How to perform at the Phoenix…
SORRY APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR 2017 🙁
The selection process would go like this:
First hurdle – your act…
a) is local and/or has a good following or connection within a 25 mile radius of Cirencester
b) hasn’t played at the Phoenix Festival in the last two years
c) gets application in on time and
d) provides a sample of music that is well rehearsed and of a standard suitable for the event (YouTube, Soundcloud etc)
We limit the amount of acts in each genre and the committee select special guests that do not necessarily meet the above criteria – these slots cannot be applied for.
Applications that meet the above criteria are put to members of our committee who assess the acts and create a shortlist and choose accordingly – this approach avoids the event being cliquey and undue pressure being applied form certain quarters.
There may be a number of reasons why an act is or is not selected as it is a committee based decision and not the choice of a single person.
NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED AFTER 30th JUNE
Successful applicants will be notified by email on or around the 14th July. You may find yourself on the main stage or one of the other stages.
