The O+ Festival is a celebration of art, music and wellness that creates a bridge to access health care for its participating artists/musicians. O+ fosters complete physical, mental and social well-being by connecting musicians and visual artists directly with a coalition of healthcare and wellness providers/resources in a shared vision to nurture the individual and the community.
O+ POUGHKEEPSIE is now accepting submissions for its 2018 festival (August 3 & 4, 2018). For the 2018 O+ Poughkeepsie Festival, our focus will be on Buskers - outdoor acoustic and spoken word performers. In addition, though, we are welcoming submissions from all musical genres and bands, particularly to fill our culminating performance on the main stage.
ACCEPTED submissions will be invited to perform at this year’s festival in exchange for access to care in the O+ Artists’ Clinic (click HERE for detailed information on our mission and the health and wellness services provided at last years' festivals).
A note to O+ Music Alumni: if you played O+ POUGHKEEPSIE last year, we will happily review and consider your submission, but the music committee may give priority to submissions from musicians who have yet to perform at O+ POUGHKEEPSIE.
We eagerly anticipate your submissions! Positively,
The O+ POUGHKEEPSIE Music Committee
