Apply to Play DET X DET 7

DET X DET is returning to Metro Detroit for the seventh time on April 22, 2017. The "small" music gathering has grown into a large, well known local festival that we have had the honor of MC-ing the last few years. Every year the lineup gets more interesting and we discover a new band or artist to fall in love with. Over the years we have seen some of Detroit's best past and present cover some of Detroit's best past and present. I always look forward to seeing the official lineup announcement because there is a mix of bands that I really love and bands that I've never heard of playing bands I really love and bands I have never heard of. Plus, proceeds form the whole event go to the School of Rock to raise funds to raise future musicians to play future DET X DET shows, so the whole event is sort of circular and fabulous at the same time.

If you are part of a really cool band and you would like to apply to cover another band you can visit the new Detroit by Detroit website and turn in an application. They are accepting apps through December 31st, so you have a second to think about it. But, once you have given it some thought, take a chance and apply. We would love to see some new bands on this year's roster, and we would love to see some of our favorite artists do some solid covers! Either way, it will be fun and some money will once again be raised for a great cause.

Good luck! We hope to be introducing your band at the April 22nd show!
