2017 Entertainment Submission Form

Would you like to be a part of the 2017 Dublin Irish Festival? Submit your band before November 1, 2016

The Festival receives hundreds of applications this year but we are able to only book approximately 80 acts per year. Of those, many spots are already committed to our local acts who will continue to showcase as we have for the last 29 years.

If you are interested in submitting your band for consideration, please fill out this form. Please note, there is a 20MB limit on files that can be uploaded.

Artists that we are not familiar with or have not seen previously in other venues are not likely to be chosen, but there is always a chance that an unknown act will be booked based on their submission. We hope to have the majority of our acts booked by early 2017 and you will probably hear from us around that time if not sooner.

Fill out my online form.
