Requests for programme slots have now closed!
Your options for performing now are the One Shots (a time when people can request to perform a single song each (or each group), or in circles. Or, of course, in the bar or any other space where people don't throw things to make you go away.
The Progress Reports page contains the draft Read Me for the convention, which includes pgrogramme grids for the con as well as short bios of the guests and other important information.
Those of you who have come to UK filkcons in the past will probably know
this, but it's worth reading anyway.
- Any recordings made are for personal use only. That means you can play them, put them on your MP3 player, and even play them for friends and family, but NO DISTRIBUTION without express permission of everyone involved (this includes the performers and the writers and copyright holders).
- Programme items are primarily for those present. This means that you must not hold up the performance to change a tape, or stick a microphone in a performer's face, or do a sound check.
- Recording someone is not permitted if they don't want it. This applies to concerts and to circles, if they say don't record this then don't record it. The same with video and photography (especially flash photography).
- Connected to that, unattended recording is at your own risk. If you leave the equipment unattended, someone else may switch it off (for instance if a no recording song comes up) and if they can't find the switch then may just pull the plug or battery. Or of course they may trip over it, or a child may eat it.
