How Does Hosting your own stage at Open Tuning Festival Work? homescape.png

Know some musicians?  Got a porch, garage, storefront or front lawn, unique or great idea?  You’re on your way! 

Hosting your own Venue is an amazingly cool way to spend your afternoon and/or evening, presenting live music and performers to appreciative audiences and participating in this unique community-driven event.

2015 VENUE: R4 – Roots, Radicals, Rockers and Reggae

We promote all of our Open Tuning Venues through social media, posters and location maps (on day of event) and can even help out with musician recruitment if need be.

We will also be offering a pre-festival ‘Sound System Workshop’ where DIY Venue Operators can get professional tips and advice on what kind of PA or sound system gear you’ll need, how to assemble and operate it to optimize your venue’s resonance.
