Hello total world, Total Fest 2012 is upon us. Fortunately for us, 2012 is not the end of the world. Total Fest will happen this August 16-18 in Missoula, Montana, and we expect all of you total boys and total girls to be there. This is going to be one hell of the year of the dragon, and we plan on finding most of your rocked-off socks by the river this summer.

We're now accepting band submissions through April 1, 2012. As you route your late-summer tours, please consider that the best way to the Northwest from Minneapolis, or to the midwest from the west coast is on scenic I-90, via Missoula.

What do we want from you? The usual luddite feast: some tracks (CDR is fine; vinyl or other material is great), some great pics of you being a human being (please only one "occupy" photo per submission), a brief write-up of you and your mates (a review is ok), and reliable contact info (point of contact, email AND phone) for your band. Additionally, we're happy to accept mp3s via the submissions email mentioned below, but please don't simply send us links to websites and ask us to choose what to listen to; we appreciate you taking the time to select tunes that best represent your sound and making sure to include the additional items requested above.

Please send band submissions to:
