2014 FARM Performance Lane

 

About our Performance Lane

Our Performance Lane offers a limited number of pre-scheduled 10- minute time slots to be held simultaneously in 2 smaller conference rooms. These unplugged performances are a great opportunity to showcase and many non-official showcase artists have been booked based one song. Performance Lane takes place on Friday and Saturday afternoon as well as, immediately following the official showcases on Friday and Saturday night.

How to sign up for Performance Lane

It’s easy. Just register for the conference and select the box on the form indicating you would like a Performance Lane slot. Requests for these slots are filled in the order received up to the maximum number of participants we can accommodate, so REGISTER AS EARLY AS YOU CAN if you want a Performance Lane spot.

If you’re a band, read this!

Please elect ONE member of your band to sign up for Performance Lane on behalf of the band. Due to the limited number of slots, we ask that you choose between performing with your band or solo. We do recognize that there is a difference between backing up an artists and being a member of a duo or band. If you are at FARM in both capacities, we will allow you to appear in multiple PL slots as a back up artist as well as your own featured slot. For example, if Joe Singer wants you to back him up on mandolin, that would not count as a your one PL slot. However, if you are a member of Folk Band Extraordinaire as well as a solo performer, you will need to choose one or the other. Thanks for your cooperation.
