The Gig

There are 30 slots of 2 songs or 10 min. each (whichever is shorter), including set up. After we fill all slots, we will create a standby list. If we finish early, someone from the standby list may be able to perform as well. Drum sets, like a trap set, take a long time to set up. We recommend hand drums and percussion instruments so you have time to play. You can plug your instruments in. Please keep track of your gear! The Green Room will have an attendant, but the BFUU is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

There will be a Green Room for you to tune up and relax. There will be coffee, tea and light snacks available, as well as free WiFi. Unfortunately this room is on the second floor and not accessible. If you are unable to climb stairs, please email as soon as possible. We will open a second Green Room on the first floor. These spaces are not for the general public.

Participate in the Festival!
