Hi! Thanks for your interest in our festival.
This form is best for music, spoken word and comedy acts. If you are offering a dance presentation, participative arts workshop, talk, panel discussion, yoga/wellness workshop, street theatre, circus or theatre presentation, please head back to the artist applications page for the appropriate form.
What we’re looking for
Fairbridge Festival began as a little folk music festival 25 years ago, and has since expanded into a 3-day event that hosts an array of music and performers.
We get asked about genre a lot – we just love music! We are primarily focussed on presenting folk, world and roots music, but we’re constantly looking to expand our offering. We are a broadminded organisation, and will consider other forms of music which may work within the programming ethos of each festival. Although many selected acts do play covers, trad tunes or standards, we do not book cover bands. Acts who can also deliver interesting workshops, themed presentations, or are releasing music before the festival will be favourably considered. We have dedicated youth and childrens programs, so please let us know if you can present something for these audiences.
Music is our lifeblood, but we also book a big range of talks, street performers, circus, arts and crafts workshops, dance displays, wellness activities… if you do something awesome, we’d love to hear about it!
