Artist Submission

BIMF Friends and Artists,

We are always glad to take submissions from artists and there are many opportunities to perform at the Beaver Island Music Festival or at our other events. We select artists on originality, diversity, in multiple genres, and on desire to perform on Beaver Island.

Please note: Our annual submission deadline is December 1st.

In an effort to make the application process easier, you can now submit here! If you want to apply or know a group you’d love to see at the festival, you’ll find all the requirements to submit to BIMF below.

Submit Now

It is very important in our selection process that you include:

  • contact number
  • email
  • number of performing members that would be attending if selected
  • what kind of music you perform-genera
  • information about your group-brief bio
  • links and websites (CD is not necessary if you can provide links to samples of your music)

Please send press kits to: BIMF Selection Committee PO Box 23, Beaver Island, MI 49782 or email with questions.

Our committee makes all of their selections in January of each year. We select only one group from each genre. Note: No group can perform at the festival more than 2 years in a row so that we can continue to bring new talented musicians to Beaver Island. If your group is chosen to perform for this year’s festival you will be contacted by mid-February. We will try to have our final lineup posted no later than April.

If you are not selected this year please continue to submit for future years and remember that we have an open-mic session that is open to all performers during the festival.

We look forward to hearing from your group and wish you good luck for this year‘s selection!
