Lancaster’s vibrant and creative music community is an all-too-well kept secret, and we want to show it off with the second anual Tellus3City Fest! The first one was such a success, we’ve decided to host it every year. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions from local bands and musicians to perform. Singer-songwriter showcases, and rocking performances will show off the past, present, future, and the unusual of Lancaster.

If you didn’t attend last year’s festival, here’s a recap: three days, 55+ bands over four stages, great music, great people, and great food and drinks. Tellus3City Fest is all about local music and bringing back acts who haven’t played together in a while, as well as new configurations of longtime Lancaster musicians. This year we’re adding a few more things: continuous jam sessions, artists gallery, and a community art piece. We will also be having a few younger bands performing, looking towards the present and future music of this beautiful city.

Weekend passes and single day tickets will be available for purchase soon. We welcome submissions from all different genres, ages, and backgrounds – including performers under 21. To play in the City Fest you must be local to Lancaster County, available during the weekend of August 3rd-5th, and love music as much as we do!

Please send your submissions, including online samples of your music (Youtube, Soundcloud, Facebook, Spotify, etc…) and art (instagram, website, photos) to
