THE BAND BOOTCAMP

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
FOR PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS

Our signature program takes place directly prior to every Springboard Music Festival and offers emerging artists direct exposure to a strongly-curated set of industry professionals.

These intimate panels, pitches and performances are all designed to offer each artist a true path to the next level of their career. Our success stories are extensive after years of perfecting the process.
