What We Do
We hand select 40 of the top emerging artists, out of thousands of applicants, to participate in our one-of-a-kind Springboard Festivals.
Artists receive 2 FULL DAYS of training during our BAND BOOTCAMP; including Panels, Workshops, one-on-one Networking and our “The Moment of Truth” direct pitch sessions to professional music supervisors for film/TV placements. All of this comes from the generosity and courtesy of some of the music industry’s most influential and powerful people including those involved in launching and guiding superstars like Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Guns N Roses.
On DAY 3 we close out the festival by partnering with the community to showcase all 40 bands on 4 stages in Ocean Beach for our BAND & BREW CRAWL. Artists take what they’ve learned and deliver the performance of their careers. All while attendees go from venue to venue discovering new music, marking off game cards and redeeming them for prizes.
All proceeds from Springboard West benefit our non-profit partners; Sustainable Artists, The San Diego Music Foundation, The Autism Tree Project Foundation and Pioneer Programs.
