Shirefest 2018

It’s almost time for the fifth edition of Crickhollow’s biggest annual event–Shirefest! We’re heading to the Methel-stage June 22nd-24th and plan to once again bring in performers from all around the globe (both in and out of Middle-earth).

Are you in a band? Starting a band? Just a fan of a fantastic band? Applications open up at 4pm EDT (server time/-4 GMT) on April 20th and everyone is welcome to apply. Although we will try and make sure every band gets one of the three times they list as their preference–and by some miracle, all 25 did last year–priority is given to those who sign up first.

Sign-ups will only be accepted on our website,

Come prepared with a list of 3 preferred times and a full range of available times. All time slots are for 1 hour including 45-50 minutes of performance time (plus encores if time allows). Hours include 11am-9pm on Friday, 10am-2am on Saturday, and 1pm-10pm on Sunday. We will not be filling all of those hours because our members would die of exhaustion, but we’d like to get an idea of what could work for everyone. We are unlikely to schedule slots at the earliest or latest times each day but may do so based on responses.
