Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off Seeking Submissions for Musical Acts

January 31, 2012

Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off returns July 12th to 15th to Lamoureux Park and festival officials are proud to report that, as in previous years, this year’s event will continue to support and feature local and regional musical talent.

Local, regional, original, cover and tribute acts – solo, duo or group – in any musical genre are welcome to apply up to peform at this year's event. The deadline for applications is Friday March 30th, 2012.

Lift-Off has built a strong following due to its booking of top-notch headline entertainers such as Collective Soul, Chantal Krevizuk and Our Lady Peace. Sometimes headliners come with pre-determined operning acts, with other acts slotted in earlier in the day. Upwards of 15,000 people fill Lamoureux Park for these concerts.

How to Apply
Entertainers interested in performing at the 16th annual edition of Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off, are asked to apply directly to the Entertainment Committee.

Please be sure to include day and evening contact info, a brief bio including live performance experience, sample(s) of a live audio and/or video performance, a list of upcoming local and/or regional performance dates including location of venue, and reference list. The deadline to apply is Friday March 30th, 2012.

Due to scheduling constraints stipulated in Headline Artist contractual agreements, the Lift-Off organizers will only able to accommodate a select number of performers before each Headline Act. The number of opening acts that will be chosen to perform at this year’s festival will not be known until all Headline Artists are secured and contractual details are finalized.

All opening acts selected by Festival Officials are subject to final approval by the management of the Headline Artist. In the event that an opening act is declined by Headline Artist Management another act will be selected and submitted for approval until a mutual agreement is reached between both parties.
