Add any additional comments here_________________________________________
It is YOUR responsibility to make sure each and every member of your band will be available for ANY time
slot offered on either designated day. Your band might be first, it might be last. Simply put, there will be 26
great bands at this show, 6 bands will play Friday night, 20 bands will play Saturday someone has to play
first and someone has to play last. When planning the schedule, we will consider no slot to be greater or
We expect plenty of bands to want to perform at this event. We would love to have every band that wants in
to be able to play a set, but it will not be possible, due to time constraints, to have every band that wants in
to perform. So we have a selection process, in which a team of reviewers will determine which bands will
be invited to perform at this event.
Bands will be selected based on original material among other factors.
We wish to have a variety of different styles of metal bands perform at this event. Ours should be unique
and have something for all types of metal heads of all ages.
Participating bands will receive some perks, such as drink tickets, commemorative t-shirts with all the
bands names or logos on them, camping and all around fun.
Let us know if you have any additional questions.
