The nabokov Arts Club hits the Fringe! How to get involved...

That's right, for the first time ever the legendary nabokov Arts Club will be tearing up Edinburgh for the Fringe!

Join us on Saturday 11th August for the biggest party of the festival, and read on to hear how you could get involved...

The nabokov Arts Club is looking for unique and exciting acts for its first ever event at the Edinburgh Fringe on Saturday 11th August 2012. The Arts Club will be taking over multiple rooms at Summerhall with its trademark mix of live arts and partying that has seen sold out crowds and national press coverage for our recent events at BAC.

What we want:

We’re looking for comedians, poets, musicians, sketch groups, dancers, cabaret acts, circus performers – or anything else that you think might tickle  our  fancy. For this event we’re going back to our roots for a party with only one theme – the best of the Fringe. 

You’ll need to be available for a tech slot during the day of Saturday 11th and then of course your performance time in the evening. Please note that this is not an open audition for individual actors.

What we can offer you:

We’re interested in finding new talent for the variety of events that we produce, as well as offering a showcase for people to promote their Edinburgh shows. Although we may not be able to offer a fee for acts who we meet through this process, we are able to offer you the chance to perform at a unique event at a prestigious venue and to a large audience, as well as artistic support and advice. We hope that this could be the start of new and fruitful relationships with artists from across the spectrum.

Get in touch:

To apply, please email a description of your act and any  supporting  material  (reviews,  video,  photos  etc)  to before Wednesday 18th  July. We’ll try to get back to everyone who applies but this may not be possible if the volume of applicants is high.
