Performer Applications

Performer EOIs are now open!

We are now welcoming and encouraging any and all acts to register their expressions of interest for Newtown Festival 2021. Previous programmes have been filled to the brim with musicians, dancers, buskers, circus performers, community groups, paraders, site activators and much more. We will consider everything! 

Our 2020 programme was bigger and better than ever, with 900+ performers across 170+ acts in the streets and venues of Newtown.

In our preparations for Newtown Festival 2021, we are aiming to serve a huge local lineup again. For the interests of public safety in the current Covid-19 crisis, we are working under the conditions that the festival may or may not happen, or that the way the festival can happen may change, at short notice. We will prepare to expect the unexpected. Some processes may take longer than usual. In the meantime, we will aim to work to our normal timeline to ensure we are ready to provide a great Newtown Festival.
