EWOB 2015: Only two weeks remaining to apply!

Bluegrass musicians from all over the world, this is a reminder that about 2 weeks are left to submit your application for European World of Bluegrass 2015 in the Netherlands. Applications close on December 1, 2014

So, if you wish to take part in the largest bluegrass festival in Europe with 40 bands on stage, lots of picking and gigs in the area, all you have to do is download and complete the 2015 application formYour application and Band bio/info will be forwarded to the EWOB Festival Program Committee. Bands selected to perform at the EWOB Festival 2015 will be informed in January 2015.

But that is not all: Every year small acoustic performances are arranged near the EWOB Festival venue in the town of Voorthuizen, in restaurants or terraces. Therefore, in the form you should also indicate your interest in local gigs.

The same goes for the different workshops that each year are featured. These may include guitar, dobro, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass, vocals and songwriting but depend on the availability and willingness of musicians to share their passion with others. So don't forget to state if any member(s) of your band is willing to host (no fee is paid for hosting) or assist in a workshop.

Last but not least, keep in mind that EWOB festival is an acoustic festival, therefore only acoustic bluegrass or bluegrass-related music will be played: no backline will be available and only microphones will be used for both instruments and vocals. Selected bands will be scheduled for a 25 minute showcase. 

We are sure that you don't want to miss this great opportunity to showcase yourself. So, to make sure to join us next year, apply before December 1!
