Access Film Music Private Showcase
at Folk Alliance International Conference
February 13 - 17, 2019
Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel
Montréal, Québec, Canada

This year, Access Film Music will be hosting 4 Private Showcase Rooms and co-hosting the Access Conscious Alliance Rocky Mountain Suite from Wednesday, February 13 through the wee hours of Sunday, February 17. If you're looking for performance opportunities during the conference, read on. They usually sell-out quickly, so act fast if you're interested.

We're hosting 4 acoustic Private Guerrilla Showcase rooms plus an amplified suite, with different rooms dedicated to different purposes -- Solos, Groups, In-the-Rounds and Longer Sets -- Each will be receiving their own dedicated room. We feel this approach offers artists choices that better help them accomplish their goals for the conference. Towards the end of the scheduling process, if we have open slots available, we may alter the offerings for the remaining spaces, but everyone who signs up through this page remains confirmed and their schedules will not be changed.
