Following the success of our wonderful buskers at last year’s festival, we are looking for more of the same this year. We figure that there is even more local talent out there so we’re turning things up a little bit. In addition to having buskers playing ‘unplugged’ around the village throughout the weekend, we will also have a small festival stage (backline provided) where bands & acts will be performing live sets throughout Saturday 15th September.
In the first instance, we would like to open this opportunity to acts with local connections. To submit a request to play, please send the following details to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Interested in busking or playing a live set?
- Short bio/details of your act.
- Links to your music online (YouTube, Sound Cloud etc. please don’t send files as attachments).
- Your connection to the area.
Please double check your availability before applying.
Buskers can retain their takings by way of payment, or as many did last year, donate it to our chosen charity Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity. We will promote our acts online in the run up to festival and have set as aside a reasonable budget so that the bands & acts playing on our stage are rewarded also.
Please note, we have a limited number of slots and locations to fill throughout the weekend, so if you want to be considered by the organiser, please let us know as soon as possible. The closing date for local submissions is Friday July 6th. After that time we will open it up to a wider audience.
