One of the best things about your application to this Festival is that most judges are active house concert presenters from around the world, with an emphasis on the southeastern U.S. Every year, we see hosts book a few acts regardless of the contest results. We think that's super-cool.
This year, at least FOUR artists will be selected as showcasing acts, and will be offered 2-3 paid performances during the festival week.
ALSO, FOUR additional top acts will receive 4 months free artist membership (new or renewal) to LRN. ($195 value)
