Open Festival - Closed

Applications for the 2019 festival are now closed.

If you have applied this year, you will hear back before the end of June.


How we make our decision

We can’t support everyone, so to help our decision-making please do give as much detail as possible in your application. We may have to come back to you for further information.

We are looking for applications that give a sense of how attending Greenbelt might benefit you/your nominee and why the Open Festival scheme is absolutely the only way in for you/your nominee.

You might especially want to think about refugees and asylum seekers in your churches and communities who you could nominate and then bring.

We do sometimes support repeat applications over a number of festivals, but in those cases we are looking for evidence of a move toward self-sufficiency or development in that time.

If you are successful, you will receive a free ticket/s that covers entrance to the festival and the use of our camping fields. Greenbelt cannot provide expenses to cover your travel or any accommodation costs. If you will be bringing a car or camper van then you will need to include this in your application.
