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, 8 bands will play Friday night, 18 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 lesser.

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.

Thanks,
Dave Henninger
