OK, gang, it’s that time of year when the most organized among you are already prepared to submit an application to play at the 2018 AthFest Music & Arts Festival. And, conveniently, applications are now being accepted.

As usual, it’s a pretty painless procedure. Basically, all you need is a simple electronic or physical press kit and some recorded music. All Georgia-based artists may mail in applications for no submission fee, but out-of-state bands must pay $15 to apply this way. However, if you choose to submit electronically, there is a $5 fee for Georgia artists and a $10 fee for all others.

You can find application forms, appropriate links and more information on the AthFest site.

The deadline for submissions is Apr. 1. This year’s AthFest happens June 22–24.
