On behalf of the Entertainment Committee for the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival, Thank you so much for your interest in performing at our event! We are officially full for this year. We normally begin looking to fill our schedule in January. However, on occasion, we will get bands that want to perform and come with full sponsorship or no fee factor; if the band is a fit for our family event, we will book them prior to January.
As a performer/band for our event, our basic budget is $500.00. Performance time is usually two hours with breaks. Everyone must be flexible as our start times can fluctuate depending on the weather and delays. We provide a stage/showmobile, which has a roof type awning, sound and lights (BC Sound/Kerry Johnson).
We also provide food for the band members in our VIP Tent. A small canopy with tables and chairs is directly behind the stage and we have coolers filled with cold beverages.
We promote our bands on our website and in most cases we provide complimentary admission passes for band members to give away prior to our event to their fans, family and friends.
If all this sounds good to you, please feel free to send an email sometime after January 1, 2021.
