For the past 32 years, Musikfest has offered bands from around the world the opportunity to perform their music to over a million attendees annually and share the stage with the likes of Ray Charles, The Beach Boys, Maroon 5, MGMT, Stone Temple Pilots, and Sublime. The 10-day non-stop music festival takes place each summer on 14 different stages in Bethlehem, PA – and for many artists, adding Musikfest to their resume is just the boost they need to take their careers to the next level. Check out what these four Sonicbids artists are up to now after playing Musikfest earlier this year, and then apply by March 2, 2015 for your chance to be a part of next year's festival!
Hometown: Kent, OH
Sound: Indie folk groove with a contemporary, modern feel
Success Story: Admittedly, The Speedbumps were already off to a good start prior to Musikfest – they were named ASA winners in the Adult Alternative category for "Montreal," a song off of their newest album, The Harbors We Seek. In addition to Musikfest, The Speedbumps have booked a ton of gigs through Sonicbids such as SXSW, CMJ, and Canadian Music Week.
Apply to play Musikfest 2015 by November 1, 2014 to receive a discounted submission fee.
