Apply To Play

Thank you for your interest in performing at CMA Fest 2024. Proceeds from the festival go directly to help enrich and sustain music education programs all across the country through CMA’s nonprofit arm, the CMA Foundation.
Providing sustainable music education programs is a mission we can all be proud of. And, it works. Thanks to the generosity of each artist who donate their time to play CMA Fest, a portion of net proceeds are donated to support the CMA Foundation’s mission. Since 2006, the CMA Foundation has invested more than $29 million in music education to ensure every child has the opportunity to participate in music.

Artist submissions are now closed for daytime stages. All submissions will be reviewed, and everyone will be notified in April.

Applications to perform at CMA Fest each year are always free.
If you believe you have been contacted by a scammer, please notify CMA here: Thank you.
