Applications are now open until 30th November. Cygnet Folk Festival is offering a first prize of $500 for the best tune or song submitted. Enter the competition
Don’t forget, if you are planning to camp, our camping at beautiful Burtons reserve does sell out so get in early!
If you can’t afford a weekend ticket you can get one by volunteering at the festival!! There are lots of different roles that our wonderful volunteers manage, and for 12 hours before, during or after the festival you are entitled to a weekend pass. Of course, if you’ve volunteered before you will know what a wonderful volunteer family that we get at Cygnet Folk Festival and Tanya and Zoe, our wonderful volunteer coordinators will welcome you back with open arms!
Also, if you live in Cygnet and have a spare room or two we are always on the lookout for billet hosts for our lovely performers. Billet hosts are also entitled to a weekend pass and tell us how much they enjoy getting to know our fabulous artists (and the artists ALWAYS tell us how special their lovely billets are!!)
