Please carefully read the terms about this competition before submitting to it (see below). If you have already submitted your information via, via email, or through the mail you still MUST register with Rawkzilla or you will not be considered for a slot. Sorry for any inconvenience and extra work! But we trust that this platform will make things super user-friendly for everyone.


Big Ticket Festival 2017 will pick 20 winners to play 15 slots at BTF 2017, stage/date/time TBD on one of these three days:

  • Thursday June 22

  • Saturday June 24

*If your band is chosen to play, each artist/band will need to pay the festival a performance fee of $175.

Big Ticket Festival will provide 3 judges on-site,  one band will be chosen from BTF and go onto the CFA National Talent Search, Final National Winner Round. (Final National CFA Winner is determined online. Final National CFA Winner plays all participating CFA Festivals for a paid slot in 2018)

Bands can bring their merch for set-up on the day they play. First $500 of merch sales waived, then 5% flat fee on sales over $500.
