Showcase Opportunity: IBMA Bluegrass Ramble

Showcase Opportunity: IBMA Bluegrass Ramble

Virtual-Only Official Showcases available.

Deadline: April 30, 2021

Official Showcases are the premier platform for new bluegrass music during IBMA World of Bluegrass.  Selected acts will have the opportunity to perform on multiple stages during the IBMA Bluegrass Ramble and IBMA Business Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Given the impacts of the pandemic, the IBMA Showcase Selection Committee will be selecting up to 10 Virtual-Only Official Showcase acts in addition to the typical 30 in-person acts. Preference for Virtual-Only Official Showcases will be given to international acts, who face continued barriers to travel.

Emerging acts, established acts with new music or personnel, and bluegrass legends come together to create a well-rounded music experience. All bluegrass acts, including artists with disabilities, artists who are black, indigenous, or people of color (BIPOC), and those who identify as LGBTQ are encouraged to apply!

The deadline to apply is April 30.
