Dan Dyer @ Terminal 5...the JFK one 5/22 (jetblueflickr)
Dan Dyer

JetBlue will be hosting a concert series, Live from T5, from inside JFK airport's new Terminal 5 building. The six-month, 12-date concert series will "feature hand-picked emerging artists from around the U.S. as well as bands chosen based on public votes in a national online competition hosted by OurStage.com." Which means you can apply to play at the airport.

The series kicked off with a show by Dan Dyer at the airport on May 22nd. Its upcoming schedule includes Nicole Atkins (June 26th/today), American Princes and Justin Townes Earle. Three dates are set aside for "contest winners," and three more will be booked by concert promoter Superfly Productions.

About that contest..

Based on votes, five artists will win a spot during 'Live from T5' by uploading original music to www.OurStage.com/go/jetblue; grand prize winner will also open for a headlining act at Bowery Presents' Terminal 5 or another New York City venue.

As you can read, the other Terminal 5 (a Bowery Presents venue in Manhattan) is involved too, but only to possibly host the top contest winner. Confusing, I know.
