Throughout VAULT Festival, we’ll be sharing nominations for our Festival Awards, which recognise exceptional shows and the outstanding contributions of our artists each and every festival. We’ve been presenting and developing the awards since 2015, and they’re assessed by an independent panel of judges. Hear from our Head of Programming, Bec Martin about the nominees for week three:
“We are well into the depths of the Festival and I am so overwhelmed by the support of audiences, the bravery of the artists and the tenacity of the VAULT Festival Team.
Week 3 saw the first outing of one of our Plays from VAULT picks, our publication in partnership with Nick Hern Books. The volume (along with the 5 previous editions) is available for purchase at the Festival and online. Plus you can get some other kick ass merch.
The Lates are getting into full swing with some of the most fun parties kicking on til the wee hours on Saturdays and Sundays. Come join us, drink in hand, for some dancing and debauchery!
VAULT Festival Awards recognise exceptional shows and the outstanding contributions of our artists each and every festival. Week 3 saw VAULT Festival welcome 92 new shows. Once again each one of these deserves so many plaudits. Today we are celebrating those shows that have displayed singular artistic flair, changed audiences, innovated, moved and pushed boundaries.”
