Hey, Bands: Submit to the 6th Annual Mission Creek Oakland Festival

Organizers of the Mission Creek Oakland Music & Arts Festival are gearing up for another big year — and they're looking for bands to book. The sixth annual event will be a "jam-packed, ... multidisciplinary arts festival taking place in venues, both traditional and non-traditional," throughout the greater Oakland area, according to a press release. Although the festival formerly consisted of dozens of events spread throughout the month of September, this year's iteration will be scaled back to a more manageable ten days, from September 5-13. And while past festivals have been somewhat limited in genre, this year's MCO promises "a cross section of the vibrant cultural ecosystem which has emerged and established Oakland as a place where art and artists can flourish." Okay then!  

MCO is accepting submissions through May 31 (priority screening is May 3), so "artists are encouraged to apply early for this year’s limited number of performance slots. Initial offers will be made in mid-May and the final line up will be announced in July." Organizers are also looking for volunteers. Find more info here
