Stendhal Festival open for artist submissions


The award-winning Stendhal Festival of Art has opened the application process for musicians to apply to play at this year’s event.

Taking place at Ballymully Cottage Farm on August 7 and 8, 2015, this year sees the Festival celebrate its landmark fifth anniversary and now is your chance to get on the already hotly anticipated bill.

Having already played host to hundreds of unforgettable performances from the likes of The Undertones, Paddy Casey, The Divine Comedy, Frightened Rabbit, Turin Brakes and more, Stendhal Festival of Art has evolved from humble beginnings to one of the can’t miss events in the Northern Irish events calendar.

The festival prides itself on finding and highlighting local talent that has maybe flown a little bit under the radar of the general public, so applications from anyone and everyone are being welcomed.

Just log on to, fill out the submission form and you could be on stage in some fantastic company in August.

Event Director Ross Parkhill says that the team is once again eager to hear from acts of all kinds.

“We really look forward to the submission process every year,” he said. “There are always hundreds and hundreds of fantastic acts to listen to.

“Whether it is discovering something totally new or being reminded of more familiar artists, it is always one of the most fun and enjoyable aspects of putting together the festival.

He added:  “We are looking for acts of all kinds as we continue to promote a multitude of genres by acts from all over Ireland, the UK and further afield.”

The Submission process is open now at and closes on Saturday, February 28.
