Latest Post Nightride.FM - The State of Synth - S2E7 The Michael Oakley Effect by Dennis Gruetter

The Third Annual Echosynthetic Fest is coming November 8th and 9th to Atlanta, and though I'm not allowed to officially announce anything yet, I'll let the picture hint that we're moving from The Earl (home of the last two festivals) for our third outing.

If you're interested in playing the show, this is your opportunity to be a part of our biggest lineup yet. Again, I'm not able to officially announce anything yet, but we've got two synthwave tours making stops at the show this year...including some massive west coast talent. What does this mean? Slots are VERY limited.

Echosynthetic Fest is 100% door split. If the show does well then everyone gets some cash in their pocket. I don't have a cut. Once the venue, promotion, and staff are paid, every other penny goes to the artists who play. That being said, if you're looking to make a killing by playing Echosynthetic Fest, this may not be the show for you. We broke even the first year, everyone got a little something last year, but it's not going to fill your bank account. It's more about the experience of coming and hanging out in Atlanta in what can only be described as a family reunion. Even if you don't know each other personally, you're going to be family by the time you leave. The post-Echosynthetic Fest comedown to reality is for real.

Unless explicitly discussed with an artist on a super rare one off, I do not have the funds to get you here or get you back home. I know, it sucks, but this is not a for profit blog and it never has been. I'm a dude with a wife, kids, and a full time job on top of Echosynthetic, and any spare money I have will be going into making sure the festival can happen in the first place. On the flip side, I will be booking an Air BnB for any out of town guests that are interested in having a place to stay. In short...if you want to play the show, you gotta really want to play the show.

If you've read all of the above and you're still interested in playing, please drop me a line at: echosynthetic@nightride.fm. See ya in November, and more news to come once we get the lineup squared away!
