If you are interested in performing at the 2024 Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival, submit your EPK no later than December 31, 2023 to talent@winthropbluesfestival.com.

We begin reviewing talent in the late fall. Keep in mind that we only have 12 slots for our festival, and competition is keen for those few slots.
If we are slow to respond to your submission we apologize. For the handful of slots reserved on the Festival lineup for regional acts and lesser known national acts (the rest being filled by the proven touring acts and headliners we actively seek) we are inundated with submissions. We are a volunteer-run organization and can be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of submissions. Bands can submit EPKs however works best for them or they can submit a hard copy.

We have much respect for all of you as a musicians, performers, businesses. Putting together a festival lineup is much like curating a museum exhibition, and we look to regional acts to complement and round out the lineup shaped by our headliners.

Mail hard copies to:
