The Purple Room has been involved with producing the music at live events every summer at Assiniboia Downs for several years. If you’re interested in being considered for 2024 events, please fill out the application form below!

The Purple Room will be looking for mostly original bands and solo performers for the three Manitoba Night Markets as well as the MB Food Truck Battles, while we’ll be helping Assiniboia Downs book cover and tribute acts for a number of other events. The availability portion of the form below isn’t necessarily a final list of 2024 events, and so we may reach out to applicants to check their availability as new events are confirmed.

Compensation for performers begins at a minimum of $200 per set, and all performers will also receive food & drinks. Set times range from 30-60 minutes, depending on the stage and timeslot.

You only need to submit this form once. If you have additional information to add after submitting, please contact We thank all those who submit applications, but will only be reaching out to artists who we have the capacity to book for this year’s events.
