Presenter & DJ Showcase


Thursday Night will be FARM’s fourth annual Presenter & DJ Showcase

For 2017 this FARM Showcase will once again include both Presenters (Venues) & DJs.  It is the desire of the FARM Board of Directors to honor both Presenters & Folk DJs by nominating and inviting presenters and DJs to present a musician at this showcase.

Artists to be presented will be listed here in September, 2017

the Selection Process

  • The FARM Board of Directors will invite Presenters and DJs to present a musician at the showcase.
  • The showcase coordinators (names and contact info is listed below) will compile a list of artists who would like to be considered. However, Presenters & DJs are not required to select from this list.
  • Because we’re trying to raise awareness of FARM, Presenters & DJs are welcome to recruit an artist who they believe could benefit from the experience and exposure – preferably one who has never attended FARM.
  • The performer may not have performed in a FARM Official Showcase nor a FARM DJ / Venue Showcase in 2015 or 2016.
  • Selected artists MUST register for the entire conference. (Remember that registration is discounted for all first-timers.)

Contact one of our coordinators if you are interested in performing in this showcase, or hosting an artist in this showcase.
