Applications are now open for the 2024 Festival! Apply below.

Each year, the Yarraville Festival receives more applications to join the festival, and as a result, we may not be able to accommodate everyone. Please take note that we do our best in selecting our artists, and please respect that allocations made by the festival committee are final.

Successful applicants will be contacted via email. 

Successful participating artists will be allocated a 45 minute set on the Main Stage while Community Groups will generally have between 15 – 30 minutes including changeover time. Artists joining the Main Stage may receive a small fee, which will be disclosed upon acceptance of application. Community groups will not receive a fee for their performance.

Roving street performers are also encouraged to register.
