Performer Form

Thank you for your interest in performing at our event.  

If you are an artist or have a band that wants to play Indy Irish Fest, our preference is to have you direct us to video of live performances. Please include in your submission, an all inclusive payment quote for a one or two performances per day. Tell if you are willing to include media appearances and/or demonstrations in our cultural area. Also include backline needs and a stage plot. Tell us what venues you have played in the past and currently and the dates/times of any upcoming bookings in the region. List web site URL and social media sites.

Our event will take place in a beautiful city park on the near south-side of downtown Indianapolis. We build the site from the ground up and are limited in what we are able to provide in terms of additional requests. We provide accommodations for out of town performers who must arrive early or perform late.

The festival does not cover travel costs to and from Indianapolis. These fees are part of the contract fee negotiations. Some bands, if they are touring, or if they get travel assistance from a government or other source, may improve their changes of being booked, but we cannot guarantee you a spot. Immigration, work permit and visa issues must be resolved without our assistance.  You must have a U.S. tax ID to participate.

Please understand that Indy Irish Fest receives many more applications than we are able to book each year to perform at the festival. We will book between 10-15 bands this year in the COVID reduced gathering. Since our first festival, we have made it a policy to promote our local musicians and dancers. We rarely book main stage acts that we are not familiar with or have not seen at concerts, other festivals, showcases and conferences, etc. but there is always a chance that an unsolicited application will result in a booking. It is a privilege to work with so many talented artists, but a shame that we have to pass on so many others.

Please complete these fields and submit your information to be considered for the 2023 festival.  Thank you!
