Since the first Davis Music Fest in 2011, proceeds from our event have been donated to support arts and music education in Davis public schools. This year, we once again want to see what kind of stars our donations are creating, so we are reserving a performance slot for a local youth artist or band, to be determined through friendly competition! Hey kids, that means you!

We received a bunch of outstanding entries this year, but one rose to the top and we can’t wait to introduce you to Interoception! Davis High students Tristan, Gabriel, and band leader, Davis High senior Uma get together and make music when they aren’t doing school work. They are currently in the process of recording and releasing original music. Their music styles include indie rock, R&B, and jazz. Don’t miss their debut DMF set at Delta of Venus Cafe Stage, Saturday, June 15th, 2:00pm


* 30 minute live set at Davis Music Fest, 2024
* One full festival pass per performer plus hospitality access
* Media promotion as the winner of the 2024 DMF Youth Band Contest
* Your band’s name on DMF promotional materials and merchandise
* $200 compensation


Solo artists and bands are invited to enter. Performers must have at least one member who is currently a student in good standing at a DJUSD school and must be available and able to play the weekend of Davis Music Fest 2024, June 14-16.


Send a message to [email protected] containing a media file (.mp3, .mov, etc … ) or a link to online media (youtube, facebook, vimeo, your website) featuring at least one full song that you think best represents what the audience will see if you perform at DMF.
