Music Submissions

Thank you to all the acts who submitted music for the 2023 Glasgow Jazz Festival – we received over 500 entries which is a fantastic response. Music Submissions are now closed for this year – we will be in touch only if we wish to discuss further – good luck!

We are always on the lookout for new artists and talent. At Glasgow Jazz Festival, we are committed to showcase artists from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives and ensure that our events represent the audiences and communities we are part of. We therefore welcome submissions regardless of age, race, disabilities, and religious belief, as well as other protected and non-protected characteristics.

If you would like to be considered to play the festival, please send an email with the following:

‘Music Submission – band/artist name’ in the header.
A short bio – max 500 words.
A link to a live performance video (no attachments please).
Your band/artist website and social media links.
Any other live dates you are playing in the UK this summer.
Your contact details, location and number of band members.

Please DO NOT send music files / MP3’s / video files to this address – only links will be accepted. Please also note that we DO NOT accept submissions via other communication methods including social media. We will be in touch ONLY if we are able to make an offer and we are unable to provide feedback on your submission.
