Apply to Perform on the Thirsty Ears Festival

ACM’s Thirsty Ears Festival will be held on August 13 and 14 this year.  The event is Chicago’s only classical music street festival and combines performances by our resident Palomar ensemble and guest ensembles and soloists with craft beer, food trucks, vendor booths and kid-friendly activities.  Last year more than 5,000 people attended the festival over the two days.

If you or your ensemble are interested in playing this year, please fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you.

The 2022 Thirsty Ears Festival is booked.  Thank you for your interest and we hope you can be part of the festival next year!
