All performances at Tin Pan South are determined by a selection committee, and involve a submission and review process. The submission period for consideration is open until January 7, 2022.  If you'd like to submit a round for consideration, visit HERE Please note, there is an incredible amount of songwriters in the world and although we would love to included as many as possible, the number of spots available to play the festival is limited and many submission are unable to be included in the festival.

    Yes, we will have an app! The official festival app will be available October 2021 and will feature performers, venue information, area attractions, news, and more.

    To access a Tin Pan South show, you must either have a Fast Access Pass, Single-Show Ticket, or cash to pay at the door. When you arrive at the venue, you will see that there are two lines, one for Fast Access Passholders/Single-Show Ticketholders, and one for Cash. Once doors open for the event, the Pass/Ticket line will be admitted first, followed by the cash line until the venue reaches capacity. 

    YES! Most of our shows reach capacity, so if there is a certain show you really want to see, be sure to arrive early to line up!
