Call to Artists - Masonic Street Live!

The City of Northampton is encouraging local artists to apply to perform at the Masonic Street Live stage this summer! Masonic Street Live will occur at the Masonic Street Parking lot in downtown Northampton from June 3, 2022 through September 3, 2022.

Local artists will perform on stage in the Masonic Street Parking Lot annex on Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. Performers will be compensated with a $100 stipend (one payment per performance slot). 

Solo performers, duos, DJs or smaller acts are most appropriate for this stage. Performers must provide their own sound amplification equipment (powered speaker, guitar amps, keyboard amps, etc.) Large amplification equipment is not allowed due to the reverb of the sound in the area. Power will be provided by Iconica Social Club.

Outdoor concerts on summer nights in downtown Northampton is a tradition that dates back to the 1970s. Since then, Northampton has been fertile ground for producing unique original performers, often renowned on the national level. This summer, join us once again in bringing together the local community to enjoy free outdoor entertainment while taking in the many benefits of our picturesque downtown.
