So, you want to perform
First, read the stage rules, then print out and mail in a signup sheet for your act.
It's really pretty simple. Send us an email at with a description of your band, a few links to your music and your phone number. Specify which days between March 20 and March 30 that you would be available.
Each of the 10 days will have a general theme. Please note that this is a 24 hour event. Some of you will be playing at 4 AM in the morning. Some of you will be playing 4 PM in the evening. If you must (due to work) perform at a certain time of day, please specify.
Sets during the daytime will be roughly 55 minutes long. Some sets with special arrangements can be half hour sets. Nighttime sets can be several hours long. Regardless of when and for how long, you must prepare more material than you can use since there must be no more than 5 minutes of dead air per hour.
Some musical instruments will be provided for you. We want you to basically plug in and play. Minimizing dead air time is critical.
A heated tent will be available out back for nonmusical acts wishing to contribute to this event. Such acts are not part of the record attempt itself, but are nonetheless appreciated.
