Bands at NAMM
NAMM hosts several live music venues at The NAMM Show and Summer NAMM. The artists who play these venues are curated from submissions through our Bands at NAMM program.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Summer NAMM, scheduled for July 9–11 in Nashville has been canceled. The industry's mid-summer gathering will return to Nashville Music City Center, July 15–17, 2021.
Bands at NAMM submissions open months before each show, at which point our submission site becomes live and available. The exact submission dates will be released via NAMM’s website and social media outlets (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). All artists are welcome and encouraged to submit their music for consideration by building an artist profile via bands.namm.org.
All submissions received will be reviewed by NAMM’s Bands at NAMM Selection Committee. The Committee will select artists to perform at each of the Bands at NAMM venues. All submitting artists will be notified regarding their performance status prior to each show. Visas can be provided for international artists if they are selected. Bands at NAMM performers are not compensated monetarily.
Please note that NAMM receives thousands of performance requests annually and there are limited time slots available. If you are not selected to perform at a particular show, we encourage you to submit again in the future.
