CALL FOR MUSICIANS

Medford Oktoberfest and Music Festival is now accepting applications to perform at the 2022 festival to be held on Friday September 16 and Saturday September 17 at Freedom Park in Medford, New Jersey. 

 

The 2022 festival will feature multiple stages for live music -- the main stage for established artists who want to perform original and/or cover music for a large audience, and a large gazebo setting for both acoustic acts and bands.  Most of the available performance opportunities will be on the gazebo stage.  Since our inception, we have received far more applications than we were able to accept and we expect the same this year.  All artists are welcome to apply, but please be aware that this is an all-ages event and we will only accept artists whose material is appropriate for such an occasion. 

Before you apply, please be aware that you will not receive payment.  It is not because we don't want to pay for your time and talent, but because the event is free to attend, which helps us draw thousands of people but does not produce revenue from ticket sales.  We use the available funds for professional sound crews and stages to help you look and sound your best.  Our festival has historically featured artists looking to play their own original material for a large and appreciative crowd.  We know this does not work for everyone, but if it works for you we hope you will apply.  You will be able to sell merchandise all day and promote yourselves to the fullest.  We will also do our part to promote your music in the weeks and months heading into the festival.  

 

If you want to be considered, email your links (including live video) to Mark at moberstaedt@archerlaw.com.   Good luck!
