Off Country

Call for Artist Submissions

To celebrate the different genres and styles that are inspired by similar storytelling tradition as country music, Off-Country Music Series will run during Country Music Week (September 8 – 11, 2022) and feature live music from artists who primarily perform country music on the fringes: alt-country, Americana, roots, singer-songwriter, blues, rock, etc.

We are looking to showcase approximately 50 acts to perform in different venues along the Music Mile and surrounding venues in Calgary.


  • This is a paid performance opportunity.
  • The series will present emerging to more established acts.
  • The majority of programming will prioritize Calgary-based artists, but we welcome any artists outside of Calgary to apply!
  • This opportunity is for acts who can play a 45 min-1 hour set, with mostly original music.
  • Must have experience performing live.
  • Programming will include youth performances in all-ages venues.

Deadline to submit: Tuesday, August 2, 2022, 4:00pm MT
