes all types of music, but note that the sound levels will be kept to a modest level, so as not to interfere with Market vendors’ ability to interact with customers.
To apply, please complete the application here and email to the Market Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a link to your website or Facebook page. If those pages do not have samples of your music, please attach samples of at least two different songs to your email.
