The 2018 Guide To Festival Applications November 2017
Want to be the first to know when we add new festivals to the list?
By Shannon Deary
You’re 20 pages and four Red Bulls into your Google Search, desperately scouring the FAQ page of every festival in a drastic attempt to apply to play, silently wondering ‘God, if only my Publisher could make this easier for me!’ Well, worry no more! We’re now in our fourth year of helping all artists, newly established or returning favourites, land either their first or fiftieth festival slot by removing all that unnecessary hassle for you.
Below you will see our weekly-updated list of Festivals from around the world taking performance applications along with a direct link to the specific means to apply – leaving you with more time to have a cup of tea and a biscuit.
Best of luck and if you’re successful with any of your applications, get in touch and we will be glad to post any info on our socials.
Before you apply please consider these points...
1. Does my music suit this festival?
Please don't just apply for every festival listed. Look at their websites, check out their previous lineups. If you don't think your music would suit it, then do not apply for it.
2. Can I get to this festival?
It's great if a festival offers you a slot, but that's useless if you can't get there to play it. Consider your travel options and the potential costs before applying for any long distance opportunities.
3. Can I actually play those dates?
Check the diary, check your band mates diaries. Make sure you are actually free to play that weekend before applying for any festivals. It will save everyone a lot of time.
*If you are a festival that wishes to be added or removed from this list then please contact Sentric here.
