O'Heart Festival 2019 Performer Application

The O’Heart Festival is a three-day, Conscious Living-Indie Folk event. This festival is deeply rooted in environmental awareness (alternative energy technologies and sustainability solutions), Wellness (Conscious Living), and live music. The festival also remains a family-friendly event, as well as plastic bag and illicit drug free event. Our raison d’etre is to inspire a shift in Consciousness and be a part of making a difference on the earth plane – opening hearts and coming together. We want O’Heart Festival to be a time of nourishment, a time to be uplifted, a time of greater understanding, and above all a time to Awaken! We want people to feel inspired and re-discover what it is to cooperate, and what is possible when you live from the point of view of Heart.

O’Heart Festival delights in acknowledging and embracing the indigenous tribes and traditional owners of our area, the Bundjalung Nation, and the Minjungbal people. We want to be a part of the healing of what has gone before – moving beyond the past actions of humankind and creating new networks for healing, growth and unity.
This is not just another music festival… We invite all of our artists to stand aside from their usual ‘egoic’ point-of-view, open their hearts and be a part of this inspirational and wholistic current. Are you one of those people….? If so, please read the following carefully.

Application Process:
We welcome acts of many genres – from singer-songwriters, alternative folk to old-school rockabilly and Jazz Fusion. We want to create a music programme that has something for everybody. Once you fill in our online application form, our O’Heart team will review it and get back to you as soon as we can. (*Please note, due to the current size of our festival, not all applications will be successful. We are continuing to grow and expand each year to accommodate more artists. If your application is not granted, we urge you to please apply next year).

Some billeting will be available upon request for successful artists. Tyalgum also has a great campsite suitable for vans and tents which is very affordable. We will be able to provide further information about accommodation to successful applicants. Artists will need to provide their own transport to and from the festival.

Artist Fees:
O’Heart Fest is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and acts as a fundraising platform for the local community. We are in our fourth year and growing… As much as we’d love to pay all of our artists what they desire, at this stage, we aren’t able to do that. This gathering is a collective of those who have the same vision as us – to support the growth of something new and exciting.

We would love to hear what you could contribute and how you could help us make a difference – to be a part of a prototype for a new way of living on this earth plane. If you would like to be a willing participant in this years O’Heart Festival as an artist, please click here to fill out our online form.
