For more than two decades, our volunteers have proven this beyond any doubt. Whether you are a seasoned returning volunteer or a new talent, join a stellar team of folks working to make World of Bluegrass a world-class music industry event!
In addition to Official Showcases, the IBMA offers a variety of opportunities and price points for agents, labels, artists, and corporate partners to sponsor showcases throughout the week.
The Songwriter Showcase is a coveted opportunity at the IBMA’s World of Bluegrass, where we shine a spotlight on ten selected songwriters (or songwriting teams).
Three exhibiting options allow you to tailor your engagement with over 12,000 World of Bluegrass attendees! Choose from full-week, Conference-only, or Festival-only options to engage with the best audiences for your business!
Proposals can be submitted by bluegrass and general music industry professionals. Proposals may be considered for the IBMA Business Conference OR for the Wide Open Bluegrass festival (Convention Center educational and workshop sessions, not stage performances).
