Mid West Music Fest (MWMF) is calling on musicians to submit their music. Submissions will be taken over two two-week periods for two rounds of Songs of Summer, an online original performance contest. The first submission period is July 8 to July 20. Artists may submit videos in one of three categories: solo/singer-songwriter, band, or 18 and under (solo or band). The music committee will narrow the entries down to five performances to be judged by the larger audience of followers of MWMF. A winner will be chosen for each category for each round and the winners will perform a live-streamed set on either August 4 or August 25. All artists will receive a stipend and a percentage of donations received during the performance.
MWMF encourages artists who have never played MWMF before (with the exception of the 18 under category) to apply. Organizers want to continue to introduce new artists making original music to the MWMF audience and also the greater public.
Organizers also highly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQ artists to apply. A core value of MWMF is to respect the dignity of every person, regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation or social status
