Live at Koroit Artist Application Form

  1. This is a paid performance - but participants must cover all costs incurred by travel and accommodation.

  2. All prospective participants must meet and be aware of all of these criteria:
    • Acts must contain members who live, work, recreate or study in the southwest. Only acts whose members fall into these categories will be awarded a performance opportunity (at the FReeZA workers discretion).
    • No members can exceed 25 years of age or be younger than 12 years of age at the date application is submitted.
    • FReeZA events are open to soloists, duos, bands, and artists of all styles and genres, and is of most benefit to artists performing original material.
    • FReeZA events are not a “talent competition” and therefore not the right platform for DJs and dancers.
  3. Submission of an application inclusive of a CD, MP3s, photo or bio does not guarantee participation in the program. All applicants will be notified on whether they were successful by phone or email by Friday 21st February.

  4. At each FReeZA event, there is backline equipment provided for your use. This includes full PA, drumkit, guitar and bass amplifiers. If a drumkit is supplied, then you may use your own snare drum, kick pedal, hi-hats and cymbals. You also need to adhere to the strict stage times that will be clearly communicated to you before and at the event. All performers are responsible for their own equipment and no responsibility will be taken by the event organisers for any damaged or lost equipment.

    Should you wish to use your own equipment (ie: guitar/bass amplifiers or heads, drum hardware), this will be at the local FReeZA worker’s discretion. Please contact them in advance to discuss. It is important that all equipment is to be tested and tagged, as well clearly labelled; suitable verification is required for equipment collection.

  5. FReeZA events are part of a Victorian Government-funded program promoting safe all-ages events. A high standard of behaviour is expected from all artists and personnel who are involved. This includes:
  • Respecting the fact that all FReeZA events are entirely drug, alcohol and smoke-free.
  • Refraining from coarse language, racism, sexism or referring to drugs or alcohol from stage.
  • Working with security staff and event managers in matters of crowd control and safety.
  • Artists not coming in direct and unsupervised individual contact with young people.

Violation of the above behaviours could result in immediate disqualification, at the discretion of the FReeZA worker present on the day/night. In addition to the above behavioural clause, there may be other venue and event specific directives that the FReeZA worker will provide at the artist briefing.
