Wanna be a part of one of Canada’s best music festivals?
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.
Southern Acts – February 19, 2016
Northern Acts – March 19, 2016
How to submit?
We prefer that musicians, performers and acts apply through our official Sonic Bids registry.
Alternatively, Southern performers can fill out an application form here.
For performers in Northern Canada, click here.
For more information and to submit your application, please email the Folk on the Rocks Selections Committee.
Thank you in advance to all of the performers, we sincerely appreciate your interest. As the Festival is a non-profit organization run almost entirely by volunteers, we aim to keep administration costs to a minimum. Bookings are normally completed by mid-April. If you have not heard from us by the end of April, you can assume that we were not able to include you in the line-up.
Thank you very much for your interest in our festival, and good luck!
