Get Involved

There’s more than one way to get involved

Pitch your work to Crack X

Applications to present at Crack X are closed for the 2018 Festival. Notifications to artists that have pitched will be distributed by late May 2018. The Crack X program will be announced at the TiNA-wide program launch in August 2018.


Volunteers and Interns

As a FREE Festival, we rely on a strong team of volunteers each year to help make the Festival an extraordinary experience. We need people with production and technical experience, administration and marketing experience, front of house and bar experience, and those with no experience but a whole lot of passion.
If you’re interested in volunteering or completing a placement with us, please contact us on to discuss current opportunities.
