Festival Entry Fees and Cut-Off Dates

We have an EARLY BIRD entry rate and a GENERAL ENTRY rate.

Since 2016 the SBF has implemented a sliding scale of band entry fees for the EARLYBIRD RATE, calculated on the proportion of time a band has to perform (i.e. the longer the performance time, the higher the entry fee). All General Entry rates are the same.

Please note: the SBF is a not-for-profit event. All revenue raised from band entry fees and audience admission fees goes to the running of the Festival and the various education programs we conduct throughout the year.
