Performer Applications 2019

Thank you for your application which offers us a broad pool of talent to develop an exciting festival program. We value performers willing and able to participate throughout the weekend from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon; from the Opening Parade, within workshops and in small and large venues.

Like most festivals we will require confirmation of your public liability insurance for paid performers but documents will only be requested at the contract stage.

Unfortunately we have a mischief hacker causing some grief. Ifyou receive an error message on submission, please email me at [email protected] and I will email a good old fashioned manual form. Good luck.

Applications are open for 2019.

Performance fee

Our Festival is a small, non-commercial, community arts event with a limited budget. Please give a realistic quote on the basis of covering expenses and/or a realistic fee structure. If you are eligible to charge GST, please include this in your quote.

Stage requirements

All P.A. equipment, lighting etc. is supplied by the Yackandandah Folk Festival. However, as we are a regional festival we have limited back-line hire (guitar amps, drum kit). Loaning/hiring from other musicians would be your responsibility to co-ordinate.
