Mindil supports our local artistic community through providing various performing opportunities. We are looking for bands, solo artists, dance groups, circus, fire twirlers, comedians and anyone wanting to entertain a crowd.

Complete either our Performer Application or Community Application and our team will review your act and get back to you ASAP.

Can I just turn up on the night to perform?

It's a good idea to book a gig in advance as we are often full, especially from June to September. We can sometimes accommodate buskers and individual performers if a space becomes available on the morning of the markets so give us a call if you're in town for a short time and want to get involved.

Do I have to be a musician to book a space?

Mindil books a wide variety and level of performers and entertainers from fire artists, circus performers and musicians to brass bands, choirs and anything that looks interesting really! We also book lots of acts to keep families and kids entertained.

How do I book a gig at Mindil?

If you’d like to be an Entertainer, Busker or Street Performer please fill in the application form and send it back to [email protected] If you have any problems, call the office on 08 8981 3454.

What does it cost to perform?

The venue costs vary depending on the location, the nature of the act and other factors but you could book a buskers spot on Sunset Strip for example, for as little as $10 per night.


Learn about our location facilities

Many grassed areas are excellent venues for performance artists. We recommend bringing a rope to mark out your 'stage' area because the crowds get busy and people like to gather around to watch the show.

Community Space

Our largest performance space providing a ground level concrete stage and large grassed area for the audience with 3 phase power. We are able to provide a sound system, sound operator, and basic production needs for performances if required. Times will vary depending on other performances and events on the same evening.

Sunset Strip

This performance space is located on the grassed area between the beach and the food stalls. It’s smaller than the Sound Shell and we are able to provide a small vocal PA for performances but no sound operator. Artists will need to operate and supply all other equipment including lights, cords and adaptors.
