An event like no other, Springboard West is three days that change lives and careers!

We bring together the most talented, hard working musicians – from around the country for the opportunity to receive mentorship, network and pitch their music to some of the industry’s top executives - creating a monumental impact on their careers and our surrounding community and partners.



We hand select 40 of the top emerging artists, out of thousands of applicants, to participate in our one-of-a-kind Springboard Festivals.



Artists receive 2 full days of training during our Band Bootcamp; including Panels, Workshops, one-on-one Networking and our “The Moment of Truth” direct pitch sessions to professional music supervisors for film/TV placements. All of this comes from the generosity and courtesy of some of the music industry’s most influential and powerful people including those involved in launching and guiding superstars like Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Guns N Roses.



On day 3 we close out the festival by partnering with the community to showcase all 40 bands on 4 stages in Ocean Beach for our Band & Brew Crawl. Artists take what they’ve learned and deliver the performance of their careers. All while attendees go from venue to venue discovering new music, marking off their games cards and redeeming them at the end for prizes. The audience isn’t just filled with fans, it’s packed with the same industry pros that act as mentors, so you know the walls will be shaking.  



All proceeds from our festivals benefit our non-profit partners; Sustainable Artists, The Autism Tree Project Foundation and Pioneer Programs.
