VAULT Festival is the world’s fastest growing curated arts festival, welcoming applications from artists and companies of all backgrounds (both UK-based and internationally) and experience. The 2019 festival featured more than 420 productions from 2,000+ artists in 18 venues throughout Waterloo, welcoming over 79,000 people through its doors.

VAULT Festival 2020 plays from 28 January – 22 March 2020.


Applicants can pick from a range of uniquely created venues to perform in, including large end-on spaces with raked seating, atmospheric tunnels, studio spaces, and site-specific pop-up venues. Venues range in capacity from single figures up to 172 seats, catering for most budgets and sizes of production.

Applications received will be read by at least two industry professionals and for the first time, to help make the process as accessible as possible, artists will be able to submit part of their application to VAULT Festival via video submission.

Early Bird Applications for 2020 will close at 6pm on 26th July 2019.
The Final Application Deadline is 6pm on Friday 8th August 2019.

Applying by the Early Bird deadline gives VAULT festival a much greater chance of being able to see your production if it’s on elsewhere, and a longer period for consideration.
