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.

Below, you can see a list of performers who’ve experienced what we call “The Springboard Effect” – check out the diverse ways our work has directly affected our musicians!

Scroll even further to explore a Bootcamp schedule from a past event and then listen to a pair of our mentors (that you may recognize!) discuss what it means to be involved in the Bootcamp process.
