The 2019 Guide To Festival Applications

LAST UPDATED: 2nd APRIL 2019

By Shannon Deary

Who has time for DIY? For any performing artists, this blog is going to be your whole world for the next few months. Below you will see a weekly-updated list of any festivals looking for artists to perform with a direct link to apply.

If you’re successful with any of your applications make sure to get in touch and we’ll be happy to share any info on our socials.

If you’re a Festival we’ve not found yet, drop an email to info@sentricmusic.com and we’ll make sure to add your details.

Good Luck!!

Just before you start applying for every single festival in a frenzy to get places, 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.

Good luck with all your applications and we’d love it if you let us know how you got on via our Twitter.

*This list will be continuously updated over the course of the year. If you are a festival that wishes to be added or removed from this list then please contact info@sentricmusic.com.
