Free Stage Musician Information
The Fringe Free Stage is located within the Beverage Garden which is on 11th Street East between the main Busking Pitch on Broadway Avenue and the International Craft Market in the Victoria School parking lot. Emphasis is placed on the generation of a casual, welcoming, family friendly atmosphere.
The Beverage Garden has a mixed audience of those who attend the festival primarily to patronize the Beverage Garden and those who use the Beverage Garden as a place to socialize after attending theatre performances. The area is divided into licensed and non-licensed areas so that all ages may attend the music performances. Licensed areas allow for minors if they are accompanied by their legal guardian.
Musicians interested in performing on the Fringe Free Stage can submit an application package to be considered by our Music Committee. To be considered applications must be accompanied by a demo CD, artist/band bio, and a description of your music. Submission of Press Kits are welcome as part of your application.
The application deadline is March 30, 2007. Musicians will be chosen and within two weeks of that date and will be required to complete a performance contract at that time.
Fringe Free Stage musicians
will be scheduled for one performance (generally two 45 minute sets).
Payment rates are as follows:
