Decatur Metro, one of the organizers of the event, says sign-ups are now available. This year the number of musicians and porches is capped at 200. Last year, Porchfest had 185 performances. It had 134 performances in its inaugural year. For more information about how to sign up, click here.

Decatur Metro says the organizers would like to continue diversifying the musical guest list this year.

“We’ve had great variety over the past two years and would love to keep building on that,” the announcement from DM says. “So if you know anyone in hip-hop, doo-wop, gospel, punk, funk, electronica, jazz, soul, pop, reggae, show tunes, classical, or any other genres not immediately associated with porches, give ‘em a shout and let them know: We want the most eclectic and unpredictable Porchfest possible.”

The event is is modeled after a similar event in Ithaca, N.Y. That first year of event’s Porchfest had 25 to 27 performances.
