4th Annual Music Fest In Celebration Of Second Life


On Monday 23rd April Linden Lab announced details about the upcoming 4th annual Music Fest in celebration of Second Life sponsored by Linden Lab. This June Second Life officially turns 15 and the lab are planning many fun events for this big occasion.

If you are a musician, band or solo act in Second Life then this is a huge opportunity for you to take part in one of the biggest celebrations in Second Life. It’s a paid gig apparently and everyone is welcome to sign up to audition.

The blog post reads this…

This June, Second Life turns 15 and we’re planning some fun ways to honor this long-standing community and invite some of the rest of the world to come check out what makes us so special! Stay tuned to this blog for more details about events to come and read on to find out about the first of many – our annual Music Fest – sponsored by Linden Lab.

In recent years we’ve taken the popular idea of music festivals and brought them into the virtual world – all the music, merriment, and good times without the sunburn. This year will mark the 4th annual Music Fest in celebration of Second Life – and we can’t wait to get grooving.

Since we started Music Fest in Second Life, we’ve held an audition showcase to highlight some of the musical talent in the Second Life community. Many of you have been performing for years in virtual venues all over the grid, and we’d love to have you come showcase your talent at the tryouts for this summer Music Fest. All genres are welcome! From bands to solo acts, rock and roll to electronica – we encourage anyone to sign up for consideration. 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!

Audition Sign Up Details 

To sign up for an audition, please complete and submit the submission form no later than May 18, 2018. 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).

All Residents are welcome to participate in the auditions as audience members. Again, I can’t stress enough what a great time it is to see so many musicians perform and support one another! For those who are interested, the auditions location will be shared in a future blog post. Showcase dates and times are as follows:

  • Friday, June 1, 2018 12 PM – 2 PM (SLT)

  • Saturday. June 2, 2018 from 6 PM – 8 PM (SLT)

Please spread the word about the 4th annual Music Fest 🙂
