Contribute to MugStock as an act, workshop provider or other maker of merriment

MugStock takes place from Friday 31st July to Monday 3rd August 2020 with live music, walk about performances, workshops and special features over 4 days. In a typical year we programme 150-200 acts. We showcase talent from Scotland, the UK and internationally.

We are now accepting applications from acts interested in performing at MugStock 2020. To apply simply complete the form below. We are also interested in hearing from people who can add extra magic to the festival by bringing workshops, installations, walkabout performances etc.

Applications will be open until until 23.59 on 28 Feb 2020.

If you are interested in volunteering or trading at the event, or represent a charity there will be a seperate application process in due course. Join our newsletter to stay updated.

To apply you will need:
  • About 20 minutes
  • Links to your material or work online
  • A short biography (approximately 200 words)
  • a link to a downloadable high resolution image to be used for programme listings on our website
  • As much detail as possible about expected fees, tour party members, special requitrements and tech specs.

Please try to provide as complete an application as possible. We would rather you took the time to provide a good photo or upload a good track than sending an incomplete application a day or two earlier.

All applications will be reviewed and we aim to respond to each with a booking decision. We received almost 900 applications last year and expect even more this year, and our programming team are volunteers, so please be patient.
