LRFest will select at least 4 acts from these applications to perform at LRFest 2024. Selected artists will get:

  • at least 2 paid performances (house concerts, average $300-500 per show)

  • a showcase in front of dozens of house concert presenters and hundreds of music fans from the Tampa Bay Area and beyond.

  • a one year membership to, a global (mostly U.S.) resource for booking house concerts and listening rooms. ($400 value).

more info about the festival schedule.

Your Goal: Submit live video that makes people want to see you perform a house concert. A second live video as well as a personal, professional website is also required for applications.

Video 1 should be a strong representation of what the act would sound/look like at a house concert. (Live Performances ONLY.) Creative approximations are fine, such as a simple setup with a few (optional) clapping fans in a homey or intimate setting.

Video 2 format is less strict, but could certainly benefit from the same tips as Video 1.

Website Your personalized, professional artist website. Not a linktree or a page on some other website.

  • Judges will consider performance/song quality and "listening room feel." Although video is the primary medium for judging, this is not a video contest.

  • Watch some sample videos from previous contests.

  • Winners must be able to tour as they appear in the video. Most house concerts cannot accommodate more than 3 members or full drum sets. Solo and duo acts have a significant advantage for bookings.

  • Videos - we must be able to see and hear the musicians clearly. Audience engagement gives you an advantage.

  • Judges show a clear preference for original, non-aggressive music. Cursing and/or screaming can limit your appeal.
