The FoCoMA Music Directory is a new resource that allows the public to discover local musical talent and bands, as well as reach out to book artists for performances. If you'd like to create an artist profile, you can do so here. Login and then hit "create artist listing" and save. 

There is no guarantee. There are 30+ stages of music happening in a two-day window from the afternoon into the late evening, so you can fit in as many as you want! Many artists will be performing simultaneously and venue capacities are limited, so access is offered on a first-come-first-served basis. FoCoMX encourages you to plot out your schedule in advance and you can do that right here on the website. The festival organizers have also strategically created lineups on multiple stages at one location for your convenience. As soon as one stage ends, the other is kicking off, so you never miss a beat!

If you're 18 or over, volunteer for one or more shifts (4+ hours) and attend a training session, the benefits to YOU are: a FREE wristband for FoCoMX ($40-$60 value) and a soft limited edition volunteer t-shirt. But we truly believe the benefits go beyond that! You become part of the fabric of the Fort Collins Musicians Association community, a community dedicated to supporting our local musicians. We literally CAN NOT do this festival without you, and as we all know, local bands don't become national bands without strong grassroots support. Click here to Volunteer! 

Sign up online as soon as the music lineup is launched on 3/17/23! Grab your shift early for the best choice. Some shifts become yours right away, some require supervisor approval.... For approval-required shifts, we'll email you.

For volunteers with a Saturday shift who want to see music Friday, we require a $20 deposit on Friday when you pick your wristband up at Volunteer Headquarters. When you check in on Saturday, your cash deposit will be returned to you. 

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that it’s important to be cautious and considerate when it comes to public health. If you are potentially contagious or are showing any COVID symptoms prior to your FoCoMX shift, please either log in and cancel your shift through the website, or email us at [email protected] as early as possible to cancel so we can try to fill your vacancy.

This FAQ item is under construction as we test out the site for our 3/17 launch. Most notably, the buttons for signing up to volunteer won't be hooked up until schedule launch.
