By partnering with Confluence, your company will be supporting the local music community and helping to establish Charlotte as a regional hub for music. We envision Confluence as a must-attend event for the Carolinas’ music community for years to come. We invite you to be a part of building this with us. 

Play a Showcase

Calling all Carolinas-based talent! Confluence will include two nights of showcase sets in multiple venues around Charlotte. These are paid opportunities open to artists or groups based in N.C. or S.C., and you never know who might be in the room. While we love all kinds of music, the goal of Confluence is to highlight great original music by artists from the Carolinas.

*Showcase applications are now closed.


Volunteer opportunities will be open in summer 2024. If interested, make sure you sign up for the newsletter.
