Interested in playing the 2015 Humboldt Folklife Festival?

We are starting to plan this year's Folklife Festival! The 37th Annual Humboldt Folklife Fest will tentatively be held July 11-18th and we're looking at a similar structure to previous years.  

If you would like to perform, please submit a description of your music and a sample of your current work in the form of an mp3 or weblinks to nancy@humboldtfolklife.org.  If you prefer the old-fashioned US mail, you can send it to PO Box 1061 Arcata CA 95518.  


We regret that we do not have enough room for everyone to perform, but we try to find room for new acts and returning favorites. Please send your submission by April 17th.

If you would like to be a part of our festival planning committee or volunteer staff, please let us know. 

Thank you for supporting live music!
