Gig Fair

KICKSTART THE RETURN OF LIVE BLUEGRASS MUSIC!

IBMA’s Gig Fair, a rare meet-and-greet opportunity in the midst of a hectic and fast-paced music industry event, serves as an organized information exchange for emerging artists and event producers. We envision the Gig Fair as a first step in building business relationships. It has become one of the most popular industry events at IBMA World of Bluegrass!

How It Works

  • Each talent buyer will have a station at the Gig Fair with 15 five-minute slots to meet with artists and a one-minute break between each meeting.
  • Each artist may sign up for a total of 10 meeting slots with talent buyers. Artists may not sign up for more than one meeting with a single talent buyer.
  • All time slots are first come, first served, however Official Showcase Artists are given a priority access period of 48 hours.
  • Each artist is encouraged to bring business cards, one-sheeters, and other promotional materials for their act. Artists may bring complete promo kits to give to talent buyers upon request.
