Folk on the Rocks 2015 Artist Submissions

Applications to perform at the 2015 Folk on the Rocks Festival are closed to Southern Artists. Northern artists have until March to still submit their applications. For Northern applications please submit to exec_director@folkontherocks.com or keithfotr@hotmail.com.  You are also able to mail hard copy submissions to our mailing address:

Box 326 Yellowknife, NT X1A 2N3

APPLY

Thank you to all of the Southern performers who took the time to make submissions as we sincerely appreciate your time.

We receive over 400 submissions a year from artists around the world. We also consider recommendations made by other festival producers, audience members and artists. Programming decisions take into consideration the strength of an artist’s performance and material, the overall variety of the Festival’s artistic program, the artist’s ability to participate in and/or provide ideas for original workshops, and travel and budget fees. The Society also supports northern arts by ensuring that more than 40% of our acts come from north of the 60th parallel.

Long-time Volunteer of Folk passes away.

Folk on the Rocks would like to acknowledge the passing of Doug Ritchie. Doug was a tireless volunteer and friend of the Festival over the last fifteen years or more. He helped Folk develop our environmental policies and was a strong contributor to the greening of the Festival.  Doug was always warm and cheerful and just rolled up his sleeves and got busy. Our condolences to France and Doug’s family and friends. We’ve lost one of the good ones.
