2021 Applications

We need great talent to perform, host workshops and lead our dance programme for the 2021 Wellington Folk Festival. If you’d like to be in the programme in any of these capacities (or know people who might), here is a link to our online application form.


Applications close on Sunday 7 February.

Feel free to forward this email and link to your friends or anyone you’d like to see on our guest list. Applications are encouraged in any of these areas:

  • Concerts or other performance
  • Dance in a variety of traditional and modern styles
  • Workshops on dance, musicianship, performance, specific instruments, cultural and historic influences and evolution of folk music and dance
  • Learning (and fun) activities for kids

The application form has specific guidance on how to put together your application. It’s important to complete the form in full so we have a consistent basis for comparing potential guests and preparing a rough programme.

Because the world is still affected severely by Covid-19 we are working on the basis that we are highly unlikely to be able to consider applicants from outside New Zealand (and possibly Australia). We will keep you informed by email, Facebook and our web site of any developments that affect our planning.

Subject to pandemic constraints, we expect to be in contact with shortlisted guests by the end of April.
