Applications for the 2021 Newport Folk Festival are now open. We hope to bring a full program of music and activities at the usual venues but will keep the planning process flexible so it can adapt to changing circumstances and provide a safe space for all.
Successful applicants will be contacted and kept updated via email.
One of the questions below relates to these aims, so you'll need to read them.
We want you to be successful and the information you provide will be used to determine Festival performers.
Please be clear about your performance and what you bring to the Festival. Each performance is generally 45 minutes long. You need to provide a short bio for you/your group, a photo, a phone number, and an email address and can't submit the form without those.
We will not disclose your details to anyone else.We will only contact you on Festival or Folk Club business and not for any other purpose.
