Are you a Curator? ACT4Music would love to hear from you!
We seek to to leverage today’s networking technology by involving the best curators of creative music from all over the planet in the programming of our daily content.
Creative musicians have toured the planet since the days of Louis Armstrong. We are thus a global community, and it is far overdue that we started acting as one.

Musicians of All Persuasions from All Over the World.
ACT4Music Fest. is an opportunity for creative musicians all over the world to come together in one great 8 week long, 6 days a week, 4 artists per day celebration of music. We hope that by the end of those 8 weeks to have presented audiences all over the world with at least 192 amazing shows.
Creative music may be known by many names, with jazz being the most common, but we avoid using a name so as to escape the limitations of genre and appeal to as broad a base of creative musicians as possible.
We’re doing this because, for most of us, music is not just a career, but a vocation! We simply hope that by providing musicians with a curated platform where they can present their music to audiences both near and far, that we can help bring a little more truth and positivity into this world.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I download videos?
The short answer is No. The long answer is;
The protection of artist content is important to us. At the same time, we’d like audiences to have the freedom to enjoy shows from anywhere at their leisure.
For this reason we are using a streaming model, where the audience is provided with access to content while on ACT4Music.org only.
What if I missed show? Can I still buy a ticket?
Because our shows are pre-recorded audiences can purchase a ticket to the current day, or any previous day, “a la cart”.
How long will I have access to days that I purchased?
The festival is 8 weeks long. Every ticket holder to a particular day will get at least 8 weeks of access (regardles of when they bought the ticket).
Why so many curators?
Rather than focus on one area of the community, we'd rather involve as much of the creative community as possible, including those present in other countries.
Having a different curator each day gives our festival a breadth, in terms of sound, artists, culture, and taste.
Why pay to watch video performances when I can see them for free on YouTube?
YouTube is great, but wading for hours through millions of videos to in order to find that one gem isn't.
ACT4Music is a curated experience by music lovers for music lovers. You also won't find any of our content on Youtube, because every performer's video was created by them specifically created for this festival.
Why are tickets so cheap?
Our festival is based on a “name your price” model, with a minimum ticket price of $3.
We believe that music should be affordable to all, but it shouldn’t be free!
We believe that by providing broad access and artist-centric compensation, we’ll be able to strike a balance that works for all.
