I think you're Australian.

I don't know if this applies to you. But, as an American, we are allowed to work at outdoor festivals in Canada without a permit, and I would guess that it is probably the same for Australians, perhaps more so since you are part of the Commonwealth.

What happens for us - we tell Customs we're working an outdoor festival and don't need a permit. They make us go wait in a room. They look at our passports. They come back and say, "you don't need a permit to work an outdoor festival."

Sometimes we need to present a contract that states the names of the performers, sometimes it doesn't matter. I'd have a contract handy, or a letter on letterhead inviting you by name and individually, in case you need it.
