Vintage Band Festival 2019 takes place August 1-4, 2019 in Northfield, Minnesota. During that time we provide housing for some of the bands that travel to Northfield from outside the state of Minnesota. This is particularly important for our international musicians who are the first to arrive in town. We will be welcoming bands from Germany, Belgium, and Finland for the 2019 festival week.
This year we need to find housing for approximately 15 musicians for 2-4 nights between July 30-August 5) That means we are looking for families to offer homestays for 1-4 musicians depending on available space in their homes. The German and Belgian groups are quartets. We are looking for housing only as the musicians will eat meals elsewhere during the day wherever they are performing.
The households that offered homestays for our festival in 2016 reported having a marvelous time with their guests and our musicians told us how grateful they were for the hospitality provided by Northfield families. This is a wonderful cultural exchange opportunity for everyone.
If you are willing to be one of our host families for 2019, please fill out the form below and let us know how many people you have space for. We will be in contact with you promptly and begin making plans for the musicians’ arrival on July 31.
