This category is for Acts/Artists offering concert performances and/or themed shows and/or workshop/s and/or CD launches as part of our General Program.
YOUR ACT/ARTIST NAME
When entering your Act/Artist Name please ensure this is NOT a description of what you are offering (eg. “Songs of the Workers” is a description, “Working Man’s Band” is an Act Name. If you don’t have an Act Name use your own. You will then be asked to give your Act Type. Please select one of the categories. If nothing applies to your Act, select ‘Other’ and then give a one or two word description in the box provided. Under Genre tell us what best describes your act e.g. Americana; Celtic; World; blues & roots; eclectic etc. etc.
PROGRAM CATEGORIES: When asked to select your program category/categories (you can select more than one) tick General Program.
If you are also offering other program elements i.e. a KidzFest show or activity or a session etc. you should also tick the relevant box and then ensure you give a description in the next part of the application.
WHAT ARE YOU OFFERING: This will all now be listed in the one place so ensure you include everything, especially if you tick any of the other program categories. Please DO NOT give lengthy descriptions. Keep each entry to one line only. With so many applications we don’t have time to plough through 100s and 100s or words. See the example below. If we want more information we will ask for it if your application is successful.
QUOTING YOUR FEE: Your quoted fee should cover your act for the entire festival including travel costs and, be realistic, moderate and reasonable. Please note that we do not pay a per performance fee. DO NOT include GST when quoting your fee. Please keep in mind that the National Folk Festival is a not-for-profit, community based event run by volunteers and a small staff. Any profits that the Festival makes are used towards improving the staging of the event.
