Second Life Music Festival planned by Linden Lab for SL12B


Xiola Linden announced today on the Offical Second Life Blog that there will a Second Life Music Festival happening in celebration of the Second Life 12th anniversary. The lab are inviting musicians from across Second Life to participate and perform at one of the biggest celebrations in Second Life. It’s a paid gig apparently and you can sign up to audition here if you are interested. Submissions must be completed before Wednesday 20th May 2015.

  • Musicians will be selected to audition and will receive further instructions via email  
  • Successful musicians will be invited to perform a 30 minute set then receive payment 

Then the auditions goes public at Lavender Field on May 22nd (12pm-2pm SLT) and May 23rd (6pm-8pm SLT) 2015. It should be great fun and very exciting for those taking part!

Second Life is turning 12 this June, and we’re planning a few extra special ways to help commemorate a dozen amazing years with our Residents! You’ll have to stay tuned to this blog and our social media pages for all the exciting things as they roll out, but today we’re announcing auditions for … (drum roll, please) … the Second Life Music Fest – sponsored by Linden Lab – a two day music-extravaganza inworld to celebrate!

Second Life is full of talented musicians, and we’re hoping to draw out all you guitarists, bassists, drummers, singers, tambourine shakers and other music makers to come audition for the festival. All genres are welcome!

The Second Life Music Fest is an opportunity to perform at one of the biggest celebrations in Second Life, and it’s a paid gig!

To sign up for an audition, please complete and submit the submission form no later than 05/20/2015. While we encourage everyone to sign up, it is not a commitment on your part and does not guarantee a spot at the auditions. We will review all submissions and extend audition invitations via email to the designated contact. Each invited act will have a short audition time (5 minutes max) to play and leave an impression on a panel of judges made up of Lindens and Residents. This panel will select acts to be invited to perform at the Second Life Music Fest. Upon completion of a half hour slot at the festival, the designated contact for each act will be eligible for payment (subject to Linden’s terms and conditions).

If you are a musician in Second Life then this is a huge opportunity for you. Spread the word :)

Final goodbye to SL11B


Final goodbye to SL11B

Final goodbye to SL11B

Today is the last day for public viewing for the SL11B regions before the sims go offline next week. The breakdown of the sims will start from Sunday 6th July 2014 until mid next week. I decided to take one last trip to the sims this morning to take some snapshots of some interesting SL11B exhibits for the final time. See my SL11B blog coverage here and my SL11B snapshots.

For those that are interested in staying updated on future Second Life birthdays, join the new group called SLB Community Celebration. This group will be the new place for all SLB info and announcements. SL11B was a huge success from start to end with good coverage this year. The SL12B countdown has now started and planning for that will start in early 2015.
