X&Y Fest 2010

Driven Productions, Inc. is proud to present the third annual X&Y Fest on Saturday, February 20th, 2010 from 2:00 – 11PM at Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, Florida. This is the premier music festival for Generations X&Y, featuring 10 bands – 5 Gen X and 5 Gen Y.

X&Y Fest 2010 will bring together 2 generations over 1 great day of music.

Bands: Visit www.xyfest.com now to submit to perform. Solo artists, duos and groups of all genres are encouraged to apply.

Why perform at X&Y Fest? Bands receive a chance at their share of $500 in prize money, are eligible to receive compensation, are presented well by a professional stage and sound situation, perform live on an art college campus for art-minded and open-minded students and receive space to sell merch.

The $500 in prize money will be split between the best Gen X band and the best Gen Y band at the festival. Winners will be partially determined by the crowd through votes taken at the festival. Votes placed by crowd members will influence the X&Y Fest staff’s final decision.

One criteria for being picked to perform is bands must be able to pre-sell 20 discount tickets to the festival. If they fall short of 20 pre-sold, however, they will not be required to pay for unsold tickets. A band should either be confident they can pre-sell 20 tickets or that they can purchase some or all of them themselves to give away (or sell) to fans, family and friends.

Compensation: Accepted artists will receive $5 for each ticket sold (over 20 tickets in total), whether by pre-sale or walk-up day-of. When a ticket is pre-sold or purchased day-of, the person purchasing the ticket will designate which band they are going to the festival to see perform, allowing that band to receive credit for the ticket purchase.
