Artist Submissions

Call for Artists, Designers, Creatives and Makers!

Music Tastes Good is an eclectic two-day music and food festival, taking place at an outdoor location in downtown Long Beach, CA on Saturday, September 30th & Sunday, October 1st. Inspired by our nation’s shipping ports, and more specifically, the Port of Long Beach, this year’s event draws heavily on cultural exchange and the import and export of sounds, flavors, and ideas.

The festival is looking for projects that:

  1. Provide high impact with exceptional and visionary work.
  2. Engage community through an artist-initiated process.
  3. Exhibit cultural experimentation and innovation.

Ideal projects will embody one or both of the overarching and intertwined festival themes of musical performance and culinary arts.

All media is accepted. This includes, but is not limited to, painting, photography, sculpture, light projection, video, and all two-dimensional and three-dimensional work, new-media and any non-traditional media. Submission can be a single piece, a series, an installation with multiple components, or any other output that could be exhibited in an outdoor space. The space is big, really big. Think big, nothing but vast amounts of bigness.

*Please note, questions asked within 24 hours of deadline may not be answered in a time frame necessary to complete your submission so please consider submitting early to ensure all your questions are addressed.

Please direct all correspondence to the festival’s Director of Art Installations, Nicolassa Galvez at art@musictastesgood.com.
