SIGN UP IS NOW CLOSED. GOOD LUCK!

I assume some of you remember this from last year (late summer or whenever it was). Well it's back! For all you newcomers, this is a contest that I'm putting on (Gabe did the original), where you'll be responsible for creating a festival, which then will be pitted against other created festivals in a series of polls, resulting in one winner at the very end of it all.

Basically how it works is, for anyone who decides to enter this contest (I hope a lot of you will), you'll be required to think of a festival name, the lineup for your festival, making a poster, creating set times and then having all that be taken into account when the voting comes around.

Now for your convenience, I've made a PDF file (see below) describing the entire contest (the rules, how it works, etc...), so please refer to that before asking any questions you may have here (including questions about bands, posters, etc...).

The winner of this contest is going to receive a free t-shirt with his/her festival's logo on the front, and band lineup on the back, as well as three cd/dvds of your choice from my vast bootleg library (list will be provided). On top of that, you get bragging rights for being the best "cyber" festival promoter on these boards. Very cool.

If you're interested in signing up, PLEASE do so...I wanna get as many participants as I can. I haven't set up a deadline date for sign ups, but I will be posting one soon. So if you're interested, sign up early, so you won't be sorry later.

SIGN UP IS NOW CLOSED. GOOD LUCK!

*CONTEST RULES*

PDF Version (http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/contestrules.pdf)

HTML Version (http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/contestrules.html)

Please abide by the rules and stuff listed on the signup page to make sure you get entered correctly. Again if anything remains unclear or unanswered after going through the rules PDF, please ask here, and I'll clear anything up.

Again, right now there is no deadline date for signups, meaning no date has been set forth to start submitting posters yet. Stay tuned though!

can i make suggestion regarding this rule:


Prohibited Bands List:



Any band that is currently not together, and/or has not announced plans for a reunion, or is deceased. Examples include: Portishead, My Bloody Valentine, Pulp, Blur, Neutral Milk Hotel, Pink Floyd, The Verve, The Smiths, Orbital, Talking Heads, Cocteau Twins, The Beatles, The Doors, Sublime, Nirvana etc… (get the picture?)



If you are unclear whether or not a band on your list does not meet this requirement, contact the moderator of the contest for clarification. He will hold final decision on whether or not the band will be allowed.


I understand eliminating bands/groups that have a deceased member(s). But, perhaps we could allow only one reunion band/group, which all original band members are living and physically capable to play live, to our lists. I figure it will mix things up a bit more. I mean festivals have to have suprises. (exp. Rage Against the Machine/ The Jesus and Mary Chain, reunions)

Just a suggestion...

I agree.:2c I'll be voting again (... at least). (I'm not popular here so I don't think my festival will have a chance of winning. j/k I know it's not all about winning blah blah blah. Last year was pretty exciting, so many close fights and it was that time of year when many people in the old boards signed up for multiple user ids. Not me - I know vinylmartyr already confessed in one of the threads in this new board. (j/k vinylmartyr). Probably, do not allow lurkers to vote this time or that we select who will be able to vote ... :2c)

I just realized this is menik's contest ... let him does(/create rules) whatever he wants.

Actually Bosco, I thought about that idea, but wasn't sure how it would go over. I'll probably end up changing it to what you suggested, allowing ONE reunion band (as long as each member is still living). Good thinking. And for those thinking this is too early....actual poster making and voting won't happen for a while, but I posted this now, just to get people committed and thinking about it. I got 3 people in so far...

Bingo. Why do you think I'm getting so hammered in the animal fight thread?

Erik, this is kind of like Clear Channel organizing a "Coachella" festival in the fall this coming year without telling Goldenvoice first. But as A) I am not organized enough to run the contest this year, and B) I'm still a derelict in giving Trey and Dustin their co-grand prizes for last year's finals (don't think I've forgotten, guys), I have no objections to you overseeing it.

There aren't enough rules. This contest needs more rules. Choose 3 bands from Column A, 5 from Column B, something like that.

also last time we didnt have to make our own posters. I can't do that. Well I can but it would look like shit. Shit, shit shit.

Agreed. Listing every single band big enough to either headline or have second billing under the "one per day" list is bad enough.

Erik, ignore these calls for you to add bands. It's only going to make the posters more similar and the contestants lazier.

If I had it to do over again, I would put more bands on the "completely prohibited" list, rather than the "you can only choose four from this crowd" list. I'd cut Radiohead out of the running entirely. And I guarantee you that if you legalize Portishead, you're going to have at least 10 posters with Portishead on them.

Be firm. Take away the slam dunks. Make them work for it.

Why do you say that? Are there only two bands in the world who deserve votes?

Well, the choose your own adventure would be over because there was no next post. But seriously, why would you refuse to vote because of a provision that only seeks to make people diversify their line-ups?

Also, Erik, you should make a rule that scalpers aren't allowed to play. See you later, supreasskicker.

As the whole 'reunited band' thing goes...I'm thinking of setting up a page where you send in your whatever reunion band you wanna have play at your festival. BUT, it's gonna be a first come first serve type of thing, because I don't want 15 people saying they're gonna have Portishead, another 10 with Pulp and so on....it's pretty much (when/if I launch a page for it) gonna be send in your band, and if they're not already taken then they're yours, but if they are taken, I'll email you back letting you know. I dunno, something like that I guess...

and as far as eliminating bands or making more lists....I think I have a good idea going with limiting the big bands to three and one per day (same going towards the electronic acts). I don't wanna discourage people from wanting Radiohead or Tool or whomever to headline their event, but I also don't want the same headliners for every festival either. I'm still not sure if I should limit each band on that list to how many times they can be used and by how many people (like a draft I guess), I just don't want it to seem unfair. I dunno, I'm still thinking about it, suggestions help. If anything right now, I was thinking of adding a couple more bands to that list, maybe the Lips or someone.

AND, no, the appearance of the poster isn't being graded...meaning if you have a poster made in MS Paint compared to one from Photoshop...the Photoshop poster doesnt get more points or more votes or whatever just because it was made in photoshop....the votes should have nothing to do with that. The poster is just a way of organizing your event into days, giving it a name, and making it look official.

And yes, Brandon feel free to make some people posters if they aren't up to it...or you people out there who feel you don't have the skills to make a poster but wanna play, just contact Brandon, me, or someone on this board. This was covered in the FAQs section.

Also Gabe, you're right, I should of came to you (though I haven't been seeing much of you on the boards) before making this go live, since you were the originator of this idea last year (it was really an awesome idea). Anyhow, I'm sorry...if you have any suggestions or anything though, please lemme know, I'll make you like VP of this or something.

suprefan
02-15-2007, 12:08 PM
Well on the reunion thing, I know a couple of bands I want but do we get limited to only one reunion?

I want a cut of all your royalties. I want a better title than "VP" - I'm a Senior Vice President, at least. I want my name on the poster. I want ownership of the rights to the spin-off contests. I want to appoint my entourage in all the key positions. I want final cut, muthafuckas!!!


No, you gave me credit early on and that's enough. Just consider my suggestions (having done this in the past) and then put your own spin on it. You're prepared to go farther with it than I did, and that's for the best.

I like your idea of doing a random draft for the big bands - rationing them out so only one can be used at a time. I'm telling you, last year's contest was sweet, but there were too many posters that had Radiohead or Bjork on them. It's better for the contest if you make it more difficult to choose bands.

I really agree with this. I think it should be done with limited resources to really push creativity and to have unconventional headliners happen. Some of the big acts seem like too much of an automatic choice in certain situations. I woudl pick Radiohead for example but it ends up being a tired choice in the end though.. Anyway update on the reuinion thing, only 1 per day of the entire weekend?

My festival got lost last year. :(

It seems silly to me to have a draft for headliners because then it's just going to be who drafts who. For the voters who are deciding based on headliners.

How I voted last year was thinking of it as actually going to all of these festivals. And let me tell you, I got sick of seeing Radiohead. No one else seemed to vote this way, though.

Erik will you posting a list of bands that are not available that weekend because they are playing other shows such as the Live Earth gigs?

Okay, regarding the reunion band thing, I updated the PDF version of the rules to cover this in detail, but in short:

ONE (yes only ONE) reunion act will be allowed per festival, and there is going to be a web page (much like the one you are using to submit your participation now) where you'll give your name, festival name, and your desired reunion act (if you want one that is). The thing is though, each reunion band will only be allowed to appear at one festival each, meaning each participant must have a different reunion band from the next participant.

That means the signup thing will be on a first come first serve basis (date will be given, don't worry). If by the time your submission reaches me, and your band is already taken, I'll contact you and ask you to choose a new band to fill that slot. This is the easiest and most fair way I could come up with. Oh and more thing regarding this:

PINK FLOYD WILL NOT BE ALLOWED!

I'm still not sure how I should handle the headliner thing...I don't want 20 people using radiohead or tool or whomever, but I don't wanna ban those bands either, because afterall, they are definently headliners and do play festivals. There may be a draft or sign up page or whatever, I'm still open to suggestions as of now. I just wanna make sure we get diversified lineups. Because John is right, I'm hoping votes will be based on what festivals you would actually wanna go to.

Anyway check the PDF (and html enventually) to see updated rules and stuff, and keep signing up, I got 13 so far!

I want to do this contest its seems awesom.

I have a suggestion about the first come first serve.

Can there be a primary list of people who are going to do the contest. Then let everyone know who is in the contest on the same date to let you know the headliner? That way people who work and can't get to doing this until the evening get a better chance at getting their headliners?

menikmati
02-16-2007, 07:08 AM
Well I was planning on emailing everyone who signs up (I'm also gonna post the list of participants here) the time and date for submitting your reunion act. There's gonna be a webpage to do it, and most likely I'll set the date and time to be on a saturday or sunday (if that works for everyone?).

I still haven't decided how picking headliners is gonna go...I may not enforce any rules on it, and just let you guys choose your headliners (the 3 total, 1 per day max) off that list if you choose. If 20 people pick Radiohead, then so be it...just remember, that if you have popular choices as like everyone else, people will be less thrilled with your headliners and voting may rest on the smaller bands in the lineup. So you gotta be thinking about the big picture. I really hope people get creative with this.

So far 19 people have entered....where should I make the cut off? Close the signups after this weekend?

about the pre-selected headliner idea....

I figure you just let it go as is, dont do pre-selected headliners. Some headliners will often be repeated, but thats inevitable, there just isnt alot of headliners out there. Its all about the meat (non-headliners) of the festival that wins it anyways. The good, yet realistic, festivals will stand out.

i had a reunion question before i enter. does it have to be all original members? like what if you had three-fourths of the velvets? or what if somebody from the original lineup is dead? i don't mean like t rex cause it wouldn't work without the lead singer of course, but what if you had like the buzzcocks or the vaselines or somebody but with maybe without the original bassist because he's being a prick or just doesn't feel like it or whatever? does it still count as an "official" reunion? ok thanks. not trying to be contrary or anything, just want to make sure of the rules. thank you.

02-16-2007, 02:26 PM
ehhh...I dont think allowing reunited acts that only 75% of the members (assuming you're pretending some imaginary guy is gonna fill one of the spots) is a good idea. The reunion band can be any band where every member (whether they're original members or members who replaced other members later on (smashing pumpkins for example)) is still alive. I hope that's clear enough. I just don't want people all of a sudden reuniting acts saying "let's pretend Paul and ringo got two extra people to fill in with them).

I say we up the ante for the prizes as well.

Im thinking, all contestants can enter a $1 (or a little more) entry fee or something and the winner can win a $25 cash prize, along with the bootleg cds/movies and t-shirt. The remaining $7 would go to menik for his efforts in running the contest or to make the tshirt.

But now that i think about it, making the prizes bigger might cause fradulent voting:rolleyes

I really have to push for more than one reunion band here. Come on now.

suprefan
02-16-2007, 03:26 PM
I am ok with one, it becomes each persons signature on the festival. Too many reunions will dilute the quality of the entire concept of a reunion. Do we really wanna see like each fest have at least one similar reunion? It will be tougher and better to see 32 different bands put back together just for this. Choices become more diffcult if each festival has a different one, so then the question becomes which one do you wanna see the most?

hawkingvsreeve
02-16-2007, 03:31 PM
I would bet money that the reunions I want would be on less than 5 posters.

suprefan
02-16-2007, 03:33 PM
Still, one looks to be the best bet. I think the one I chose is not totally out of left field, but people would stop and think about it... Besides if somebody got yours before you chose, you have others to pick from..

Okay now to clear a few things up.

First off, I'm not changing the ONE reunion band limit. That's all you get, ONE band to reunite and put on your festival lineup. Be creative and make your pick worth it.

Now how is this reunion band picking gonna work? Well I'll be sending out an email to all participants explaining this (in case he/she doesn't read it on here), but most likely next sunday (feb 25th), sometime in the afternoon, the webpage (much similar to the sign up page) will go live, where you'll submit your username and your band you wanna reunite.

It will be a first come first serve basis, so if by the time your email reaches my server, someone has already claimed your band, I'll contact you letting you know that you have to pick a new band. This will continue until everyone (those who want a reunited act) have a band picked. At which point, I'll release info regarding posters. Again remember, you're not required to have a reunion band, but if you want to have one, you gotta go by my rules.

As far as set times go, festivals making it into the second round of voting, you're gonna be required to submit set times. Set times can be vital...because someone could love two festivals going up against each other, but one may offer better set times to catch their favorite bands. Again, more rules on set times can be found in the pdf.

And as far as giving away a cash prize aside from the cds and tshirt, i've thought about it and still might...but if people wanna donate (paypal?), I'd be up for that. Even just a dollar each.

Yablonowitz
02-16-2007, 05:34 PM
Erik - I don't want to belabor this point, but isn't the point of the contest to get people to decide which festival they would rather attend? When making that decision, you NEVER know the set times. So, shouldn't the voting be presented in the way a prospective ticket buyer goes about deciding whether or not to attend?

menikmati
02-16-2007, 05:38 PM
Bonnaroo offers set times before the event, in fact, almost all festivals do. Plus another reason for doing set times to make this competition a little more advance than the previous game. Organizing a festival with bands and set times is hard, so this game will be to.

yeas and another question. do collaborations count as one act or separate?
or can we even have collaborations? of course these would be ones that have happened before and are possible

menikmati
02-18-2007, 09:46 PM
I'm not gonna allow any elaborate collaborations (unless it's a known collaboration that has played before), and no, you won't be able to reuse any bands/artists in a collaboration during your festival. No repeat acts.

matsuolost
02-18-2007, 09:52 PM
yes no repeat acts. so if we want to have a collaboration. which we know have played together more than a few times and could even have a disc together. would that count as one act?

PassiveTheory
02-18-2007, 09:54 PM
What about, say, Tom Morello? Nightwatchmen Night 1, RATM Night 3? Is that allowable.

Also, must I resign hope to ever finding someone who can make me a poster for the contest? @__@

menikmati
02-18-2007, 10:04 PM
Having Tom Morello and then having RATM on the same bill is walking a fine line about having no repeat acts (for this contest anyways)...because if that is allowed, then people will want both Thom Yorke and Radiohead, or Jarvis Cocker and Pulp, and so on...so to avoid all of that, I'm gonna say having solo performances and then a performance from a band that he/she is in counts as having a repeat artist and therefore will not be allowed. Gotta diversify your lineup guys.

And yes, the collaboration would count as one act (as long as they're billed as the collaboration), but remember, you couldn't reuse anyone from that collaboration anywhere else in your festival.

menikmati
02-18-2007, 10:08 PM
about this whole repeat acts thing though...it's defiantly a fine line. You can have the Raconteurs and the White Stripes...I'm not gonna outlaw that (or other such examples)...it's just if you have major repeat artists - solo performances (such as solo Thom and then Radiohead), I don't think that's fair.

menikmati
02-18-2007, 10:15 PM
actually scratch what I just said..I'll modify it....if you want a performance from the nightwatchman and then rage, that would be fine, since Tom is not the lead singer of ratm....but if you want a solo performance from an artist (who also fronts a band), you have to pick...either the solo performance, or the band, you don't get both. But this will apply to only artists who are the lead singers of bands (such as Thom, Jarvis, Sting, David Byrne, etc). Does that make sense?

PassiveTheory
02-19-2007, 09:24 AM

Just a reminder to all participants, I'll be sending out an email (maybe some PMs too or a post in here) tomorrow giving the link to sign up for your reunion band (link will be "live" at noon on saturday). If you want to sign up a reunion band (this is your one chance to do so, a good reunion band can gain you votes) and the time does not work for you, then please contact me (either PM or an email) asap so I can give you my number so you can text me your submission.

Also continue checking the rules for updates on band lists and other stuff:

Hey, so this is a reminder to all participants that the reunion band sign up is TOMORROW AT NOON (PACIFIC TIME). Here is the link you'll use to sign up
for your band:

http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/reunion/nopinkfloyd.htm

This link will be "live" tomorrow at noon, so check back then. If the time does not work and/or you won't be on a computer at that time, you're allowed to send me a text message (please include board username along with band request in the txt) - but please either PM me on the board or email me (if you haven't already), so I can send you my number. (already heard from 3-4 of you).

Remember, this sign up is first come, first serve...so if you're worried someone might take the band you want, sign up as quick as you can once the clock hits noon time...I'll be judging who gets who based on the time the emails reach my server (or the time the txt finally reaches my phone). I'll contact everyone who sends in a request personally, letting you know if you got your band or not.

An important thing to remember...when using the sign up page, please do not leave any fields blank. Include your board handle (username - same one u used when you signed up), your email (same on u used when u signed up), and your choice for your reunion band. There is a field box for a second choice band...you may enter another band in this field as your "backup" choice (in case your first choice is already picked). If you can't think of a second choice band, please just put "none" in that second field box then....if you leave that field blank, your submission won't be sent.

I'll leave the sign up page up until Sunday (in case any late comers wanna submit a band)....once I close the page, I'll send out the link for the page to use to start submitting your posters. (you'll have about a month to finalize your lineup and get a poster created - so no rush).

Remember, signing up a reunion band is optional, but a good reunion act could gain you some votes and get you a victory in this contest...so use this opportunity wisely.

Again, the link is http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/reunion/nopinkfloyd.htm. Please check the rules (either the PDF or HTML version posted in the thread to stay up to date on rules, band lists ect...). GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.

Ok, you are finally now able to upload your festival posters by using the the link below:

http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/uploadfileform.cfm

On that page you'll find a field where you'll be able to browse your system, select the poster file, and hit submit (much like sending an attachment via email). The file formats that are allowed are .jpg, .gif, .png, and .bmp. NO PHOTOSHOP FILES.

I'll probably give all of you at least a month to think of your lineups, design the poster, and submit them, so there's no rush on this (like there was for the reunion band thing).

Important note for submitting posters - When you submit your poster, PLEASE make sure it's named "(board handle - username)_poster.jpg", it will make it MUCH easier in determining who's poster belongs to who. Also, if you submit a poster but wanna make a change and update your poster to something new, just name your new poster the same as you did the old poster and upload it, if it works correctly, it will overwrite your old poster, and there will be no problems!

Remember, YOU MUST have a poster to officially compete in the contest. If you don't have the skills and/or knowledge of creating one, either email me or ask someone on the board (hawking and others) and we'll help you out with one.

If you wanna view posters from last years contest, look here:

http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/2006posters.html

Anyway, again you have about a month to do all of this, so no rush. Remember, you're competing for bragging rights, a festival t-shirt, 3 free bootlegs of your choice, and maybe something to be named later. If you have any questions or anything, please feel free to email me or ask on the board. ENJOY!

you can make a poster if you want and go by the rules, but it'll only get used if someone fails to submit a poster or someone drops out.

And deadline is gonna be April 22, but there will be a email and stuff about this soon.

you mean what you name your poster file? if you were uploading it, it would need to be named "(board handle)_poster"

example for me:

Hey Menik, I entered my poster in, but I didn't notice that one of the bands repeated twice on the poster. Is it alright if I submit the corrected version?

yeah of course, you can keep submitting revised versions up until the deadline

I agree that this contest should be finished by the time coachella comes up. There have been about 2 months allowed for planning and you guys should be ready to go.

I say posters in by Coachella. Voting starts after. Stick with your dates Erik. Looks good.

03-27-2007, 04:33 PM
Again, reminder (and I will be sending an email to everyone soon), the deadline for poster submissions is APRIL 22nd (which is a sunday)...voting will start the week after coachella. I really hope I get stuff from all 32 (plus the reserves) of you.

how big should the poster be?

Mines 800x633 so around that size I guess, I think the poster rule is no bigger than 800x800.

But when I last visited such even admins couldn't do it.

Maybe they've figured it out/changed it since.

I really need to finalize my lineup. And find someone to make me a poster.

04-01-2007, 02:25 AM
No it's possible. I'm not exactly sure how it works, but sometimes when I either hover over a title, or click it in a weird way, an edit box opens up and I can change the words to whatever I want. I haven't done it ever. I just click out when that happens.

Isn't there an advanced edit function if you started the thread? I've changed one of mine before due to drunken typo.

PassiveTheory

Is there anything we can do before the reveal day? Like... have a "Guess the Contestant's Choices" contest? Maybe a "What band would you like to see the most on this year's posters" poll?

Yeah, no promotions for your festival/poster allowed...at least not publicly here on the board or chat room. When I'm not swamped with stuff, an email will be going out...

Got the e mail, yay.

Okay, I just sent out an email (to 30 of you) reminding you of poster submission...but I've lost a few emails, so here is the same message that I just emailed, for those of you who werent on my email list or just prefer checking this thread:

Hello all,

Sorry for taking so long to get this out, but this email is a REMINDER for everyone who has entered or wanting to enter, that posters (which are required to be officially entered in this contest) are due by Sunday April 22nd. That date is final. So if you haven't created/submitted a poster yet, I suggest you get on it.

The link to upload your finished poster is this:

http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/uploadfileform.cfm

There is instructions on that page, as well as inside the .PDF file (link on that page). If you don't know how to make a poster, can't (don't have time), or lack programs to make them, then you better get asking around on the message board (or asking some friend) for someone who does know how and will be able to make one for you. Just ask around on the board, I'm sure someone would be willing to help (me included).

So again, go by the rules posted on the upload page, and get your posters in by Sunday April 22nd (voting will start afterwards). No poster, no contest for you. You got a couple weeks, so get moving. Once again, the link to upload is: http://www.ebombfilms.com/festival/uploadfileform.cfm

-------

Also, originally there was 32 people who signed up (the limit) and then two dropped out (that were replaced)....for those 32 of you, I hope you remember who you are (if not, there's a list below)....I really hope all of you still plan on participating in this. I would love to get 32 posters...to make the brackets easier to assemble, plus to make sure everyone is going to participate.

Here is the list of contestants that are officially in this contest: (I hope you all remember to submit a poster)
