XMF Information

On behalf of the experience festival team we would like to welcome you to our first annual one of a kind festival we are kicking off this year. You can think of this event kind of like the Grammy's. A group of artists from varying styles coming together to share, support, and celebrate each other and their music.


Any 7th-12th grade student


  • Bands - any style of band with drums. Rock, pop, metal, punk.

  • Singer songwriter - solo or small group that performs originals or covers (no drums, but cajon, djembe, and shaker are ok)

  • Rap/hip-hop/Electronic/R&B

  • Vocal A Capella - any size of pop A Capella or jazz group. Choreography or no choreography is great.

  • Solo artist - think the voice! Solo acts that sing covers with background track or live accompanyment.
