Applications to perform at the 2014 Folk on the Rocks Festival are NOW CLOSED. Thank you to all of the 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.
This past festival we carried out an audience survey with the help of many wonderful volunteers. Please take the time to fill in this survey and help us build an even more dynamic Folk on the Rocks.
