* Artists: Please read this before you contact us *

NOTE: The 2017 Festival is fully booked.  Consideration of artists for 2018 will begin in January.

Please note: We receive hundreds of inquiries each year and unfortunately do not have the resources or staff to reply to all inquiries, to discuss your work, or to respond to questions regarding your submission.

For each Lotus World Music & Arts Festival, we begin with an artist list that far exceeds a final roster of approximately 25 artists. Our Artistic Director selects artists based on the strength of their performances and material, as well as their fit with our international roster. We discover artists through conferences, recommendations, and direct submissions and usually avoid repeating artists over several years to give others an opportunity and to present fresh programming to our audiences.

If you wish to contact us to inquire about performing at our festival, or in our Lotus Blossoms educational outreach programming, send a brief e-mail introducing yourself and your music to [email protected]. Include links to your website, YouTube links, SoundCloud, MySpace page, Sonicbids account, or whatever other materials will help us fully understand what you have to offer. If we are interested in learning more, or in receiving a complete package, we will contact you. In an effort to prevent paper and packaging waste, we prefer that artists contact us electronically.

Thank you for your interest  —
