WHAT IS THE CAFF TOURING LOTTERY?
While there is tremendous satisfaction in spending time performing on the North American Fringe Festival circuit – doing the work you want to do, seeing and being seen by other artists from all over the world, experiencing the Fringe environment from coast to coast – we also recognize that doing the circuit is difficult.
In order to make it just a little easier for you, the members of CAFF have gotten together to offer a one-stop application form for touring artists. You will still have to complete different information forms later for each festival if you are selected, but this opportunity will give you 8-10 months advance notice that you are (or aren’t) confirmed in each of the participating festivals you want to participate in. In order to be eligible to apply in this touring category, you must participate in no fewer than five member festivals in the following year.
To learn more about our Festivals, check out the Member Festivals page. For an overview of individual application processes, application fees, ticket price restrictions, attendance, and revenue returned to artists in 2010 for all CAFF Member Festivals, click here.
The 2013 tour is the twelfth year for this application category. We hope it will encourage more artists to make a commitment to performing on the Fringe circuit throughout North America.
