2020 festival application

DUE DECEMBER 2, 2019 11:59PM CST


It is FREE to apply to the Omaha Under the Radar Festival! We accept applications from performers and creators of live, time-based arts. Every year, we receive between 150-300 applications and invite around 25 artists/groups to participate in the festival. The venues range from art galleries to clubs to concert halls. We want to present artists who take risks and believe in the power of grass-roots arts movements.
