New Artist Submissions Open November 1!

Posted Oct 27, 2022

Update as of 12:00 (noon) on 11/1:

Holy. Cow.
Thank you for the incredible response to our Mile 10 (2023) New Artist Submission Form. We are sorry to share that the submission process for new artists to be considered for Mile 10 has already reached (and exceeded) the maximum, so we have closed the submission portal. To say that we are humbled by this overwhelming response from potential new artists would be an understatement. A bit stunned might be a more apt description as this is, by far, the biggest response we have had for the open submission process since Mile of Music started in 2013.
Thanks to all the artists that submitted and to fans who encouraged their favorites artists and friends to submit.
If you did not get a chance to submit, we hope you’ll stay tuned for our Mile 11 (2024) New Artist Submission form, which will launch on November 1, 2023.

Submissions for 2023 (Mile 10) are now closed.

Artists who have NOT played Mile of Music Festival in the past nine years can submit here until we reach our submission limit.

Submissions are designed for new artists only! If you are a returning artist, please contact us directly. 

Our team accepts a limited amount of submissions, and we expect the submission period to only last a few days for this year.

NEW artists will need the following in order to submit here

  • Email Address
  • Artist or Band Name
  • Current City and State
  • Music Genre
  • Up to Three (3) links to YouTube videos that best represent your sound and performance. (Live performances preferred.)
  • Facebook Link or Handle
  • Instagram Link or Handle
  • Twitter Link or Handle (not required)
  • TikTok Link or Handle (not required)
  • Link to your Spotify or equivalent streaming platform
  • Link to Electronic Press Kit (EPK) if applicable
  • Acknowledgement that you or your band have at least fifty (50) minutes of 100% original music to perform *
  • Main Booking contact for yourself & your band – First & Last Name
  • Main Booking Contact Phone Number
  • Main Booking Contact Email

THANK YOU for your interest and understanding.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL new artists/bands MUST submit their interest in performing at the Festival via this online submission and during the allotted time period in order to be considered for Mile of Music. All artists/bands must also have at least fifty (50) minutes of original music to perform. Absolutely no covers allowed, as we are proud to be a music festival started for the express & exclusive purpose to showcase your original works!

  • Scott Stueber says:

    I have a solo debut acoustic album just released, it’s on Spotify and iTunes, however I do not deal with social media, so I don’t have a Facebook account or a Twitter account but I really want to sign up as a new artist come November 1st… Any way for me around this?? Thank you for your time and consideration.

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hey Scott! Thanks for reaching out. You should be able to just put N/A in the social media categories on the form. Thank you!

  • Played the mile as Ifdakars drummer a bunch until last year. Moved on to my own creative endeavor The Jake Deringer Project. Only a year old and were a force everyone’s about to hear of. Hope to get in contact with the mile and be a part of it for years to come. Thank you

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hey! Since this is a different project than Ifdakar, you’d definitely fit the new artist criteria, so we’d encourage you to submit on November 1. Thanks a bunch!

  • Dawn says:

    Hi! Is there a rough idea of the time the link will be posted?

  • Jake Vanevenhoven says:

    What time do submissions open on Nov 1st?

  • Trouvaille is up early, makin’ original, groovy music here in Appleton, formerly members of the Strip Club Band and up early, lookin’ for the link, cuz this is our fifth year applyin’!

  • Keith Beatty says:

    Can you please direct me to the submission form? I have the app and I cannot find where to submit for festival! Please and thank you

  • mike alvarez says:

    when will the link be added for submissions

  • Tatum Ellis says:

    Will we receive a confirmation email after submitting?

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Great question! I don’t believe so. It should say “Your responses were successfully submitted.” I see your submission in our list of responses! Thank you. -Kim

  • Andrew says:

    Any chance we can use a link to a Facebook video if we don’t have much on YouTube?

  • Kanin says:

    Is it really closed already? I tried the link and it says closed.

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hi Kanin! Yes, we reached our submission limit in less than two hours. We are completely blown away! Thank you for reaching out.

  • B says:

    Submissions filled brutally fast. Less than 2 hours?

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hi! Thanks for reaching out. We are blown away, too, as this was definitely the fastest we’ve ever reached our submission limit.

  • Mike says:

    Refreshed the site since 6am, had to leave for work at 10am, first chance I get and its already filled?!?!

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hi Mike! Thanks for reaching out. We are sorry to share that we have already reached our submission limit. We can’t believe it! Next year, we plan to be more specific about when the form will go live (as long as technology is on our side — we had a small glitch that had the form go out right after 10am). We did have to publish the page manually so people didn’t sneak in ahead of time. We appreciate your feedback!

  • Dawn Parizek says:

    I’m wondering if I will receive a confirmation email if my submission was received.

  • Jeff Lord says:

    Wow – the submission window lasted less than a day 🙁 is there any way to get on a waiting list if spots open up?

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hi! Yes, it closed way more quickly than we ever anticipated. If we do open up a wait list of any sort, we will post about it here and on our social feeds!

  • Jennifer says:

    Is there a waiting list for new submissions? I have a friend, Emily Angell from New York who is really interested in performing at Mile of Music next year. Sadly she wasn’t able to get her submission in before it filled up. I’d love to see her Rock Appleton

    • Mile of Music Festival says:

      Hey Jennifer! At this time, we don’t have a waitlist, but that may change…so we encourage you to stay tuned to our website and social media!
