Apply to Perform at the Airport!

Although a pre-qualified pool of artists has already been selected, the Art in the Airport program is always looking for performing artists. Anyone is welcome to apply, but the program seeks artists who perform original music, or music from traditional genres. We are particularly interested in acoustic musicians or those that are able to pass instruments through a TSA screening port.  Applicants that are accepted join a Pre-Qualified Performing Arts Roster. Anyone accepted into the program is considered elegible for a performance at the Pittsburgh International Airport or Allegheny Airport Authority events. Acceptance into the Roster does not guarantee a performance opportunity.

The application process is comprised of two steps. Applicants who do not complete both portions of the process will not be considered for review.

Step 1

Please fill out this application form:

Step 2

Create a profile and upload at least 3 worksamples on the Pittsburgh Artist Registry.  A selection panel will be reviewing this profile to consider your inclusion into the Pre-Qualified Performing Arts Roster. The Pittsburgh Artist Registry is a free portfolio website for residents of a 13 county region in Western Pennsylvania.


Performers are compensated at a rate of $100/hour (solo artists) and $175/hour (groups of 2 or more).
