Acoustic(ish) sets. Equipment is not provided -- plan accordingly.

Applications have closed. 


All performances are 60 minute sets. We will accommodate as many requests as available porch space allows. 


There will likely be more bands interested in participating than we have room to accommodate. We apologize. There will be a set number of open spaces available.


Performances are acoustic or near-acoustic. Think dozens of Tiny Desk Concerts. The goal is to be heard to the sidewalk, not down the street. Other bands are nearby, so please be respectful.


​Electricity will be provided by the porch host(s) for your use. NO OTHER EQUIPMENT WILL BE PROVIDED. You will need to bring your own everything, and creatively transport it from however far away you had to park.


PARKING WILL BE DIFFICULT. Arrive early and be prepared to walk (plan equipment accordingly). You will NOT be able to park in front of your porch. Be prepared.


Compensation is via tips. A significant, visible tip tub will be present at each porch. Remember to claim your tips. Forgetting is forfeiting. Once the next band begins to perform, all tips left in the jar are theirs! Don't forget to check your tip jar.


Bands are welcome to sell CDs/swag during your performance. You'll need to organize staffing and setup for that. You can post your Venmo, etc., at your porch to simply tipping.


Any special requests should be included with the application. We will do our best to accommodate. Late requests may need to be denied. Please understand that one small change for you means numerous other things likely must change, effecting others.


Please DO NOT ASK for access to your porch host's home. No exceptions. Porta-potties are located throughout the festival. 


To keep this event viable, remember that it is an all-ages, alcohol-free event. Please respect that aspect of the event as thoroughly as all others.
