NYSMusic Staff Festival Submission
Writer / Photographer, please complete this form for all festivals you plan / want to cover, or already did cover (post hoc), this way we can keep an accurate record of ALL the shows we have covered.

General Submission Guidelines:

DO NOT submit a festival request before the show is officially announced.

Editorial staff will assign a writer and or photographer to each festival.

IF your decision to cover a festival demands that you know you will be given the assignment (e.g. travel, hotels, other conflicts, etc.) please note this when submitting and ask for an early decision and reach out to the appropriate editor / contact for your area.

DEFAULT liaison between NYS Music and the band / venue / media / PR contact is always the writer. In absence of a writer, the photographer will act as liaison. In both cases, initial contacts to band / venue / media / PR contact need to have an editor (using his / her @nysmusic email address) cc'd on the email.

OTHER: Reach out to an editor or crowd source your questions, comments, concerns, or queries about this form and related process.

PROTIP: Bookmark this link in your browser. If the link changes for some reason, we will let you know.

DO NOT HESITATE TO SUBMIT A FESTIVAL REQUEST IF SOMEONE ELSE ALREADY HAS. FESTIVALS ARE NOT ASSIGNED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS.

ONE MORE THING: The spreadsheet to view the requests / assignments will be added to your google drive in the "shared" folder once you have provided the gmail address you wish to be associated with this document. If you have not done so, you can do that here >

REMEMBER, you must be signed into the gmail account you provided in order to use filters / sorting / search features. If you have not provided a gmail account, or are somewhere without access to your gmail account, you can still view the spreadsheet from any browser without being signed in to google, but it will be more cumbersome to navigate, although not impossible. The link to view the spreadsheet is here >
