globalFEST is a non-profit organization whose work is based on the belief that music can be a driving force toward a society that values cultural diversity as a source of unity rather than division. We pursue this by moving global music – from traditional to contemporary and the hybrids in between – to the center of the cultural conversation and the center of the performing arts field.
Please fill out this form to submit your band for globalFEST in January 2023.
globalFEST’s festival takes place each January and is one of North America’s most important global music events, attracting a large number of music industry professionals, members of the press and music fans. Following participation at gF, artists have gone on to tour North America at hundreds of theaters, events and festivals across the country and around the world. Tours and cultural exchanges, as well as features and articles, that result from participating at globalFEST have built an ever-widening audience for global music and, by extension, an increase in international cooperation and collaboration.
For our 20TH FESTIVAL, we are looking forward to returning to an in-person celebration. The health and safety of participants as our top priority. We acknowledge that, in this unprecedented time, things may change rapidly and we may have to shift plans.

Artists are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and visas. globalFEST provides a modest reimbursement towards some expenses. gF partner Tamizdat Artist Services offers gF artists low-cost visa application services. We suggest starting the visa process as soon as you confirm participation to avoid having to pay additional premium processing costs.
