Concerts and Playlist Considerations

Deadline Thur Dec 3/20, 5pm

This year to celebrate the holiday season, we are seeking artist submissions for 2 options:

1) Online Concert

We'll be assembling a special concert(s) of various artists that will be aired online in mid-December. If selected, your video must be provided to us by December 14/20.

Your submission for this option is an audio recording (demo quality ok) of one holiday, winter or seasonally-themed song you'd like to have included in the concert.
Note - We do not want to use previously-released videos nor 'official music videos'. We are looking for live performance-style options.

If selected, you'll film and submit a new video of yourself performing a holiday-themed song (either original or Public Domain) for inclusion in the specials. (Contemporary covers can't be considered due to licensing restrictions.) A max of one song per artist will be included in the concert, with accepted artists receiving an honorarium of $150* for their inclusion. Selected artists will grant us non-exclusive permission for our usage on YouTube, social media accounts, website, etc.

Please follow all current social distancing protocols and health recommendations for video filming.

*As this opportunity is intended to SaskMusic members, non-members who are selected for this opportunity will receive an honorarium of $110 plus a 1-year Individual SaskMusic membership.

2) Playlists Our annual holiday playlists are back! Submit your release-ready song(s) that are holiday, winter, or seasonally-themed for playlist consideration (up to 2 songs per artist). Songs selected will be added to our website, Spotify, and/or YouTube holiday playlists for the public to enjoy throughout December. Originals, covers, and traditional music is all fine to submit.

Submit for both through this link: https://saskmusic.wufoo.com/forms/zh2wxwh0zrftp2/


Both initiatives will be promoted within Saskatchewan and across Canada to market music that's made in Saskatchewan. These opportunities are directed to professional, Saskatchewan-identifying artists of all genres and all genders. Please note we intend these to reach an all-ages audience, so please keep family-friendly language (lyrics) in mind. If you have any questions, please send them to info@saskmusic.org.
