Artscape 2019: In the Neighborhood Application
Baltimore-based businesses who can offer festivalgoers an exceptional Artscape experience can submit an application to participate in the festival. Experiences with an Artscape “hook” or visual/performing arts related content are required.


Applications for emerging musicians/bands interested in performing at one of our 2019 festivals are now closed. If you are an emerging musician/band and are interested in applying to perform at one of our 2020 festivals, please visit here after May 15, 2019 to submit an application. 

The Sound Off Live! application is for emerging musicians/bands interested in performing at one of our three festivals (Artscape, Baltimore Book Festival and Light City). Sound Off Live! is a special event, which takes place in October, where emerging musicians/bands selected from the application process perform live in front of a panel of judges, to possibly earn a performance spot (concert stage performances) in one of our three festivals for the following year.
