On Friday 19th March Linden Lab announced that the SL18B applications are now open and that the 18th annual Second Life birthday will be held from 17th June to 1st July 2021. The lab have opened up exhibitor applications and the closing date is Friday 28th May 2021. The theme for SL18B is Hidden Worlds.
For those that didn’t know the SL18B dates have showed up on the Second Life Public Calendar for some time now. SL18B will be great this year full of live music, shopping events and birthday community exhibits.
The blog post reads…
Save the date! This June, Second Life will be turning 18! The 18th annual Second Life birthday celebration (SL18B) will be held from June 17th to July 1st. Get ready for fun-filled weeks of live music, performances, shopping, and amazing community exhibits!
This year’s theme for SL18B is Hidden Worlds, but don’t think that limits you! Just like last year, your exhibit does not need to stay in theme. If you are inspired by the thought of the hidden worlds around you, show us! Or, share your Second Life passions with us. Your interests. Your communities. Your worlds! Every year we celebrate because of you, the amazing and creative Residents, who have chosen to call Second Life home. What has drawn you into this world and what keeps you here? This year at the eighteenth annual Second Life Birthday, show us what fuels your Second Life and inspires you. Let’s go exploring!
If you want to participate as an exhibitor with a presence at SL18B then please join us by filling out the exhibitor form no later than May 28th. Please note that the rules for exhibitors have been updated this year, so it is important to read them even if you have participated in SLB before. The rules can be found at the top of the application form.
The upcoming SL18B Music Fest audition signup applications are still open until 28th March.
As a reminder, we are also still seeking Live Musicians. We previously announced a call for audition signups for the SL18B Music Fest – and those applications remain open through March 28th.
Over the next few months, keep an eye on our blog for more opportunities to participate in the SL18B celebrations as a Performer, Volunteer, Merchant, and more!
Please spread the word about SL18B.
