The Sound Off Live! application is for emerging musicians/bands interested in performing at one of our three festivals (Artscape, the Baltimore Book Festival and Light City). Sound Off Live! is a special event, which takes place in October, where emerging musicians/bands selected from the application process perform live in front of a panel of judges, to possibly earn a performance spot (concert stage performances) in one of our three festivals for the following year.
