Please email us (see below) if you have any questions or want to make sure we have a spot for you. But normally if you show up you can play.

Performance Guidelines

  • Your performance should 10-15 minutes in length. (max 20 min)
  • Bring a small setup no wider than 1.5m.
  • You must provide a mono or stereo mix of all your sound to the PA system. Bring you own small mixer and power bar. Bring 1/4" cables at least 2-3m long.
  • There are no monitor speakers. Bring headphones if you need to cue stuff. Do not bring speakers or amplifiers of your own.
  • No lighting or video projector is provided. Bring small projectors or lights as long as they will not be in the way of other performers.
  • We love high-powered laser light show projectors but please contact us if you plan to set up lasers, fog machines, or anything that could provide a safety / health hazard.
  • All performances are recorded and posted online. Tell us your artist name for posting. If you don't want your performance recorded let us know at the meetup.
