The HomeGrown Live Music Festival is happening on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
Following last year’s successful but scaled-back festival (and a small virtual festival in 2021), the HomeGrown Live board of directors is pleased to announce that the 2023 HomeGrown Live Music Festival will be returning in its full form. It’s also our 15th anniversary!
The HomeGrown Live Music Festival is about encouraging, developing, and celebrating local live music while raising funds for Joe’s M.I.L.L. to help nurture the love of making music. Following several challenging years for Kingston’s music economy that saw the permanent closure of some live music venues, and the hiatus of live music altogether, we want to celebrate the richness and diversity of local music that we are tremendously privileged to still have in Kingston.
Call for Submissions
While the complete list of participating live music venues for 2023’s festival is still being finalized, performer applications are open now until March 8, 2023.
Kingston-based bands and artists wishing to volunteer a live performance for this year’s festival can now apply online here.
We can’t wait to see you on May 6!
