Song and tune writing competition

The Cygnet Folk Festival is proud to announce our Song and Tune writing competition!

Applications are now open until 30th November. Cygnet Folk Festival is offering a first prize of $500 for the best tune or song submitted. Enter the competition

ticketGood news for festival attendees is that prices for the festival have once again not increased: so yet again you get incredible value especially for a weekend ticket. Two and a half days of CONSTANT entertainment from approximately 100 wonderful acts!!

Don’t forget, if you are planning to camp, our camping at beautiful Burtons reserve does sell out so get in early!

As always, you can listen, dance, sing, hang out with the best people and join in for all manner of inclusive events.

If you can’t afford a weekend ticket you can get one by volunteering at the festival!! There are lots of different roles that our wonderful volunteers manage, and for 12 hours before, during or after the festival you are entitled to a weekend pass. Of course, if you’ve volunteered before you will know what a wonderful volunteer family that we get at Cygnet Folk Festival and Tanya and Zoe, our wonderful volunteer coordinators will welcome you back with open arms!

Also, if you live in Cygnet and have a spare room or two we are always on the lookout for billet hosts for our lovely performers. Billet hosts are also entitled to a weekend pass and tell us how much they enjoy getting to know our fabulous artists (and the artists ALWAYS tell us how special their lovely billets are!!)

Check out the Acts!
