If your band is interested in performing at the European World ofÂ Bluegrass Festival 2011, it’s now time to make application.
Applications will close on December 1, 2010 with no extension possible.Â EWOB datesÂ 2nd to 4th June 2011.
For all necessary info, please go to www.ewob.eu. In the center of ourÂ Home page, you can find links to all application (Sign-Up: Bands) andÂ musician info (Festival Info > Band/Musician FAQ).
Please do not send links for online/digital music downloads.Â All bands must send 4 CDs with the materials listed on the website. YouÂ can
save on postal costs by removing plastic jewel cases, but pleaseÂ include all paper parts.Â After band selection is finished, your CDsÂ will be sent to
European bluegrass radio programs to help promote yourÂ music and the EWOB Festival.
Remember that part of your application goes by mail and part by email,Â so please read all the instructions at www.ewob.eu > Sign-Up > Bands.
The showcase at EWOB, just like IBMA’s WOB, is an unpaid performance.Â However, musicians do not pay any fees to apply or perform at the EWOBÂ Festival. European bands receive a small subsidy for travel expenses,Â but the musicians and the festival volunteers all work for free. ForÂ bands from the USA and Canada, it’s a great investment in future tours,Â performing for festival & concert organizers, agents, DJs, and music press.
