A message from Founder Aaron Williams:
Hello fellow musicians and artists,
Thank you very much for your interest in performing this year’s Homegrown Arts and Music Festival. Submissions are back open for Chicagoland’s biggest celebration of original music and art.
This is our 8th Homegrown Festival and it couldn’t have landed on a more trying, strange, and complicated year in history. The number eight has always had a similarity with infinity or infinite possibilities. That is exactly how we are going to take on this Homegrown Festival 2020. Indeed, the impact of Covid-19 has been, to say the least- devastating on many levels. Amidst tragedy, we together have a unique duty here for our scene and our HOME. To create and deliver something beautiful, so special, and positive with our music; that it brings that same joy and hope to our entire community and beyond. The Homegrown team has been spending months flexing our creativity to put on the best event yet. We have found new and innovative ways will celebrate the original artists of our community to our communities, our region, our country, and our world.
With so much uncertainty within our future, we have dedicated extra time into solutions that will create a safe and impactful Homegrown experience for all. Our team of experts will bring this year’s Homegrown Arts and Music Festival live online. We are not just streaming this event live, we are planning an online production/experience that will make Homegrown Festival stand out as the most unique, innovative and exciting affair for the endless talent in the Chicagoland area. Don’t miss this once a year opportunity to connect with countless musicians/artists, media personnel, and fans from our local communities! #8HG2020
