Applications to perform at the 2018 festival open on 1st February and close on 30th April. Late applications cannot be accepted. We receive a large number of applications - many more than we are able to book - and we are not able to provide all those booked with a chance to perform on a main stage, although there will be opportunities to perform at an open-mic concert, and of course everyone is welcome to join in the sessions. Applicants will be notified sometime in June whether we have been able to fit them into the program.

One of the best ways to have fun at the Festival is by being a volunteer. By volunteering, you will make new friends and obtain great satisfaction from ensuring everyone has an enjoyable and memorable time at the Festival. A good festival requires lots of volunteers and your skills and time will be highly valued. Volunteer applications for Fleurieu Folk Festival 2018 open in March.
