European World of Bluegrass Festival Applications

Submitted by Liz Meyer EWOB

If your band is interested in performing at the European World of  Bluegrass Festival 2011, it’s now time to make application.

Applications will close on December 1, 2010 with no extension possible.  EWOB dates  2nd to 4th June 2011.

For all necessary info, please go to In the center of our  Home page, you can find links to all application (Sign-Up: Bands) and  musician info (Festival Info > Band/Musician FAQ).

Please do not send links for online/digital music downloads.  All bands must send 4 CDs with the materials listed on the website. You  can
save on postal costs by removing plastic jewel cases, but please  include all paper parts.  After band selection is finished, your CDs  will be sent to
European bluegrass radio programs to help promote your  music and the EWOB Festival.

Remember that part of your application goes by mail and part by email,  so please read all the instructions at > Sign-Up > Bands.

The showcase at EWOB, just like IBMA’s WOB, is an unpaid performance.  However, musicians do not pay any fees to apply or perform at the EWOB  Festival. European bands receive a small subsidy for travel expenses,  but the musicians and the festival volunteers all work for free. For  bands from the USA and Canada, it’s a great investment in future tours,  performing for festival & concert organizers, agents, DJs, and music press.
