Applications for the 2019 National Folk Festival are now open and will close on 31st July 2018. Successful applicants will be notified by email no later than the first week of November 2018.
The featured State or Territory is a big part of the National Folk Festival and is inspired by the days when the National was held in a different location each year. From last year the festival staff began pairing States and Territories on a four year cycle.
This year they are looking for performers from Western Australia and Australian Capital Territory to contribute to next year’s program. This does not exclude people from other states from applying.
The National Folk Festival aims to be a culturally relevant, creative and diverse event celebrating the folk arts in all their forms while keeping the Festival fresh and vibrant. If you have something to offer they’d love to hear from you.
Please note: There is a new management system so there will be changes. Please ensure you read all the relevant information before starting your application.
