Submissions for Cabaret 2018

Submissions for the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival are now open.  Please be advised that as a strictly curated Festival, submissions are an expression of interest only – not a guarantee of selection. 

Before you apply, we would encourage you to look at past Festival programs through our archived websites (links to past festivals here) in order to gauge the standard of acts chosen by our Artistic Directors in the past.

All submissions will receive email notification upon being received by the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, however only successful entries will be personally notified by December 2017.  Due to the high number of submissions, we are regrettably not able to provide feedback on entries.  If we require further information, we will contact you.
