This is the premier music festival for Generations X&Y, featuring 10 bands - 5 Gen X and 5 Gen Y.



This festival will bring together 2 generations over 1 great day of music. 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 presented well by a professional stage and sound situation, perform live on an art college campus for art-minded and open-minded students, receive space to sell merch and have the option of having their promotional item (such as a sampler CD, sticker, show flyer, etc.) distributed to all that attend.



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.
