    Hi: I represent several flamenco artists. Can you kindly provide the name and email address of the person responsible of talent bookings for your festival? I would like to propose artists for consideration.
    Thank you and kind regards,

      Hello there. Each year the Festival does a call for submissions usually in late July for the next Festival. Unfortunately, submissions for the 2014 Festival are now closed, but we will have our call for 2015 up towards the middle of summer 2014. Please feel free to email info(at)dancingontheedge(dot)org with any more questions and we would be more than happy to help.
