When Scorcher Fest returns to Adelaide on 12 April, it will now include the option for acts who apply to have a live recording.

Having presented nearly 75 festivals on the Australian national circuit, Scorcher’s introduction of live recordings follows the welcomed and successful introduction of online tickets, which has removed any upfront costs to acts.

Also as a new initiative, YHA backpackers in each state will receive 100 free tickets the week of Scorcher in each state.

Adelaide’s session moves to The Producers this year to take advantage of their beer garden with Matt Vecchio on sound.

Online Applications are now open at www.scorcherfest.com.au for acts of all ages, genres and backgrounds.
