Applications to perform at the 12th annual Homegrown Live Music Festival are open until March 15!
Wow! Even after 11 years, we are still in awe of how amazing this music scene is. Even with all the incredible performers and volunteers, we can’t do it without live music lovers, and you came out in record numbers this year. The Kingston music scene reaps the benefits, but most importantly, so does The Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library.
Thank you, Kingston. We’ll see you next year!
Our incredible team of volunteer venue coordinators have been hard at work putting together this year’s line up – our biggest yet! 15 venues and over 130 performances.
Check out the list and start planning!
Each year at Homegrown Live, we host roughly 90 local acts on 10 – 12 stages in the downtown area. We’ve raised over $100,000 for the Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Library, and on Saturday, May 4, we’re going to do it again!
To apply to play at this year’s festival, please fill out an application. We’ll announce our lineup in early April.
Thank you to the 400 volunteer musicians, door people, venues, sponsors, partners, and audiences. All the new venues worked out really well. The street parade was a special bonus and it was great fun. Overall we raised $12,483.00 for Joe’s MILL just a little shy of our record revenue from last year. Stay tuned for details regarding a special 10th Anniversary event (film screening, concerts, jams, workshops, and beerfest) Nov 8-10, 2018 called “Plant the Seeds”
