Thanks Kevin - I also ran into https://artlist.io/ which offers their full list for US$199 per year including commercial use, which may work for some. George

thank you so much, that is the best advice I have seen anywhere. I hope that it helps many others too. For future years we will try to use local artists.

Have trawled the Forum for a clear steer on where we can access music that is allowed in the Festival - found reference to Big Bang Fuzz that was in 2011 when they were a sponsor. It doesn't appear this is still the case, and looks like you need to apply for a licence. We are a school team and it is important that our film and hard work do not get disqualified due to using music that is not allowed. Some clear advice would be welcome...
