The Labor Day Weekend Music Festival is a series of three family-friendly musical concerts to be held at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC, August 31 - September 2, 2018. The festival showcases the diversity of musical genres and styles performed in DC and the surrounding area, and will be presented free to the public.

Applicants must be aged 18 or older and reside in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area (50 mile radius of Washington, DC); preference will be given to those artists residing in Washington, DC. All applications will be panel-reviewed for artistic quality/musicianship, stage presence/audience engagement, and overall appropriateness as part of the curation process for the festival. Selected artists will receive an honorarium, up to $1,000 for solo artists and up to $7,500 for groups, and will be expected to perform approximately 45 minutes of live music.
