What band would not want to add a festival gig to their summer schedule this June? Everyday we receive many emails from bands aspiring to play on the mountaintop stage at ACE Adventure Resort. So many of these acts are super talented so we wanted to open the door and create a path to Mountain Music Festival. This year we will be hosting an official Mountain Music Festival pre-party at The V Club in Huntington, WV on April 29th. We want your band to perform and maybe just maybe get a spot on the Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company Lake Stage at MMFest 2017.
Here’s how it works. Starting today we will be accepting electronic press kits (EPK) through the band submission portal on the Contact Us page HERE. If you have submitted your EPK to us before you will need to submit again to be considered for this contest. We will look at band submissions received between February 14th and February 28th to select 15 bands that will be entered into the voting process.
During the month of March these top 15 bands will have the chance to empower their fans to vote for them and progress down the path to Mountain Music Festival. On March 31st the five bands with the most votes will move on to perform at The V Club pre-party on April 29th. If you are submitting your band please keep in mind that this pre-party show will be an unpaid gig. That night we will have tons of festival swag plus we will be doing ticket giveaways and The Greenbrier Valley Brewing Company will be keeping the cold beer flowing. Come out and support your favorite band by voting for them that night in Huntington.
After the show we will open up online voting for two weeks to select the winning band. On May 14th the band with the most votes will be awarded a paid slot to perform during Mountain Music Festival this June 1st, 2nd & 3rd. Here are a few more things to keep in mind if your band is thinking about hitting the path the Mountain Music Festival. Your group must have released an album, demo or some sort of recorded music. You will also need to provide a good quality video of your band performing (not shaking IPhone footage in a dark club). We can’t wait to see what great bands are out there and which one will make it down the path to Mountain Music Festival!
