Applications are open to perform at SPRUKE Brisbane's Ukulele Festival 2019 at SunPAC. Be quick you've got to midnight 26 May!

Perform at SPRUKE 2019

The theme of SPRUKE Festival is Uke’n Make Music and we’re looking for performances that inspire as well as involve our audience in music making! We want to hear from solo acts, duos, bands, ukulele clubs, and schools.

Is there something you teach or your group does that enhances your playing, performance or experience with the ukulele? Make sure you let us know! Some performing groups will be invited to lead the audience in jams. If you are great at this, make sure you tell us.

SPRUKE — BRISBANE’S UKULELE FESTIVAL is on 13-15 September 2019. We have a new venue at SunPAC and the adjoining Sunnybank Sports and Community Club for 2019, which gives us some exciting new options for performing stages and workshop venues.

There are separate forms for performances and workshops. To submit an application to present a workshop go to our Application to Present a Workshop web page.
