During the festival we have 24/7 personnel in Fire First Response, Qld Police, Paramedics, Qld Fire and Emergency Services, and security along with festival organisers and staff. An Emergency Communication Centre (ECC) operates 24/7 during the festival to facilitate communications between these services. The patron hotline number (printed on the festival wristband) is the first point of call for any emergency onsite and is responded to by ECC. ECC will co-ordinate timely and appropriate responses to all incidents reported. Incidents will be escalated according to their severity.
If an evacuation is required, this will be coordinated in conjunction with Qld Police, Qld Fire and Emergency Services and festival organisers. Information will be communicated to our patrons in person, via text alerts, social media and through our PA systems.

Q: How do Artists / Presenters apply?
The Woodford Folk Festival 2021/22 has been canceled, and we are instead hosting our very small event, Bushtime.
It’s not the way we usually do things, but we will not be taking any expressions of interest for the upcoming December Bushtime. The programme is by nature, a tiny little jewel, and with risk assessment around presenting interstate artists, alongside the swag of artists we have had to cancel in the last 12 months or so, our greatly reduced team will be putting things together in a much more curatorial fashion. We are so sorry to disappoint anyone who had been hoping to throw their hat in the ring, but we think that this is a better approach than making an open invitation, and raising the hopes of many artists we won’t be able to include. Thank you so much for your understanding.
