Artist Submission

Artist Submissions

Every early July since the inaugural Festival in 2001 - which featured some great performers in jazz, including Nancy Wilson, Chuck Findley, Eddie Daniels, Phil Woods and Jack Jones- the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival has brought together electrifying jazz artists and enthusiastic jazz audiences for a three or four-day celebration of jazz.
If you would like the opportunity to join this stellar cast of musicians at the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival, please adhere to the following guidelines when submitting materials for consideration.

*Artist submissions are accepted from December 1 - February 28
. Please note that you will need to re-submit materials for each year you wish to be considered, as space limitations prevent us from keeping submissions from previous years on file.
*Although our organization presents a number of events throughout the year, we only accept artist submissions through this channel for our annual Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival which occurs in July.
Who should apply: Both emerging and established artists will be considered for the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival, with a focus on established and regional artists. Please refer to the previous year's lineup for more specific information as to the type of artists who have been selected.
Please *mail submissions to:
Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival
3617 Astro Circle
Salt Lake City, UT 84109
Attn: Artist Submissions

Please Note: Due to the high volume of submissions received, we are unable to return materials submitted to us for consideration.

Artist Submission Status
We will contact you to confirm receipt of your submission ONLY in a reply to an email you to us at: notifying us that you have sent a submission package. If you do not receive an acknowledgement within three weeks of sending your submission, you may contact us at 801-277-9115.
Although we sincerely appreciate your interest in the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival, please be aware that the large volume of submissions received prohibits us from listening to or offering assessment and feedback on all submissions. Therefore, only those who are being considered for inclusion in the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival will be contacted - typically by mid-March. Please do not contact our office unless asked to do so, as the overwhelming demand for performance opportunities often precludes us from accepting or returning solicitation calls.
Thank you for complying with the aforementioned guidelines. We appreciate your dedication to jazz and are honored that you are interested in participating in the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival.
