Hey Fest folk,
I know you all have been patiently waiting for the schedule and it is done but we are waiting to get it tweaked for the wide world web so until then we are giving you a little taste of what is to come. Head over to the <a href="http://thefestfl.com/fest7/schedule/">SCHEDULE page</a> where you will find who is playing what day so you can tell whoever you need to that you will not be there on Monday!
We need quality, friendly, and hard working volunteers. We cannot make this event happen without the help from our community here in Gainesville. You not only get to gain experience, make friends, get a pass but you also get an exclusive Fest 7 shirt design no one else can have. Here is what you have to do to be a Volunteer. Head over to the <a href="http://thefestfl.com/fest7/faq/">FAQ page</a>.
We also are opening up the guidebook for submissions this year. Mainly interviews.
So I figured lets come up with 10 stock questions to ask bands playing. Here is how we are gonna do it! <a href="http://www.noidearecords.com/Fest/board/viewtopic.php?t=7518">We have opened up a thread on the message board</a>. Here we are asking you to submit your questions. The Fest 7 message board moderators will pick the best 10 questions and they will be sent to all the bands to answer. This could get really awesome or get really lame so my fellow Fest friends, don’t let me down on this one.
