The Nelsonville Music Festival has become inundated with band submissions over the years and only encourages bands to submit if they truly believe they are a good potential fit with the opportunity. This means that only bands with a good touring history and proven draw should submit. If you have never toured outside of your hometown, you will most likely not be chosen. Please look at the history of artists the Nelsonville Music Festival has presented in the past to help you decide if your band is a good fit for the festival.
