Strawberry Festival Performer Application

Strawberry Festival 2014 will take place on Saturday, July 19th and Sunday, July 20th.  

Musicians/bands should submit their 2014 SF Performer Applications here online at vashonevents.com.  We strongly prefer an electronic Performer Application via email or through this site because it is more environmentally conscious and it's easier for us to manage, but bands can still submit via snail mail by sending hard copy submissions to the Vashon Chamber of Commerce/17141 Vashon Hwy SW/Vashon/WA/98070/Attention Pete.  

Given that it is a festival atmosphere and the changeover between bands/performers needs to be as swift as possible, please be advised that we will allow 15 minutes maximum on either side. 

In order to be considered for a time slot at Strawberry Festival, there are three things that we need along with this application.    

1.  Please email at least two high resolution band/performer photos for our promotional purposes to vashonevents@gmail.com.   It is important that the photos are high resolution.

2.  For our sound engineers, please provide us with a stage plot and all sound needs for your band.  We are looking for all information that we can provide to our sound man before the event that will help cut down on lengthy set-up times.   We need names of everyone in your band, what they play and what they will need from our sound engineers.  Please fill out the Stage Plot form found on this web site and email or mail this to Vashon Events/P.O. Box 2124/Vashon/WA/98070.  PLEASE DO NOT FORGET! This will guarantee that we can provide you the best sound available and have a quick and smooth change-over between acts. 

3.  A Press Release or bio about you or your band.  Preferably one paragraph for print in the Beachcomer, our local newspaper.

Thank you for providing us with this information.  Making this an open process allows it to be a fair selection, with the understanding that we will do everything possible to accommodate everyone, but it will depend on how many applications are received.  We plan to review all applications and make our performer selections no later than June 1st, 2014.  Those selected will be notified at once. Strawberry Festival information, rules and regulations, directions, ferry schedules, scheduled load-in and set times, parking information and passes, etc. will be mailed to the musicians.  Each musician’s sound and stage requirements will be documented for our sound engineers in an organized folder.

____  At least two high-resolution photos (emailed to vashonevents@gmail.com)

____  A musician/band bio or Press Release (emailed to vashonevents@gmail.com)
