Performer Application Information

Online Application Process

  1. If you would like to perform at Zimfest 2018, please read this information before completing your application.
  2. Then complete and submit your performer application by February 28, 2018.
  3. You will receive a confirmation email that your application has been received.
  4. We will notify you in April with our decision about which applicants will be invited to perform. Proposed performance times will be sent to all selected performers before online registration opens.


Zimfest pays performers at the ticketed evening concerts a modest fee. Otherwise, performing at the festival is on a volunteer basis. Travel reimbursements—if any—will be limited and will not cover travel outside of the US. If possible, we will provide a small travel stipend to bands traveling within the US. Any travel stipends will be announced within 30 days of the end of the festival but should not be budgeted for.

Please Note: Non-US citizens traveling on a B-1 visa cannot be paid for performances, nor can they appear in any concert for which admission is charged.
