Applications to perform at the 2017 Fleurieu Folk
Festival will be accepted from January 1st 2017
Please read the following performer
information before completing the Performer Application Form at
the bottom of this page
We are looking for folk music artists who
will be part of the event and be involved not only in concerts
but also sessions, singalongs, workshops, theme concerts, dances,
children's events where possible. Performers who can stay the
whole Festival and participate in the general festival atmosphere
are also highly considered. Many of the performers camp on site.
Some limited accommodation may be provided with billets or
caravan parks nearby.
We will welcome and look favourably upon artists who will also
contribute by helping make the festival happen! We always need
MCs, Venue Manager and many other tasks, so please also consider
strongly about volunteering. Please note that the Festival is
run by volunteers including a number of musicians and dancers
and survives solely on ticket sales and sponsorship and through
their goodwill. Performers who offer to help as well are also
looked upon favourably.
Paid performers must have their own public
liability insurance and WILL be asked to provide a copy of their Certificate of Currency. When performing, you are a Festival service
provider and as such are not covered by the Festival's public
liability insurance. We suggest investigating insurance options
with Folk Alliance Australia - see www.folkalliance.org.au
. You need to be or become
a member of Folk Alliance Australia.
Alternatively, you may wish to donate your performance to the
Festival, in which case you would be considered a volunteer and
be covered by the
Festival's public liability insurance. The Festival may also offer
you a small payment in lieu of travel expenses under these circumstances.
Performers also accept all responsibility for their Tax obligations,
Superannuation and WorkCover requirements.
All fees quoted are to be totally
inclusive of all costs such as GST, travel, etc.
Please note - if musicians are performing with more than
one group they will only receive payment for performance with
