A Spokesperson for the Festival said “We are big fans of all things carnie; in articular we’re looking for acts that are bold, energetic, charismatic, and 100% fun. You need to be one-of-a-kind, out-of-the-ordinary with your own original material/act and a unique vibe.
We are especially interested in working with musicians, performers, and entertainers from underrepresented backgrounds including people from Black, Brown, Asian (South, East, Middle-East), LGBTQ+, and disabled communities. We are also dedicated to producing an event in which at least 50% of the performers are female or identify as female.
