2022 Moisture Festival: Opening March 17
Hosting A Moisture Festival Artist
Be a Host to a Moisture Festival Artist
Hosting an Artist is an integral volunteer role of Moisture Festival. Volunteering to house our traveling artists helps keep festival costs down and allows us to book acts from all over. This could be hosting an artist in your spare bedroom, your basement MIL, your backyard cottage, or many other dwelling options. If you operate an AirBnB, please consider donating a stay to Moisture Festival.
What is the timeline for hosting?
Moisture Festival runs for 4 weeks, March 17- April 10, 2022.
Hosts can house an artist for as much or as little time as their space is available.
Artists are usually booked to perform for one week of the festival. They typically arrive in Seattle on Tuesday or Wednesday of the week they are to perform and depart Sunday or Monday. Some artists may come in for a slightly shorter or longer stay.
What is expected of me if I host?
Hosts are expected to provide clean, safe sleeping and bathroom accommodations for artists.
Hosts are NOT expected to feed, entertain or shuttle artists around. Artists are only expecting a place to stay while they are in town to perform. You can choose how much or how little you want to interact with your guest.
Are there any perks?
Hosts receive two comp tickets for each week they host so that you can come see a show featuring the artist you are hosting.
How does hosting work during COVID?
The following was the Moisture Festival Covid Safety Policy for the 2022 Festival. We continue to monitor the public health situation and will update our policy in 2023.
Moisture Festival is requiring all participants, including artists, staff, volunteers and attendees to show proof that they are fully vaccinated. “Fully vaccinated” means a volunteer’s first shift must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. Proof of negative test will NOT be accepted in lieu of proof of vaccination.
This means host households and artists must be vaccinated to participate. For more information please refer to our Moisture Festival Covid Safety Policy.
