CALL TO MAKERS: Musicians, Artists and Makers



Who are we looking for? Musicians, artists and makers who have created interesting and unusual methods of producing music and sound. From modern primitives to high tech wizards. If it’s interesting, fun or entertaining we want it to be a part of this event.

What’s involved? You just need to tell us about yourself and your project. Then submit a short video of your work in action along with a couple of photos. You can also provide links to your social media channels and YouTube/Vimeo content. We want to help you promote yourself and your work as much as possible.

The first round “Call for Makers” is open now through April 15th, 2021.If you are a music maker and have crafted your own unique musical instrument made from traditional materials, scrap materials, modified electronics, altered playback devices, electromechanics, or an AI driven robot, please do apply. We are also open to entries that include non-physical works like algorithmic music and interactive applications.


In 2018 the first Maker Music Festival took place in Sebastopol, California. A delightful event, it showcased the projects and talents of a select group of music makers from the San Francisco Bay area. There were exhibit booths, live performances, demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Of course, in 2020 the live event landscape dramatically.

So now we’re going virtual. We’re inviting music makers from around the world to join us in a celebration of innovative sound creation.

The festival takes place on May 15th and 16th, 2021.
