Thanks very much for your interest in bringing music to the gathering. Here are some things we want you to know:
Important things to know about how we administer the travel fund.
When you make your submission below you’ll be able to indicate that you’d like to access the travel fund.
As each stage producer makes decisions about their lineup they will reach out to you to let you know about the status of your submission and will start talking to you about calculating your needs for the travel fund. Even if you think you don’t qualify for the fund, please talk to your stage producer about any financial hurdles that might keep you from coming.
The stage producer will be your main point of contact all the way through the process and you should feel free to ask them any questions you have.
Lineup decisions will take a while to finalize, and that we know that in some cases you might not be able to commit to coming without travel fund access. In general, we won’t start confirming lineup invitations until a few weeks after submissions close.
On the submission form below, you’ll able to indicate that fund access is critical to you being able to attend and we’ll keep that in mind so we can get responses to you as quickly as possible.
What's the difference between the promo mix and the submission mix?
Your promo mix probably already exists. It's the general thing that you use on your Soundcloud etc account, and it's the mix we'll link to as we promote the lineup. The submission mix may be the same thing, but it might be something you select that's more directly in line with the stage you want to play. That mix won't be public.
I'm not sure which stage(s) to submit to. What do I do?
Please feel free to ask around on Discord or take a listen to past gathering recordings to get a feel for what happens at each stage. You can also check in with the producers on Discord.
Do I need to be queer-identified to play at/attend the gathering?
We care a lot more about what you think than who you have sex with. Regardless of how you define (or decline to define) your gender or sexuality, if you're supportive of and want to contribute to a queer-focused community building event, we'd love to have you join us. And any of our campers are welcome to submit to play music.
