The Ladybug Festival is a celebration of women in music, all acts for consideration need to identify as female. Bands with male members will be considered if fronted by someone that identifies as female. All ages are welcome to apply for consideration, we've featured artists as young as 11 and well into their 70's! Every year we make an effort to have a very diverse lineup in terms of genres. It doesn't mean we don't ever select artists in those genres, it just means we tend to have fewer acts in those genres than we do others. Reviewing artist applications takes time and resources. This fee helps make the Ladybug Festival possible. Since our event is free to attend and we have no ticketing revenue, this application is one of the ways we are able to cover the costs of putting on the event. Website produced by Trolley Web.

The Festivals section of The Unsigned Guide directory will tell you exactly how individual festival organisers prefer to hear from you. Make sure your social media looks busy and active — far more important than the number of fans and followers you have is demonstrating that you are proactive when it comes to gigging, recording and promoting your music.

A dedicated landing page on your website could include a biog, details of your recent releases, links to music, videos, photos and social media, plus your contact details — which will save both you and the festival organisers checking you out lots of time.
