Performer guidelines

Concerts and workshops

All performers, workshop presenters, MCs and dance callers donate their time in return for weekend passes. No additional fees are paid and accommodation is generally camping, or as arranged by the participants. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to arrange billets.

All concert performers at our two main concerts on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and the feature performers in the four chalkboard concerts must feature a banjo as an integral part of the music.

Official workshops must be banjo-based. Venues are also available for a limited number of informal workshops which can be advertised on a chalkboard at reception.

There are at least four chalkboard concerts for all sorts of acts (banjo not a necessity). Performers must have a jamboree pass of some sort and can sign up at reception. These spots are much sought-after and the concerts are hugely popular with audiences.
