If you are an artist or have a band that wants to play Erin Feis you may submit a Press Kit by mail to Erin Feis, P.O. Box 117, Peoria, IL 61650 or an Electronic Press Kit (EPK) to email@example.com. We will acknowledge receipt of these, generally through an email confirmation. We start booking in November for the following year’s festival and try to complete our booking process by the end of March. If you have not heard from us by then, you can assume that we are not able to include you in our line-up.
The festival does not cover travel costs to and from Peoria, IL. These fees are part of the contract fee negotiations. Immigration, work permit and visa issues are the responsibility of the band but we will provide what help we can. Please understand that Erin Feis receives a ton of applications each year to perform at our festival. We book between 20-30 bands on average. Since our first festival, we have made it a policy to promote our local musicians and dancers and of course there are many more of those groups now than there were on August 30, 1981. We are honored to be considered by so many talented bands but are sad that we have to pass on so many.
