Any artists performing with a band must be there no later than 7:45 to set up and must be set up by 8:30. Once the show begins, no band equipment can be set up or taken down until the event is over. In other words, if you have a band, your equipment may end up being the back line for any other bands performing that night. You will be responsible for working with the sound person at the venue to make sure everything is set up properly.
