Get a gig as an opening band at one of Premier Festivals’ summertime events! Here's your chance.

Artists can go to, and enter for a chance to win a spot at four of Premier Festivals’ summertime festivals!

Enter to win at one of Premier’s 3-day festivals - SpiritSong or KingsFest, or at one of Premier’s two Gospel festivals – JoyFest-Carowinds or JoyFest-Kings Dominion!

It’s as easy to enter as 1-2-3. Interested artists or groups should:

  1. Go to ! Here are the direct links:

2. Create your own Electronic Press Kit (EPK) with samples of your music, a bio, resume, photos and more!

3. Enter in the Premier Festival Talent Competition of your choice!

All the entries will be voted on by the general public, who will select the Top 5 Finalists. Then the winner for each competition will be selected by a panel of judges, who are Christian music industry professionals and artists. Winners will be notified by email at least a month before the festival.

 Each winning artist will win the spot as the opening act for the festival! In addition to performing on stage at the festival, the winner will be provided with hospitality (one meal per artist or band member) and the standard merchandise fee will be waived so that the selected artist keeps 100% of his/her merchandise sales.

For the two JoyFest competitions, the winning entry will also receive $500 in prize money!
