HONK! is a festival for activist street bands. The bands who come to this festival play in the streets, neighborhoods and schools. They are acoustic (no amplification). They work for social justice and to make the world a better place through their music and their actions. Please see our What is HONK!? page for more details. If that sounds like you, please feel free to send us an application by March 31st.
Here at HONK! Central, we only plan the HONK! festival. We don't serve as any sort of booking agency for any of the bands who come to our festival. Our best suggestion is to find the band you are interested in on our bands page and click on the band's webpage link to find out how to contact that band with your question.
That's awesome! The best way to do so is to contact an existing band near you. Our best suggestion is to find the band you are interested in on our band page and click on the band's webpage link to find out how to contact them. Good luck and HONK! on!
HONK! could not happen without the generous hospitality of local hosts. Please tell us:
The HONK! Festival thanks you, and the many visiting musicians thank you too.
HONK! is not like your average street fair. We want to keep the focus on the music so we don't have tables, vendors, food trucks or street performers. Sorry we can’t be more helpful. We hope you can come and enjoy the joyous energy of the event as a participant.
