Getting into a show last minute is always a risky proposition. If you are able to get a space in a fair or festival at the last minute, that means they still have vendor spaces available. This could very likely mean it is not a good show because otherwise, all spaces would be booked well in advance (in some instances it could mean the event had a last minute cancellation, but that is not very common.)
We provide excellent data on 26,000+ events, but we have no control over the quality of each show, it is up to you to evaluate each event and determine if you think it will work for you (i.e. be a profitable show), before you commit your time and money.
An Electronic Press Kit, or "EPK" is a collection of materials used to promote your business, whether you are an artist, musician, craftperson, band, food vendor, other exhibitor or company. Your FestivalNet profile serves as your EPK. Complete your profile by adding bio, photos, music, videos, calendar and blog. The more complete your EPK, the more a promoter can conveniently learn all about you from one easy link.
In the Pro search full show details page, next to the promoter's email address you will notice this link, "Get Booked." Click there and select your choice under "Contact this event about applying" to generate an email from you to the event promoter with a link to your FN profile/EPK.
Use this link to quickly contact festivals you are interested in applying for. Before you use this tool, be sure your FestivalNet profile is complete. From the My Account area, you can modify your profile page (includes your bio), add photos, songs, videos, blog, and calendar.
This functionality needs to work with your default email program on your computer/browser, which you need to have set up first. You will have the chance to add more text to the email containing your EPK before sending the email.
