Perform at the 2021 festival
We’re a jazz and blues festival and we champion high quality musicians playing original music or offering thrilling shows. We are brave in our programming, constantly on the lookout for the highest quality and often give a platform to new and surprising music and shows.
EJBF follows an open artists’ submission system which helps inform our programming to allow us to offer an ever varied, adventurous and fresh programme to our audiences each year.
Priority is given to:
Exclusive and unique exciting show concepts
New and/or original work
Artists who help us present a diverse, fully representative programme
Smaller ensembles (up to octets)
Music or shows that can be presented live and/or digitally
Digital only concepts
In your submission, please include the following information:
Name of band/show title & description of the music
EPK/Promo Assets (videos, social media, hi res photos, website, Spotify,Soundcloud, etc.)
Where you/band are based
Tech Spec if you have one
Artists/Management representative’s contacts if you have one
Any other useful information that will allow us to get to know you/your band better
Applications can be submitted until mid-March 2021. Please note that due to the large volume of submissions we’re expecting to receive, we will only get in touch should a concert opportunity arise.
Where to submit your application/expression of interest:
Please note that due to current circumstances, priority will be given to UK based artists. If your band is based anywhere else, please send us comprehensive information as to how you are planning the tour (and related contingency plans) and any useful information which may allow us to asses feasibility of the proposal.
All submissions/artists must also complete our Equality & Diversity Monitoring Form that can be found here.
Please note that we do NOT accept applications via Social Media or postal submissions
