To keep our Festival entry fees low, and to ensure that we’re all part of a team effort toward a successful event, we charge a 10 percent commission on all sales. Artists are provided with a sign they are required to post regarding receipts. Failure to post this sign immediately, record sales in receipt books and inaccurate reporting of commissions will lead to immediate expulsion of artist, and non tender of any future invitation. Artists who did not complete check out at last year’s festivals will not be accepted into this year’s collection of events. Munch & Music is produced without commission on sales.
