Seattle HEMPFEST® Event Registered Performer Information

For Acts Confirmed and Scheduled to Perform at the Seattle HEMPFEST® Event Fri/Sat/Sun, Aug. 17, 18, 19, 2018 (if you are not confirmed to play this year you are on the wrong page).

ALL STAGES MANAGER:  Law Ebert [email protected]

BACK-LINE and LOAD-IN:  HEMPFEST® equips each stage with a full professional quality back-line (including pro-drums). Scroll to the bottom of this page to view back-line list per stage. Acts just walk in with their guitars, kick-drum/effects-pedals (if desired) , personal drumsticks (if desired) and keyboards and utilize the back-line.

NO VEHICLES WILL BE ALLOWED into the parks. Band equipment will be shuttled into the event from Band Load-In by Band Load-In carts and volunteers.

Please find the HEMPFEST® event location by using the directions posted on  on the “Getting to Seattle HEMPFEST” page. 

Please, BE ON TIME. In fact, BE EARLY. We’ll do everything we can to get you on stage and performing in your time slot. Any special needs should be worked out in advance with the All Stages Manager. The full professional back-line provided on all stages is mandatory. Feel free to bring pedal boards, keyboards, bass drum kicks, even cymbals if you wish. A list of gear by stage will be provided.

STAGE PLOT DOCUMENT:  Fill out this document and e-mail it back to: [email protected] and/or hand it to your stage manager when you get to your stage (or 60 minutes in advance of performance time on day of event). PLEASE DO NOT FORGET! This will guarantee that we can provide you the best sound available and have a quick and smooth change-over between acts. There will be speakers on stage between bands and during your set-up. There is no dead stage time at a “protestival” as we are in it to win it.

SOUND SYSTEMS:  Main Stage, Hi Tunes, & Seeley Black Stage sound is provided by NAF Productions – [email protected]  Hemposium Stage sound provided by Dodge Sound – [email protected] – If you have special sound concerns or needs you should contact them in advance.

HOSPITALITY:  There will be complimentary hospitality snacks and drink available to performers/speakers only. Each performer can take full advantage of the complimentary food and drink in the backstage area of your stage. Band guests are not allowed to eat from the hospitality area but you can always share with your guests.

PROFANITY:  Profanity or racial epitaphs detract from the power of our message and does not help our cause.  The HEMPFEST® protestival rally is not in a club or a bar, it is in two public parks and there are children present.  We do not censor your freedom of speech. Acts wishing to be asked back should keep profanity and racial epitaphs at the absolute minimum. Acts with excessive profanity or racial epitaphs will not be asked back.

BACK-STAGE SECURITY:  Our backstage is where your equipment is secured and we want to make sure that we know everyone who’s enjoying the privacy of that area at all times. Passes will be required for access. We also want you to feel comfortable in our backstage hospitality area. Schmooze, network, make contacts, meet people, exchange cards, introduce yourself and make new friends there.

Thanks for being a part of the HEMPFEST cause! Sorry if we come off sounding heavy, it is a big job throwing the world’s largest cannabis reform rally. We absolutely have to pull it off pro and we need your help to do it. One day HEMPFEST will be a victory party, and we thank you in advance for supporting this essential cause.
