SL12B Regions – (18th May 2015)
I will blogging more on SL12B in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned. :)
Over 55 avatars attended Bay City’s Seventh Anniversary on Sunday 17th May 2015. The parade was great fun down route 66 and the music concert in the North Channel region was excellent from start to end. I can’t wait for next year’s Bay City’s 8th anniversary. :)

The inworld meetup today with Lindens and Residents
On Thursday 14th May 2015 between 1pm to 2pm SLT Linden Lab hosted a special inworld meetup at the well known Basilique region with the Second Life community. This time over 100 avatars attended (104 was recorded at one point) and many Lindens stopped by to chat. There were discussions on SL12B, SS Galaxy the next generation platform and many more topics.
There was a live stream via YouTube of this inworld meetup and the meeting was done using text chat. There will be more meetups in near future and I hope to attend those. I did crash a few times but managed to take snapshots of the meeting.
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 :)
