We appreciate your interest in performing at the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival, however due to the high volume of submissions we receive, only selected applicants will be notified. All material received will be reviewed by the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival Programming Committee who is responsible for all final selections. Artists selected to perform will be contacted directly by the festival.  We will follow up with you ONLY in the event that we are able to offer a booking.  

Please do not contact our office unless asked to do so, as the overwhelming demand for performance opportunities often precludes us from accepting or returning solicitation calls. Unsolicited information that is mailed to Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival will not be reviewed and will not be returned.
