About Deep Tropics

The fourth iteration of Deep Tropics’ boutique festival returns to Music City on August 26-27, 2022. It is a carefully curated, music, art, & style experience at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville’s beloved Germantown neighborhood from 3PM- 11PM each day. Deep Tropics has created an entire program of pre-parties, day-time events, workshops and opportunities to connect in intimate settings throughout the weekend. Additionally, multiple off-site afterparty options catering to different musical subgenres will occur simultaneously following the main event to carry us deep into the night. Expect a full program of pop-up events throughout the summer to escalate the energy and re-unite our tribe as we lead into the festival weekend.

Deep Tropics is produced by forward-thinking, dance music enthusiasts at Full Circle Presents. The creative site and stage design is led by art director Aaron Martin and will take the energy to stratospheric levels. The one-of-a-kind amphitheater in the park ensures every viewpoint is perfect with a beautiful downtown skyline view in the backdrop. It will host the massive, ancient temple inspired stage called “Meru,” a brand new stage dubbed “Lotus” and a third performance space known as the “Congo Soundsystem.” Intricate lasers, choreographed LED, moving lights, and art installs will illuminate the park. The venue is less than a mile from auxiliary party locations, downtown Nashville, and some of the city’s coolest districts.

Deep Tropics’ mission is to be the greenest festival in the United States. We are a climate positive event which simply means we create more energy than we use. These efforts are fueled by our non-profit organization Deep Culture, Inc which exists to curate experiences that activate transformation of self, community, and planet. In 2021, 79% of festival waste was prevented from entering the landfill. The proceeds from Green Disco Eco-Bands allowed us to plant 59,000+ trees in Kenya and help offset our carbon footprint. Many of Deep Tropics’ art projects are created from sustainable materials such as hempcrete & aircrete. Additionally, Deep Tropics has a zero waste initiative to ensure everything is either recyclable, compostable, or re-usable. Regenerative design is at the forefront of every aspect of the festival.

How to Submit to Glassetonbury:

  • Click the link HERE!
  • submit a 25-30 minute performance (audio and video), an artist biography, Electronic Press Kit, and photos according to our standards.

There will be two different types of submissions: premium and standard…

“Premium” submissions are based on your weekly level of contributions in promoting this event! We will be reviewing submissions based off a leaderboard which will be developed based off how many points you earn promotionally. The more “Premium” points you earn, the higher you will show up on the leaderboard, and it will help you be seen closer to the first on the bracket, hopefully increasing your chances of being accepted into the official bracket! You can earn up to 10 points per week.

“Standard” submissions are based on no promotional contributions, and are totally welcomed, as well!

Check in on this form here to keep track of premium points earned.

In order to be put under consideration, you agree that you are able to attend Deep Tropics’ festival dates on August 26th and 27th, 2022. The mix needs to be original and your own content, and you need to agree to follow Deep Tropics’ rules and policies onsite during the festival and failure to do so may result in removal from the grounds.

Submissions will close on April 23rd. We look forward to hearing what you have to offer!
