Fort Reno 2018

Happy 50th Anniversary Fort Reno Summer Concerts!

Demo packages will be accepted for consideration from Monday April 9th until Monday April 30th. Late entries will not be considered for shows.

Please mail your submissions to:

Amanda MacKaye
Fort Reno Concert Series
645 S. Florida Street
Arlington, VA 22204

Here are the submission guidelines:

  • We still ask for physical music demos...cd, tape, and vinyl. Homemade copies are perfectly acceptable, but please provide more than one song. We don't book cover bands and ask that bands not play cover songs in their set. We don't accept EPK's.
  • Revel in the moment that you/your band can be more than a neat & tidy folder with papers in it. Just don’t forget to include your name and contact information.
  • We don't need press information or pictures (unless you want to draw something for the refrigerator gallery); lists of shows or bands you've played with.
  • Include the URL for your web presence if you have that (its fine if you don’t), so there is no need to print out that material.
  • The concert series strives to encourage kids to start bands and participate rather than just watch and consume, so please tell us the ages of your band members. We are dedicated to supporting the music life of Washington, DC. so only artists from this area are eligible for consideration. Currently that is defined as within the Capital Beltway. All music styles and people are encouraged and welcome, however from year to year the aim of the series may change and that can drive selections. If you are not familiar with the Fort Reno Concert Series, and are considering putting your hat in the ring, please note that all bands volunteer their time on the stage.

If you have any questions, just ask.
