A unique email address must be used for each application. 

NOTE: If you are submitting multiple bands: Must use a different email address for each application. If you do not, the system overwrites the old application.

If you do not have multiple email addresses to use, we recommend using GMAIL and adding “+” and a unique digit to each one. For example:  music+1@gmail.commusic+2@gmail.commusic+3@gmail.com. Gmail recognizes the original email address before the “+” and this will serve as a unique email address to submit multiple applications

We will note each submission with your name and correct address for each.

Apologies and thank you for your understanding as we work through this glitch.

Application Season:
July 1 – October 1.
