    Performer Information

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 one group.


Applications can be made online (our preferred option) or you can download and print an application form and post it to PO Box 52, Seaford SA 5169.
