TOTAL FEST IX: OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS
Total Fest IX will break loose from its cage August 19-21, 2010 in majestic Missoula, Montana. We've officially opened the submission floodgates. We'll consider bands, one-person acts, special performance art outfits and the like. We're officially a music festival, but like creativity in all its forms.
To submit, we need a few things from you:
1) A good recording, CDRs are fine, of three or four songs that best represent your band. One CD is fine. Electronic submissions are a hassle for us, so don't email us saying "just go to our myspace, dude. It's all there." We are old, traditional, luddites who like the U.S. Mail, CD players and tactile experiences.
2) Some type of paragraph explaining your deal. Who you are, where you live, whether or not you like Hawkwind. We don't need a long list of the bands you've played with, but if a decent writer has written about your band, that's a helpful thing for us to have.
3) Good contact information for you (i.e. a phone and email address).
4) Your patience. We will listen to everything we get, discuss it, give it a fair shake and decide upon the bands and artists that most help us with our mission of Totality. Totally. Thank you.
