The interest form is short, requiring some general information about the music and links to up to two songs already listed on Spotify to submit for consideration. There is no limit to the number of songs selected for the playlist.

Songs will be juried by Alana Rolfe, Assistant General Manager of the Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO, based on the merit of the song and the quality of the recording. The playlist will then be curated to form a cohesive listening experience.

Social distancing might be the norm for now, but summer is just around the corner and folks will be eager to kick off their travels right. The musical talent of the Cowboy State provides the perfect soundtrack for any adventure across Wyoming’s beautiful landscape.

The Summer Road Trip Playlist is an annual release hosted on Spotify and promoted at high tourism areas across the state, such as at State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails, Wyoming visitor centers, museums, and festivals. In addition to the promotion of the playlist, artists will receive featured pieces on their music through Wyoming Arts Council media channels.

The Summer Road Trip Playlist is an annual part of the Arts Council’s Wyoming Independent Music Initiative (WIMI), working to build a robust music scene in Wyoming.
