Applications for our 2017 festival are now closed, but come along anyway. There are opportunities to play in the walk-up tents. Get in early for 2018.
Send us an email and let us know about your band or act. A web link to your music would be a great too. Numbers are limited.
If you are accepted as a performer, you will be asked to provide a promotional photograph and a detailed description for the Program and our web site.
Wirrina Bluegrass amplification policy
Amplification is used to balance the instruments and make the music accessible to a large group of people to enjoy. All stages use high quality PA systems.
The Wirrina Bluegrass Festival is about showcasing Bluegrass and its acoustic cousins. It has come about through a partnership between the Yankalilla Acoustic Music group and SA’s Bluegrass musicians.
The SA Bluegrass music community has very high quality musicians some with over 40 years of experience and a passion that they want to share through our festival. Most of these musicians play acoustic instruments.
Code of practice
- Amplification is used to balance volume levels of instruments playing together.
- Electronic effects are seen as music distortion not music enhancement.
- If your instrument requires amplification to balance its volume to the acoustic guitar in festival sessions, a small battery powered amp is appropriate.
