Thanks to all 300+ who submitted. We listened to some to incredibly good music and very talented artists. Not every one was a good fit for the festival, but all were appreciated. Trying to choose 18 or 19 artists out of that many is a delightful challenge.

Digital submissions accepted here, but preferably via Dropbox (use Reviews within last 2 years appreciated. Please highlight 2-3 tracks that best represent artist's work. If VTF has an appropriate venue opening, we will submit a detailed offer by email, so please include all relevant contact information. It is not necessary to confirm receipt of hard copy/electronic copy. Booking for Roots on the River headline artists occurs primarily from November to January; for supporting artists, from January through March. For all other venues we book all year long and try to book 6-12 months in advance. If a particular artist catches our fancy, we may book on short notice, so keep that in mind if you are routing through southeastern Vermont anytime.
