Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about applying for PROJECT WILD!
1. I’m a solo artist but I play with a band – should I apply as a solo artist or group?
If you are a solo artist you should apply as a solo artist. You will still be welcome to perform with a band at all the showcases, including bootcamp!
If you are a band, every member needs to sign the contracts, and be at every mandatory event and showcase. That is why a solo artist should not sign up their musicians unless they are a dedicated and consistent contributing member of the group!
2. What if I’m not available for all of the fall showcase dates?
It’s OK if you’re not available for all of them – we will ask the top 12 artists about any date conflicts with the 4 showcases and do our best to schedule around them. However, you must perform at one of the dates, and once it’s assigned no exceptions will be made.
3. One of our band members turns 18 in August, is it ok if we still enter?
Unfortunately, no – ALL band members must be 18 years of age by June 14, 2017 (the deadline to sign the participation contracts).
4. Can my video have edits?
The audio from your video must be live, one take, with no edits. However, if you have multiple camera angles from that take, that’s fine.
5. Do I need to download Aspera?
Yes. Aspera is required in order to upload your files. Be sure to save your application, install Aspera and restart your browser.
6. What genres are allowed to apply?
All genres are allowed to apply but preference will be given to the genres which can be played on WILD, specifically new country,folk,americana and roots.
