Band Booking


We get tons of emails asking how artists and bands can be invited to play at the Summer Meltdown. Here is some basic information on sending artist submissions to Summer Meltdown. Due to our mailbox exploding with mail in past years, we no longer accept band press kits in the traditional snail mail format. Please read the questions below starting with Step 1.

Step 1:

Ask yourself the following questions:
1. Can your band draw at least 250 people in at least TWO Northwest local venues?

2. Can your band draw fans that would want to spend 2-3 days camping out in the woods with a very diverse group of people?

3. Is your band touring?
We preferably like to work with bands that are making a strong effort to tour around the NW, such as Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah and Colorado.

If you answered YES to at all of these questions then you should fill out the form below. Due to the large volume of emails we get, we cannot guarantee you a response back. Another angle to approach is getting your band booked at the Wild Buffalo House of Music in Bellingham, WA. It’s our favorite place to see shows and many of the Meltdown staff work here. If you can pack the place, you’re certain to be on our radar of candidates for the coming year.

Step 2:

Ask Yourself the questions above again. Seriously
