Snake Oil Festival Performer Application
Please read this application in its entirety and complete all questions. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed and no refund will be given for any application fees paid.

Snake Oil is a variety arts festival. If you have a unique, interesting, insane, unusual, zany, sexy, sultry or crazy act that you feel fits the vibe of a neo-vaudeville evetn in New Orleans, we want to hear from you! UNIQUE and VARIETY are the key words here. We are interested in the best and most innovative acts that you have. This includes, but is not limited to burlesque, drag, sideshow, comedy, vaudeville, pole artistry, circus, magic, singing, hooping etc. Please be aware that due to liability concerns with our venues we are unable to accept fire acts at this time.

Performers may submit up to two acts for consideration with each application. Each act is not to exceed 7 minutes.

Full nude acts are not allowed in our venue, but racy and very nearly naked are fine. New Orleans is pretty open minded. A good rule to follow is that all costumes should contain a minimum of pasties, thongs, merkins, and or g-strings during all performances. We understand that accidents happen though :)

1. Fill out this form completely.

Two high resolution photos that best represent you as an artist. Should you be selected to perform in SOF, your image may be used in Snake Oil Festival online and printed promotional materials.

Name the files in this format: Your performer name, SOF, photo 1 or photo 2 .
