Saturday Only
Sunday Only
Either Saturday or Sunday; We're flexible but prefer to play only once.
Both Saturday and Sunday; We'd love to play both days if there's space and time in the schedule.
All Weekend! We have our own separate setup and would like to play all weekend, if possible.

Setup and Equipment Requests

We have experienced crew, basic audio support and power at each of our Maker Faire stages. Please include your input list, additional equipment details and any special requests in the box below. If possible, we appreciate you bringing everything you need.
Please list the equipment you will be bringing and the inputs you need to be able to perform.
Our performance budget is extremely limited as Maker Faire is not a music festival. Maker Faire provides publicity, large crowds and excellent opportunities for networking and just having fun. We cannot give you what you might normally make in a club or music festival, but we may be able to help defray some of your costs with a small stipend for your performance. We can also offer you complimentary tickets so you can enjoy the Faire with your family and friends. Below, please let us know what kind of compensation you would like to receive for playing the event, both monetary and number of guest tickets.
Thanks for the opportunity to play! We are happy to play without financial compensation.
We will play for guest tickets only.
