With another awesome and excellent Total Fest behind us, we've started on planning for the twelfth annual  Total Fest, which is scheduled for August 15-17, 2013.

We're now accepting band submissions through April 1, 2013. As you route your late-summer tours, please consider that the best way to the Northwest from Minneapolis, or to the midwest from the west coast is on scenic I-90, via Missoula.

What do we want from you? The usual luddite feast: some tracks (a CDR is fine; vinyl or other material is great), a photo, a brief write-up of you and your mates (a review is ok), and reliable contact info (point of contact, email AND phone) for your band.

Additionally, we're happy to accept mp3s via the submissions email mentioned below, but please don't simply send us links to websites and ask us to choose what to listen to; we appreciate you taking the time to select tunes that best represent your sound and making sure to include the additional items requested above.

Please send band submissions to:
