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

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 submission 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 the City of Rehoboth the appropriate price for your particular performance. Pricing may or may not be negotiated, please be considerate. The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand does not charge for admission to our performances.

In order to receive payment for your performance, you must fill out a W-9 tax form. 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. We are located within a large number of food vendors and there is plenty to eat and drink around the area.

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 the area.

If you wish to bring your own sound technician you must also bring your own sound equipment to the event.
