Sign up to participate in the 2021 Anchorage Virtual Open Mic by submitting a two-song (up to 8 minutes) video recording. Be creative - you can wear a costume, find a cool location for your performance, take Folk back out of the box! Both Ears Live Sound will be stitching these performances together for presentation at the Virtual Open Mic debut!

We encourage you to be mindful of COVID-19 safety protocols if performing with others.

Remember - no profanity and no politics.

All submissions due by December 15, 2020. One submission per person/group of performers please.

Visit the online form to submit your performance.


Please review these Audio-Video Guidelines for submitting a video that provides optimal audio and visual results. These were developed and graciously shared here with guidance from Lucy Peckham of Both Ears Live Sound.

It is essential that your recording heeds these suggestions in order to be included in our Virtual Festival.

Anchorage Folk Festival reserves the right to request a re-recording or reject any submission that does not follow these guidelines.
