I have a great idea for the Festival, is there a way I can propose this and/or discuss this with someone?
We love great ideas and hope that you will use our online application form to put forward your idea. You can also email us with a brief outline and we can get back to you to discuss if that suits best.
What charges apply to participate in the Festival?
Contributors to the SALT Festival must all submit an application form, irrespective of their intentions for participating (this includes venues, food trucks, artists, and innovators). This initial application costs $50. Once your application is accepted, a further $100 for ticketed events and $30 free events will be payable for marketing, promotion and support, bringing your total application fees to $150 (ticketed events) or $80 (free events).
If you sell tickets for your event (excluding free events), there is a commission of 15% on non-licensed venues or events, or 20% at licensed venues or events. All ticketing is done via I Want a Ticket and there are a range of options for listing tickets.
If you sell any product/s (excluding food or drink) there is a 25% commission payable to SALT. 15% commission is payable on artwork sold.
Food trucks are invited to participate this year, with a daily charge of $25 going to SALT. This is exclusive of any additional charges for the location you choose to set up your truck, and permit application and additional fees may be incurred.
Our SALT organisers are happy to work with any contributors who have questions regarding what to allow for in their pricing structure.
Is there Festival funding available to contribute to the costs of projects, artists, innovators and conferences?
SALT organisers gather and disseminate information regarding several funding sources, sponsors and philanthropic supporters. We encourage individuals and organisations planning a project to look at funding that they may be able to secure, and the costs associated with your idea. And we are more than happy to work with you to make sure your event is viable. There is an opportunity to highlight what you require on your application form, and SALT organisers will be able to talk through options with you.
How long has this event been going?
SALT Festival began in 2017, and is an annual event.
Will there be a SALT Festival venue or bar?
SALT will have a SALTshaker venue where all festival artists, presenters and attendees will be able to meet, converse, experience art and interactive events and be part of the SALT Community. Please join us to share your stories, insights and ideas. If you have a performance or event that you want to present please contact us to discuss. Look forward to seeing you there.
May I take photos at SALT events?
Yes, unless otherwise stated. At events, personal cameras/phones are allowed, provided it is not disruptive. Attendees may take photos from their seats, as long as they are not obstructing views or using flash.
How do I book to do sightseeing in the district?
