LinkFM is a great venue to showcase the talents of the artists in the Fargo-Moorhead area. It's a moveable gallery and concert hall, as well as a great way to get around the downtowns. All local artists with visual art pieces or music are welcome to submit them to LinkFM to be included.
Local Music *
Every Friday is Local Music Friday on LinkFM! The music playing on the indoor and outdoor speakers comes from artists living in the Fargo-Moorhead area, as well as nationally touring artists with local or regional ties.
Are you a local musician? Submit your songs to LinkFM for consideration to be played on Local Music Fridays! Songs must be less than 5 minutes long, in MP3 format, and appropriate for the general public. Submissions will be reviewed for content, and can be emailed, mailed or hand-delivered. Artist information will be listed on the LinkFM website and displayed on board the LinkFM vehicle.
Visual Art *
The ceiling of the LinkFM vehicle offers a unique opportunity for local artists to showcase their work. There are four panels available, of varying sizes. Signage onboard the vehicle will present artist information, as well as information about the featured artwork.
Are you a local artist? Submit a mockup or low-scale version of your artwork for consideration to be showcased on LinkFM! You can choose to scale a piece to fit the space available, or create something new. Submissions will be reviewed for content appropriate to the general public. Artwork chosen will be installed on the ceiling of the vehicle using the same vinyl material used on the exterior advertising wraps. Artist information will be listed on the LinkFM website and displayed on board the LinkFM vehicle.
