Julia-Louis Dreyfest 2018: Promo #1

Here's the first promo video of the season for Julia Louis-Dreyfest 2018! Don't forget to get your submissions in by May 1st to be a part of the fun this August in downtown Billings, Montana! We are looking for musicians, comedians, poets, visual artists, and craftspeople! Before submitting, you should know a couple things about the fest:

1). Set times are 30 minutes for bands, with 5 minutes MAX for setup and tear down. Comedians and poets will receive information about their performance arrangements closer to the festival. Visual art is displayed in a variety of ways at the different venues depending on the type of art. Craftspeople will set up at this year's new event, the Dreyfest Bazaar-B-Que.

2). Traveling acts will receive at least $50 for gas and expenses (we will pay more as the budget permits). You will also have the opportunity to sell your merchandise. Julia Louis-Dreyfest is entirely not-for-profit, so local acts play for free to support the fest and venues provide their services free of charge. We realize that $50 is not truly enough to travel this far out of the way, but we also put a big emphasis on this being a really cool community event and would be stoked to have you as a part of it!

UPDATE: Submissions for all but craftspeople are closed. Please hit us up next year!

Looking to volunteer your time and labor? Please contact us!
