BIG BRUSH CREEK ABOUT THE BANDS
This landmark music festival is made from the beauty of the natural Tennessee landscape blended with the natural sounds of its music. Memorial Day weekend 2019 Big Brush Creek Farm will come alive with roots music made here. Americana is alive.
We are seeking 25 of the most interesting, emerging roots bands from our region. To qualify for this invitational music format, the musical genres must be either progressive country, newgrass, blues, soul or heddie rock. (not necessarily defined for these genres), but if you're good, we suggest submitting your band. We expect to fill the bill by Nov. 15, 2018.
We are also searching for experienced bluegrass Troubadours to warm our guests around the nightly Bonfire after 11pm either Fri, Sat and / or Sun. Strolling slowly and playing, you may be a solo performer, duo or trio. Use the SUBMIT A BAND button..
We look forward to seeing and hearing your entry. All you have to do to apply is to click on submit a band, complete the submission form.
We only have one stage, so the entire audience can focus on each of the 25, one at a time. We consider each of the bands performing as headliners and deserve our festival’s full attention.
For those bands not performing this year, we all offer festival tickets at half price and welcome you to enter next year. We may even have a second stage by then.
All bands appearing are paid, fed, promoted aggressively and treated well in the backstage area. You will perform on a professional stage with roof, sound and lights, powered by huge separate generators. We’ll have a Green Room (or RV) waiting for you. You’re welcome to camp with us over the weekend and enjoy the festival.
