The Cygnet Folk Festival relies on the hospitality of community members to provide accommodation for overseas and interstate visitors. Each year the Festival committee receives wonderful feedback from many of those who provided billets telling us how much they enjoyed having their performers stay with them. If you live in Cygnet or are within a 20-minute driving distance, we would love to hear from you.
We ask that breakfast be supplied to performer guests.
The Volunteer Thank You is held on Monday afternoon at a time and venue to be confirmed closer to the event. Catering and some limited drinks will be provided.
Free passes are offered to accommodation hosts on the following negotiable basis:
Registration to provide accommodation for performers can be made using the following form.
A number of our supporters are so enthusiastic that they apply for more than one role! Some volunteers are also billet hosts, and some billet hosts may be artists. To ensure the smooth operation of our management processes, we need to know if you are applying to help in more than one area. Thanks!
If you are asked to host 1–3 people, you will be offered ONE Adult Weekend Pass OR TWO Adult One Day passes.
If you are asked to host 4–6 people, you will be offered TWO Adult Weekend passes.
Please nominate your preference and specify which day/s if you wish to have the Day passes.
(If you are allocated 4 or more performers, the Performer Services Coordinator will contact you to confirm your desired pass options.)
Please note: Sometimes, when we have more single performers than couples needing billets, double beds may be occupied by only one person. Therefore, if two doubles are occupied by only two single performers, only ONE Weekend pass or TWO Day passes will be offered.
