This amazing community stage began as an event for the FRFF camping community, a Thursday night campgrounds space curated by Tribal Mischief Productions with tech support by Scotten Jones. On behalf of Ethan, Jake, and Scott, thank you for an amazing run, we will remember those special evenings for the rest of our lives. More info on this year’s TNM Stage will be posted.

Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Booking/Showcasing Guideline
We are NOT accepting any FEATURE artist submissions this year. Our 2022 booking plans will focus on all the artists contracted originally for 2020 and/or planned on for 2021 who we could not invite. We will have an updated submission procedure for next year.
Emerging Artist Showcase Information
The Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase is returning in 2022 and is open to all performers who will not be appearing in any other capacity including sideperson or special guest in the current year. This is a two song or ten-minute spot on our Main Stage on Friday afternoon. We will have between 20 and 24 showcase spots this year. We plan to open submissions by May 1. Deadline to apply is June 1. See submission LINK below.
There is a $20 Showcase application fee.
Selected artists appear in the program book, are assisted by our excellent stage & sound crew and may have their mailing list and merch in our sales tent. While there is no compensation for this showcase, artists receive full admission, on-site camping and meals for the entire festival plus one guest pass per act. The showcase is not a contest. However, the audience is surveyed as to which three showcase artists they wish to see return to the Most Wanted Song Swap (MWSS) at FRFF the following year. Three to four artists are invited to return.
The showcase and song swap are an opportunity to be seen and heard in a large amphitheater setting with hundreds of folk fans, presenters, agents, record labels and media in attendance. A committee of 3 music professionals review submissions and make selections. The only criteria are high quality performances of interesting, well-crafted, acoustic based material. It need not be original.
All showcase applicants will be notified no later than June 15. More details on production, merchandise, camping will be sent to all selected artists.
