Arts & Venues Now Accepting Applications For Performances And Producer For The 2023 FIVE POINTS JAZZ FESTIVAL

Denver Arts & Venues has announced the 20th Five Points Jazz Festival on June 3, 2023, and is now accepting applications for 2023 performers and proposals for a festival producer.

"I was part of the very first Five Points Jazz Festival," said Ginger White, Denver Arts & Venues executive director, "and I am thrilled to see how this fantastic event has grown year over year, while still paying homage to Denver's Harlem of the West. We are excited to recruit new and veteran talent to help us make our 20th festival a success."

The festival producer will assist Arts & Venues with band and vendor coordination, road closures and other logistics, festival set-up and tear-down, recruiting and training volunteers, permitting, equipment rental, and other festival-related work. Interested applicants may submit a proposal through www.bidnetdirect.com (Solicitation Number 11083-2022).

Proposals will be accepted through Nov. 1, 2022, 10 a.m. MDT. Interested applicants are encouraged to attend a pre-proposal virtual meeting on Oct. 18, 2 p.m. MDT through Microsoft Teams to review and discuss the proposal terms and conditions. Attendees must register through Eventbrite to participate, and will receive information on how to join the virtual meeting after registration.

2023 performances will be one hour in length and performers will need to be on-site one hour prior to their performance time for load-in and sound check. The committee will accept musician applications through Dec. 31, 2022 and begin making decisions on festival lineup in January. A musician application in Spanish is also available.
