We have been closely monitoring developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to keep our artists, guests, hosts and employees safe during this time, we’ve cancelled all upcoming Sofar shows for the foreseeable future. We are still accepting and reviewing artist applications, however we will not be in touch for any scheduling until it is safe to do so.
Applying to perform
We track all of our artist performance submissions through our online form, and booking applications go directly to the listening team in each of the cities you’ve specified.
The most important part of the application is the live video—as most events are unplugged, an acoustic or stripped-back performance video helps those local teams envision how your set will work in our unique venues.

Common submission errors
Please note that we're unable to alter any submissions after they've been submitted, so if there's a mistake in your application please resubmit.
Start and end dates must be in the future
After selecting the cities you’d like to play in, you'll be asked to enter your requested dates or date range of availability in (MM/DD/YYYY) format for each city. Both requested dates must be at least one day in the future.
Correct URL formatting is required when you submit your portfolio and media links. You'll need to start with http://www. before your links for them to be be accepted.
