From July 16th-18th, 2021, the Dawson City Music Festival Association will host a small, physically distanced weekend of music in the beautiful Klondike Valley. While this iteration of the festival will look dramatically different from the DCMF many of you know, it will hold the same core spirit of joy, creativity, and friendship – just this time safely apart with Covid-specific regulations firmly in place that respect the health and well being of our community. We invite all musical acts from the Yukon, of any level of experience interested in performing to fill out our brief submissions form by June 2nd, 11:59 pm Yukon time!
