Andrew says: "I have a projector and some cables. If we got Steve Mokris to come again next year we could be mostly set".

Awesome, because I did talk to Steve, and he didn't seem to have any plans to stop coming!

A conversation on festival names. I like 'Northeastern Electro-Music" or "NEEM". Didn't the Indy one used to call itself 'MEME"?

How about this...

Rather than putting a focus on individual performances, how about putting an emphasis on collaboration?

How about a track where attendees group up, compose sets and then perform them near the end? We could group people who are less experiences with people who are more experienced.

Make it more about learning and expanding and less about watching others play... a more interactive experience than an audience experience

I don't have a strong opinion on this...just trying to thing out of the box and try to differentiate from other events.

Have read through the talk here. I would be very interested in such an event.

Where would I find more information?

My idea for Electro-Music as a whole and could possibly help raise some funds for the site and/or festival. Has anyone ever thought about bringing the Electro-Music compilations into the digital age? For example, I use DistroKid for distributing my music to streaming sites and digital music stores. It only costs $25 per year and gives you unlimited uploads. I can post as many singles or EPs or albums as I want and it within a week of uploading it will be up on Spotify, Tidal, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc. With DistroKid, you keep 100% of your royalties. What if we uploaded every Electro-Music compilation CD to sites and used the royalties to go toward an EM fund for the site and stuff. Of course, we probably won't be rolling in the money but it may help raise a couple of bucks for site upkeep and whatnot. I would love to have the ability to stream the compilations and it could help bring the music to a bigger audience and keep these comps from disappearing. Also Bandcamp is another great outlet. With Bandcamp, you can set a price or even put a "name your own price" option. Bandcamp does take a percentage from every sale and PayPal gets cut. Again, these may help raise some money. We may need EMers to pull together and get a proper lossless rip of each compilation as well as cover art. Distrokid even has a label option that is $50 per month, but allows you post releases under different artist names. In case we ever wanted to make a little EM label. I would love to help with this if any of these ideas seem interesting to y'all.

How does someone buy tickets to the 2017 Greenkill festival?
I tried the "how to participate tab om the website and it is closed.
I don't see any other place to buy tickets or reserve a room.
I would love to attend, but if the door to that is closed, such is life.

Hey Dan!
I haven't seen anything here re: Greenkill, and the link for the other events is a dead end. Weird. We could meet in Alderfer park parking lot and do something using car stereos 'till the cops chase us? Laughing

Edit to add: it may be that the fest organizers have concentrated their efforts on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/groups/38237692674/
