In order to be considered, you must be able to meet the following qualifications:

What we are looking for:
In consideration for performances, we look for criteria that meets or exceeds our expectations as listed here:

What we are NOT looking for:
We try to accommodate groups of all styles, however there are a few types of groups that we are specifically not looking to book:

Use of the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand:
The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand is NOT a rentable structure. The venue is used to promote musical entertainment for the citizens and tourists of Rehoboth Beach and the surrounding areas. Artists/groups can not specifically request to use the bandstand on a specific day. Groups are chosen and asked to perform based on the submitting of press packs and other materials. If groups would like to rent a facility for a performance or other event, please contact the City of Rehoboth Beach (302-227-6181) and request the use of the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center.

Pricing for groups:
It is the responsibility of the group to provide to us the appropriate price for your particular performance. Pricing may or may not be negotiated, please be considerate. The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand does NOT take tickets for events, so we have no way to be reimbursed for your performance.

In order to get paid for your performance, you must fill out a W-9 tax form. This will be given to you at the time of your booking and contract. All performers must provide either a federal tax ID number or a social security number prior to receiving any form of payment from the event.

Food and lodging:
We do not supply food or lodging to performers. Since we are located within a large number of food vendors, there is plenty to eat and drink around the area and we do not want to cause any business to lose revenue due to us providing meals.

Since we are in a resort area, there are many hotels, motels, and inns throughout the town. We do not have any arrangements with local lodging companies. It is the responsibility of the performers to provide their own lodging for their duration in Rehoboth Beach.

We recommend searching this website in order to search for hotels in your area.

What is provided to you:
The City of Rehoboth Beach provides you with a full PA and soundman for your performance. If you should choose to bring your own soundman, they will not have access to our system. If you wish to bring your own soundman you must also bring your own sound to the event.

General overhead lighting is provided. This lighting is bright enough to not need stand lights or extra lighting materials. We do not have colored or theatrical lighting. If you would like additional lighting, you must provide this on your own.

You have access to 70+/- folding chairs, 25+/- music stands, full dressing rooms (women and men separate), 3 private toilet facilities, and air-conditioned backstage areas.

You have access for up to 6 cars (depending on size) to park directly next to the bandstand. Additional parking will need to be utilized by parking meters. If you need additional parking requirements, contact the bandstand NO LATER than 7 days prior to your performance.
