MUSIC AT THE MARKET: Musicians wishing to perform on the market’s main stage must contact the Market Manager to schedule dates for performance. While we sometimes have last minute openings, most of the seasonYou are solely responsible for following all applicable copyright laws. The Manager reserves the right to choose performers that best suit the integrity and spirit of the market. Priority may be given to musicians based in Skagit County.  If you are interested in playing at the market please contact us at [email protected]  Most musicians are paid a flat rate of $100-150 plus tips to play from 10am to 1pm although musicians booked through the Anacortes Music Project can sometimes negotiate higher appearance fees (subject to grant funding).

Curious about what kind of music does well at the market? Although we host good musicians of all types from solo singer songwriters to a local drumming group, upbeat music with feel good energy does best at our market.  Check out these examples:

Romanian inspired instrumental by local group The Jazz Hounds

Toe tappin’ vocals from traveling band MoonCats

BUSKING: Busking for tips is welcome at the market but please check in with the manager to receive permission first.  Busker’s music may not interfere with the sound coming from the main stage so it is generally not possible to use amps and brass instruments may not be appropriate in all cases.
