COVID-19 And Australian Music Festivals
Today, the Australian Government has announced bans on gatherings of more than 100 people indoors, and 500 people in outdoor settings in an attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout the Australian community.
In this environment, the majority of music festivals scheduled to occur in the coming weeks have been forced to cancel or re-schedule.
Music will find a way of course! During periods like these, music plays such an important role in 'escaping' from the every day. But right now, music festivals in their current format are being heavily impacted.
There are music festivals of all types right across Australia looking for performers right now.
You perhaps know that, but it's a challenge to know which festivals are looking, and when! And no doubt, you've kicked yourself when you've missed that opportunity to apply.
So every fortnight, we scour our massive database of Oz music festivals to see which ones are accepting applications from performers, and we let you know. We call it our Performer Applications Alert service.

Thinking about New Year's Eve yet? Sydney Harbour Bridge fireworks? Nah, done that - plus it's too big, too crowded. Home with the family? Nah, no offence family, but that's just a bit too quiet. Time to do something different. Make this New Year's Eve truly memorable with a road trip into country Australia, with live folk music in intimate venues, and a weekend in a special Australian town rich with gold mining history.
29th - 31st December, 2019
Featuring The Bushwackers
Australia's best-known, best-loved bush band, The Bushwackers, will head the bill at the Gulgong Folk Festival.
The Bushwackers play proudly Australian music, much of it based on the traditional folk and working songs from the early 20th century but have seamlessly incorporated celtic instrumentals and great contemporary original songs like Leave It In The Ground, Another trip To Bunnings, Dirt Under My Nails, Beneath The Southern Cross, Henry’s Men and the iconic I Am Australian.
Also appearing is Bethany Jolly, a fine singer-guitarist from Brunswick Heads and award-winning Luke Robinson, with a stunning bass voice, from Mullumbimby.
