Calling all artists!

CresFest is dedicated to high-quality community music that inspires, connects, and brings joy to regional Victoria. We aim to offer a diverse selection of music, allowing CresFest attendees to enjoy and participate in special musical events throughout the weekend. We’re excited to see what you can bring to CresFest 2025!

We will program roughly 30 acts so places will be hotly contested. Community bands and choirs are an important part of our program, but as a young and small festival we are limited in the number of artists we can accommodate, so our offer to community groups is generally restricted to one day only in 2025, with limited free tickets and accommodation offered. These offers will be made clear to selected groups.

To get involved in our award-winning festival just choose from these application options: 

Professional Music/Dance Acts

Community Choirs

Community Bands/Dance Acts

If you are part of both a band and a Community Band or Choir, please complete two separate forms.

CresFest acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we live, learn and work, the Dja Dja Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation.
We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
