We are not looking for and will not include DJ performances.

Live acts should have a duration of between 30 and 45 minutes. All submissions must be made through our on-line form. Email submissions will be ignored. Mind that the setup will be a quadraphonic PA and one projector with a screen behind the performers’ position.
