In place of an in-person conference this year, Folk Alliance International is hosting Folk Unlocked, a four-day virtual event for the entire international folk community to come together for panels, workshops, showcases, affinity and peer group meetings, exhibit spaces, networking, and mentorship.
FAI are unlocking the doors and windows of the house of folk to be as broad and inclusive as possible, inviting those who have been loyally attending Folk Alliance International conferences for years while aiming to reach folk musicians and professionals who have never benefited from or attended FAI before.
If you would like to apply for one of the limited Sounds Australia showcasing spots, please complete the following application. Applications are due by Friday 13 November:
Folk Unlocked will run from February 22 – 25, 2021. Registrations are now open if you’re interested in attending the virtual event.
