Apply for Bush Bands 2017

Applications are now open for the 2017 Bush Bands Program!

Six bands from across Central Australia will be selected to attend Bush Bands Business (September 6-10) and then perform at the annual Bush Bands Bash on Spetmeber 10 in Alice Springs. This is a fantastic opportunity for your band to learn new skills, meet other musicians and perform on the big stage. It's a chance to take your music to the mainstream! 

Applying to participate in the Bush Bands Program is very competitive. Each year we receive applications from all across the Central Desert region and only six bands will be selected to perform. You must supply 2 tracks, band biography and 2 band photos with your application. Supply a support letter and video/YouTube links also strengthens your application and your chance to be selected.
