PERFORMER APPLICATIONS FOR 2017 ARE NOW CLOSED!
Thank you to everyone who applied. We had a record number of submissions this year and we are still working through them. If you haven’t heard a definitive answer yet on your submission, you should be getting a response from us soon. If you still haven’t heard back by August 1st, please get in touch with us.
Do you perform with fire? Play in a band? Dance? (burlesque, fire, go-go, belly dancing, etc.) Are you an experienced stunt performer or a skilled combatant that wants to thrill the mob in post-apocalyptic gladiatorial combat? Do you have some other kind of act that could entertain the post-apocalyptic masses?
Performers at Wasteland Weekend are volunteers (meaning they perform for free). But they can get comped admissions and other perks (depending on the type of performance and size of your troupe). And given the visual nature of our event, it’s a great place to get photos and video of your performance (and we always have great photographers with us in the wasteland). You may also get media coverage (we have local and international news and great online coverage every year), bands are allowed to sell their merch, and most importantly, it’s a hell of a lot of fun. (The event is 5 days long, and if you get a comped or discounted ticket to perform, you get to enjoy all days of the event when you’re not performing).
