I would like to teach or present at Interfusion, how do I apply?

The Interfusion Festival Artist Lineup is currently full and persons interested in applying for future artist positions may submit their information and resume/CV under the application form here. Program Directors have discretion over the selection of artists of their respective programs and review applications when there is a need or opening to fill. Artist selections are made and approved by Program Directors with a vote of concurrence by the Board of Directors (BOD) from a resources and shared initiatives/values standpoint. Please direct all inquiries to teach, speak or DJ at Interfusion Festival through formal application.

What are Interfusion Festival’s COVID-19 plans?

The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. Interfusion Festival will follow all statewide and national health and safety policies. As part of our mitigation strategies, Interfusion has doubled the festival grounds and established a Health and Safety Team (HST) responsible for ensuring the protection of all attendees. Interfusion’s COVID-19 risk mitigation strategies and protocols will be published no later than 90 days before the next Interfusion Festival occurring on January 13 – 17, 2022.

What if the Festival is postponed due to COVID-19?

Interfusion is committed to ensuring the safety and protection of our community. In the unlikely event that the festival must be entirely postponed due to the return of heavier COVID-19 related statewide and national restrictions next January, all existing passes will be transferred to a new festival date and receive advanced schedule sign-up access. Interfusion believes this situation is unlikely to occur with the continued implementation and success of the U.S. National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic.

Will Interfusion passes be limited due to COVID-19?

The Interfusion Festival grounds has a capacity for approximately 5,000 persons at one time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Interfusion is limiting the next festival to 20 percent of full venue capacity with access control systems in place to enforce protection measures outlined by our Health and Safety Team (HST).

All festival tickets sells will close once the 20 percent capacity limit has been reached. In the event that the U.S. reaches projected 2021 vaccination levels and infection rate reductions, the HST will recommend the Interfusion Board of Directors increase the 20 percent capacity limit on festival attendance, in correlation with national and statewide public health measures at that time.

We love to hear from you.
