Performer Application

Newstead Live Music Festival
21 to 24 January 2022


Due to the current COVID situation, we are only accepting Victorian performers.

We look forward to welcoming back interstate and overseas performers for the 2023 festival.

We welcome applications from folk/acoustic acts, children's performers and spoken word performers.

Applications are now open and will close on 31 July, 2021. All applicants will be notified of the selection outcome by the end of August.

So that you have realistic expectations of the fee you ask, please consider the performer budget information shown here. We may not be able to afford you! If you are little known or a first-time act, let us know if you would perform just for tickets.

If you are not familiar with the festival, please take some time to check out the 2020 line-up to give you some idea of what we are looking for. We are not a blues festival, although we may book a blues act. We are not a rock festival although we may book one or two acts with drums.
