Artist Home Booking is now accepting submissions for next year's Doe Bay Fest (happening Aug 8-11 on Orcas Island). You must submit your info by April 1, 2013, and you'll be notified no later than June 1, 2013. You can find out more info and put in your application here.

Here are some tips, according to the website:


2. Do not send multiple emails. It’s annoying

3. Do not bypass the submission process by trying to contact the resort staff or individuals at Artist Home. Again, it’s annoying and like #1 and #2, will actually hurt your chances more than help it.

4. Understand that we received almost 1,000 submissions last year and expect a lot more this year, which is a lot considering we can only host 20 or so artists. Each year we have to sadly turn down hundreds of artists that we actually REALLY like. So if we can’t send you an invitation to play, please keep trying next year with the knowledge that main stage bands do not repeat year after year at Doe Bay Fest (well except for that one band).

I want to second that attachments rule. That's just a good rule for life. Attachments are the worst.
