2015 Performer Applications Closing Soon.

Expressions of interest for performers wanting to be part of the 2015 National Folk Festival will close soon.

The National Folk Festival is currently transferring all performer information into a new version of their database which is taking longer than planned. To avoid system overload over the next few days the Festival team have extended the application process by one week.National Folk Festival

Final date for performers submissions is: Midnight Tuesday July 8 2014.

The Festival team is seeking a broad mix of all things ‘folk’ from the traditional to contemporary and quirkier interpretations of the genre.
They’re looking for acts that can offer concerts, themed presentations, workshops, spoken & written word, children’s and youth performances, circus and theatre including puppetry, structured/programmed sessions, dance displays, dances (bands and callers), dance workshops, street entertainment – musicians, roving acts, circus and choirs.

Featured State:

The featured state in 2015 is New South Wales. The team is looking for applications from performers who represent the best of the folk arts the state has to offer.

There are a few changes to the application process so please ensure you read all the relevant information for your Act Type before starting your application.
