2019 SH'BANG Performer Application
Thank you for applying to perform at Sh'BANG! Each year we receive more interest and excitement from artists, and so we'll be curating the show for the best quality and diversity among performers. To choose among applicants, we'll be considering many factors, including: the performance medium, your locale, innovation in the act, etc. Ideally the festival will feature a wide range of acts from artists of diverse backgrounds.

Sh'BANG: A Festival of Ideas!
September 6, 7, 8, 2019

Lookout Arts Quarry
246 Old Hwy 99N


Sh'BANG is not like most festival models! It’s a festival made by artists for artists and is primarily volunteer run! Sh'BANG supports the creation and development of infrastructure for the Lookout Arts Quarry. If your act is selected, you will have access to on-site parking and camping, as well as delicious organic food from our volunteer kitchen!

Applications must be received by April 15th to be considered, and we will contact all applicants by May 15th with the results. If you are applying for multiple different acts, please fill out our application for each act that you'd like us to consider.

If you have questions, contact us at: performers@shbangfest.com

We have four permanent stages integrated into the landscape of the Lookout Arts Quarry:

- The centrally-located Cedar Stage (45' x 26'), built from trees and boulders pulled from the land
- The forested Saloon Stage, including two side by side stages (20' x 12' + 16' x 8'), surrounded by an elaborate fake Western town facade.
- The waterside Beach Stage (16' x 5.5') with a floating dock dance floor
- The renegade Pirate Stage (30' x 8') flanking the derby track
- The rotting Tripping Hazard (12' x 5') tucked into a hole between the trees
- The goblin-shanty Cartoon Caravan (8" x 4'), featuring puppets and clockwork machines

With no “main stage”, all the stages become hot spots at different points in the weekend. Additionally, we welcome artists to take initiative, creating impromptu happenings, leading parades, or collaborating with other performers, and exploring new ideas!
