The Fairport Music festival attempts to offer a variety of the finest music available on the local, regional, and national levels. Selected acts will include “cover” and “original” bands as well as acoustic acts in various genres of music.

We receive hundreds of submissions for a minimal number of time slots. All submissions are reviewed but we only contact those who have been selected for the event—usually by June/July.

IMPORTANT: Please no additional phone calls or emails; the application is all that is needed. 

The date of the FMF is Saturday August 24th. The festival’s mission is to utilize 100% of the proceeds from the event to provide the Golisano Children’s Hospital with non-budgetary item support. To date, the Fairport Music Festival has donated nearly $3 million to the Golisano Children’s Hospital. Please keep this in mind in determining if our event is right for you. For your donated performance we provide: quality stage, sound, full backline equipment, promotion, and some tickets to the festival.

Thank you in advance for your interest in our event.

One great rock show can change the world.” —Dewey Finn
