Julia Louis-Dreyfest 2019 Submission Video

Video by Cory Young


The time is upon us! Billings, MT’s premier DIY fest is in its 7th year running. We are looking for musicians, comedians, poets, visual artists, and craftspeople for this year’s fest, and will be accepting submissions until March 1. Before submitting, you should know a couple things about Dreyfest:

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! You will also have the chance to sell your wares at the festival.
