We’re really excited about this line-up of diverse acts from all over the U.S. and Canada!
We’d like to thank our excellent Official Showcase Coordinator (and FARM Board President), Smitty Smith for taking the reins of this difficult job and mega gratitude to our fabulous showcase judges who gave of their time freely to listen to the record number of wonderful artists who submitted this year. Our judges will tell you it’s no easy task and the scores are often very close so even if you weren’t awarded a showcase this year, (as Smitty put it so eloquently) “your music has already been heard by a host of DJs and small venue operators and other music industry types (our judges). You are now on their radar. And most, if not all, of our judges will be at the conference. You’ve got a head start!“
More information will be posted about our official showcase artists on our website and social media in the coming weeks. For now you can check out this cool spotify playlist featuring this year’s artists and alternates.
