Band sign-ups will begin here on May 1st, and will last until May 15th. The full schedule should be announced on the 22nd of May, and the Fest itself will be on the weekend of the 12th-14th of June.
As with prior years, bands will have full 50 minute sets, with 5 min to set up, and 5 to evacuate the stage. All bands are expected to join the "Bands" channel for behind the scenes communication. All attendees are encouraged to join the "Event" channel for any chatter during the concert in the case that musicians will be using the "Say" channel for song lyrics. We will announce ahead of time any bands that are using lyrics in their sets.
Last years Shirefest and Winterfest both went super smoothly with no delays, we'd like to keep that up. Delays of a few minutes may cause another band to have to drop a song, or cause scheduling conflicts as people may show up to see a particular band play at a particular time.
In the interim, if anyone has any questions at all, feel free to PM Duidhrastir or I at any time!
Oh, and...Have fun!
