Who Should Apply?
Eligible artists must be tour-ready and fit certain criteria to make the most out of their appearance at gF. How do we define global music? We try not to. We let the artists define it for us. Check out our list of past performers, NPR archive, gF Alumni Spotify Playlist and Selector CD to get a better idea of the diversity of styles. There is no fee to apply for the gF Flagship Festival.
