FAR-West Official Showcases Are Now Open for Submission!

FAR-West Official Showcases Are Now Open for Submission!

We are pleased to announce the opening of submissions for

the 2020 FAR-West ‘Official Showcase’ lineup.

The goal of the Official Showcase process is to choose a diverse group of high quality artists who are prepared to tour and perform in the FAR-West region. These artists should represent different musical genres and configurations and will be selected by an independent, juried judging process. 

Given your busy schedules, we appreciate you taking the time to submit. Five or six* different artists (a total of 10-12 selected finalists) will be featured on both Friday and Saturday nights in 30-minute slots (including set up and breakdown). * The final format/number of acts is still to be determined.

We’ve made a couple of changes in the submission process to make it as artist-friendly as possible and hope that the guidelines and tips on the linked page will answer all of your questions and make it easy for you to submit. We do ask that you read the guidelines carefully, please. Any questions can then be directed to the email address provided.

Please Note: If FAR-West is forced to cancel the conference due to COVID-19 concerns, those who submitted for an official showcase will receive a full refund of their $25 (US Dollars Twenty-Five and No Cents) submission fee.  Please also see the FAR-West Cancellation Policy.

If you would like to apply for an ‘Official Showcase’ slot, please review this year’s guidelines, which have changed from previous years.
