Dawson City Music Festival - Performance Opportunity

Dawson City Music Festival - Performance Opportunity

July 19-21, 2019 in Dawson City, YK

Deadline: January 18, 2019

The first Dawson City Music Festival took place in 1979. It was an intimate, two-day affair among friends, comprising a jam session on a West Dawson farm and a dance at Diamond Tooth Gertie’s. Quickly realizing that the Festival was too good a secret to keep, an enterprising band of local volunteers incorporated the Dawson City Music Festival Association in 1980, and received charitable status in 1986.

Since then, the event Vancouver’s Georgia Straight dubbed as “Canada’s tiny, perfect Festival” has developed a reputation as one of the nation’s premiere musical events, but its strengths have remained the same: unparalleled intimacy, grassroots spirit, fabulous Klondike hospitality, and the best concerts North of 60!

Performer applications are now being accepted for the 41st annual Dawson City Music Festival, taking place July 19th – 21st, 2019. Please be aware there is a $10.00 application processing fee* through Paypal after filling out the online form.
