Thank you for your interest in the India Festival! Unfortunately, due to huge interest, registrations for this year's festival are now CLOSED.
We often see cancellations before and during auditions, and as such, will be keeping a waitlist of performances! If you are still interested in performing, please fill out the form below and we will get back to you with availability by July 30th. We are extremely hopeful that you will still be able to perform.
Fill out the below form to register. Please only fill out the form when your performance details are finalized. Registrations will be taken on a first-come first-serve basis.
This year, in the spirit of celebrating Indian culture, we are especially emphasizing & requesting traditional, classical, folk, patriotic and ethnic items. We encourage you to be creative and share the uniqueness of your heritage with Portland!
In order to perform, you must attend a mandatory audition on Sunday July 28th. If you cannot make this date, please note below and we will identify an alternate arrangement.
Guidelines for Performing
- Each participant must pay a $20 participation fee ($10 for college students)
- Each performer can participate in a maximum of 2 performances
- No solo performances for individuals under the age of 12
- Items with less than 4 performers should be 4 minutes or under in length
- Performance length may be reduced during auditions in order to be able to accommodate all performances
We ask that you submit the name and YouTube link for each song that will be part of your performance (even if just a portion of the song will be part of your act). If there is no YouTube link for the song, please just enter the name and a brief description.
Know that we will be strict about separating similar songs in the show order, so selecting extremely popular songs may result in your performance being at a time you don't prefer. We encourage creativity in your song selection!
We may ask some of our most diverse and versatile performers to perform twice in the day, both in the morning and the evening, to cater to audiences who come at all times during the day. Please let us know below if you would be willing to perform twice!
