About the application form

Local gigs during the festival
Every year we aim to arrange small performances near the EWOB Festival venue in the town of Voorthuizen. Performances are acoustic only and not amplified. (restaurants, terraces).
Band transportation to and from the venues is arranged.
The EWOB Festival features different workshops each year. These may include guitar, dobro, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass, vocals and songwriting. Workshops depend on the availability and willingness of musicians to share their passion with others. On the form you may indicate if any member(s) of your band would be willing to host or assist in a workshop. Unfortunately we cannot pay a fee for hosting a workshop.
