Crossing Youth Stage @ Cobargo Folk Fest

In 2007 Daniel Champagne began his performance career on The Crossing Youth Stage at Cobargo Folk Fest

The Crossing voluntarily coordinates The Crossing Youth Stage at the Cobargo Folk Festival .  Over the last decade we have grown the stage from just 4 acts to almost 100 performers in 2017.

The 2018 Cobargo Folk Festival will be on the first weekend of March. Applications are now open for young people wishing to perform.  To apply to The Crossing Youth Stage go to

Performance slots are usually 20 minutes but shorter slots can be organised for first timers so always apply if you are interested.

Applications are due by 10 December.

This is a really supportive environment and every young person receives lots of encouragement.
