How To Apply To Play the FAR Stage
At this time, we are planning to run the Cornwall Folk Festival in August 2021.
We run our outdoor FAR Stage during the daytime of the festival. Each act has a 30 minute slot, with a 15 minute turnaround between acts, which means we normally have nine acts per day, or 27 in total.
Our FAR Stage manager Steve Appleby has the unenviable job of trying to squeeze the quart of applications into the pint-pot of slots we have available over the three days that the FAR Stage will be run (Sat 28th-Mon 30th Aug 2021).
We continue to take applications from acts in Cornwall and the South West.
Please use the form below to register your interest as a potential FAR Stage performer.
Acts that have already applied for the FAR Stage will also be considered for Shanty Street slots. Shanty Street is our catch-all title for music we organise in the streets, cafes and bars around the town centre.
Please bear in mind that Covid-19 issues may mean we have to change our plans as the August festival approaches, but we are hoping that the vaccine and other measures will mean a return to normality by the end of the summer 2021.
