2021 Farmer’s Ball presented by KJHK

KJHK Presents the 2021 Farmers Ball - Enter Here:

This year, KJHK is re-imagining its traditional Farmers Ball concert series on a digital platform. We are still working out the details, but the time to submit music is now! We are offering some unique prizes to our winners, including the chance to have your very own music video produced by our staff. Be sure to enter by 11:59 pm on February 28th! Specific questions about the entry process may be sent to stationmanager@kjhk.org.
  • You Must Submit Your Entry by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 7, 2021.

  • The Process:

    1. All eligible bands and artists must submit their music via this online form by March 7, 2021.
    2. KJHK's staff will listen and review all submissions, and narrow the field down to 10 acts selected for the semi-final round.
    3. The 10 semi-finalists for Round 1 of Farmer's Ball will be announced by Friday, March 12th. This will give the selected 10 bands roughly 3 weeks to submit video footage of themselves for both the semi-finals and finals, should they be selected to move on.
    4. Farmers Ball semi-finals and finals will be held virtually the week of April 4th - 10th, specific dates/times TBD. We are still working out the details of streaming the event but expect to have more information soon.
    5. Based on audience voting during the semi-finals show, 6 finalists will advance to the Farmer's Ball Finals at the end of the week.
    6. Based on audience voting during the Farmer's Ball Finals, a winner and runners-up will be announced that night.
