Performer Application for 2017

Applications will close at 5pm on July 1, 2017 and we expect to have completed selections and notified all applicants by mid july.


Notes for people applying (please read them):

  • As ever, * means we really need you to fill in that field!
  • We are a small, volunteer-run, non-profit festival running on a shoe-string. We can't pay fees (at least not this year) but along with the many benefits of playing at Quinty, we can offer some help with your travelling costs based on travel distance eg: ACT $50, Sydney / Melbourne $100, Newcastle / Mildura $120, Warnambool $150, Glen Innes / Coffs $200, Brisbane $250.
  • The bio you send us is what we'll publish on our website (yes, you get a year of free advertising!) if you're successful, so be careful!
  • We'll need a copy of your Public Liability Insurance Certificate of Currency before we can formally accept you to play at Quinty. Please try to resist the temptation to call us fascists (we aren't) or to point out to us that nobody's singing (with a small number of exceptions) has ever injured another person (we know that)! If you don't have Insurance yet, the FAA (Folk Alliance of Australia) www.folkalliance.org.au is a great place to look.
