Musician Submission Guidelines

The Cotati Accordion festival is a celebration of the accordion in all its many variations. The CAF welcomes submissions from a wide range of musical styles and acts, however, all performances must feature an accomplished accordionist.  

Artists may submit materials all year. The lineup is normally about full in January but submissions for the current year, and for future years, are always recommended as changes and cancellations do occur.
