Apply to Perform
Hurstbridge Wattle Festival offers many and varied opportunities for you to perform.
The Wattle Festival, as an event, does not as a general rule employ musicians nor entertainers. Many of the traders in Hurstbridge do employ musicians to perform during the day of the festival. If you wish to explorer this opportunity please visit www.hurstbridgevillage.com and make contact with traders to ascertian their needs.
We do offer the opportunity to busk throughout the festival. If you wish to take up this option, please contact us on 1300 660 072 and we will establish a site where you can perform.
We have a stage which affords the opportunity for local school groups to perform. If you are part of a school group or band, please contact us on 1300 141 446 or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
