Apply to Perform

Performer applications for  2024 are now CLOSED

A huge thank you to everyone that applied to perform!

We are looking for folk music artists who will be part of the event and be involved not only in concerts but also sessions, singalongs, workshops, theme concerts, dances, children's events where possible. Performers who can stay the whole Festival and participate in the general festival atmosphere are also highly considered. Many of the performers camp on site. Some limited accommodation may be provided through billets

Important information for performers

Paid performers must have their own public liability insurance and will be required to provide a copy of their Certificate of Currency. When performing, you are a Festival service provider and, as such, are not covered by the Festival's public liability insurance. We suggest looking into insurance options with Folk Alliance Australia - see You need to be or become a member of Folk Alliance Australia to take advantage of this insurance.

 Alternatively, you may wish to donate your performance to the Festival, in which case you would be considered a volunteer and be covered by the Festival's public liability insurance. 

Performers must also accept all responsibility for their Tax obligations, Superannuation and Work Cover requirements.

 All fees quoted are to be inclusive of all costs such as GST, travel, etc.

 We welcome and look favourably upon artists who will also contribute by helping make the festival happen! We always need MCs, Venue Managers and many other tasks, so please also strongly consider volunteering. Please note that the Festival is run by volunteers, including a number of musicians and dancers and survives solely on ticket sales and sponsorship and through their goodwill. 

Important Notes
