Artists & Traders

Nozstock loves to hear from up-and-coming artists and musicians that are interested in performing at the festival. Just get in touch and we’ll take a look and have a listen. Please bear in mind we cannot respond to all unsuccessful applicants due to the sheer volume of applications.

  • Applications for a musical performance at Nozstock 2024 open on 1st October 2023 and will close on March 1st 2024. Please note selections can be made as late as July. If you have any questions please email [email protected].

    If you wish to apply for a theatrical performance please see information below.

  • We programme three days of performances on our popular theatre stage in the Department of Cultural Affairs, as well as roaming performances across our site.

    The theatre functions much like a fringe venue, with plays, poetry, talks, debates, comedy, cabaret, games, family programming, workshops and everything in between all happily coexisting under one roof.

    Walkabout artists tend toward the bold, bright and brazen – the more playful and interactive the better!

    Please email us on theatrics [at] with information, images and a link to a live video or website if available – it needn’t be tailored to our 2024 theme (last dance saloon) but all the better if it is!

    Please note that due to high demand we do not accept submissions for our comedy stage and please do not email this address in regards to a musical performance. Any band or DJ applications sent to this email address will not be processed. Please complete the music application form above. Thank you.

  • Think you have the ideas that will awaken their imagination? Email kids [at] for workshops and kids entertainment.

  • Share your visual mixes with the masses. Send your demos.

  • The brightest creative sparks delivery colour, beauty and downright surreal imagery to every corner of Nozstock every year. From amazing stage designs, to quirky signage, we’re lucky to have some of the best talent on board. Ever seen such a carefully created spectacle? We didn’t think so!

    It takes time and dedication to bring the world of Nozstock, and its annual theme, to life, but if you’re bursting with ideas, have a keen urge to experiment and can be resourceful and willful in getting your inspirations beyond the realm of the imaginary, then Nozstock decor could be for you.

    We’re looking for collectives and crews as well as one-man-bands that are looking to spark off new creatives so whatever your level, we’d like to know more.

    Check out our Flickr to see some of the wonderful creations that have dotted the site over the years.

    If you can commit to regular visits to the farm from May/June onwards to create fabulous artwork, contribute to making Nozstock super cool and colourful and make friends for life as well as getting to enjoy the festival afterwards for free then  we would love to hear from you.

    Apply here. 

  • Documenting the festival is hugely valuable to us. If you’re skilled with a lens then complete our media application with a link to your portfolio. Please apply for either photographer OR filmmaker.

  • We also love to bring punters the high end of tasty local treats and tidy festival purchases. If you’re a stallholder with something interesting to sell or a practitioner with a touring workshop who is looking to share their skills complete our application. Any questions? Get in touch.

    For any trader or workshop submissions please fill out and submit – “Trader and Workshop Application 2024”.

    Got a question? Read our 2024 guidance document here.

    Applications will be reviewed by our trader management team and successful applicants will be contacted via our Eventree system. Please do not fill out more than one application per trader. We receive thousands of applications each year so do not expect an immediate response. It can take several months to make final selections. We may be in touch for further information.

  • If you have an idea for a sensory installation, a painting, interactive artwork, a sculpture or something amazing you have created that you want to share with Nozstockers please send a proposal over to us here
