submission deadline is in the rearview mirror.

The Pleasantville Music Festival is New York's Backyard Jam. Every year, we look for bands from all over New York's Backyard and beyond. Just so happens that this year's submission period has come to an end.

if you submitted, awesome!

You should have received an automatic confirmation email acknowledging your submission. Because we get hundreds of submissions and only have a handful of spots available, we cannot contact everyone personally or entertain "how's it going" inquiries. The review process takes months, so we will be busy. If we are interested, we will contact you and talk about where you might fit into our line-up. 

If you missed the deadline,
there's always next year.

Subscribe to our mailing list and follow us on the socials to find out when submission opens up for 2020. 

That's all, folks. 

This process is the only way to get a chance to play the Festival. As volunteers, we do not take phone calls or private inquiries. 

actually, it’s not all.
