We have decided to include all 19 bands in the summit competition this year!
The original application listed the tentative schedule as 12:30 pm -4:30 pm EDT /servertime, which allowed for 16 bands. Rather than using the voting process to eliminate just 3 bands, we decided to include everyone and extend the show accordingly.
UPDATE: Following the bandleader vote to move the schedule forward, and one of the bands dropping out of the competition, we have revised the schedule as follows ...
Here is the REVISED schedule for Weatherstock IX, Saturday July 22nd (EDT /servertime):
10:30 am - 12:00 pm: LMB Mega-Band opening set (summit), includes PSAs/Intro
12:00 pm - 4:30 pm: Summit Competition (18 bands, 15-minutes each)
4:30 pm – 5:15 pm: Voting; LMB Mega-Band closing set
5:15 pm – 5:30 pm: Announcement of vote; encore set by winning band
5:30 pm: Mounted Procession to Bree Festival Grounds and/or Mad Dash to Bruinen (details TBA)
So, there will be NO voting process following the Weatherstock Concert Series this year. But all bands ARE still required to participate in the WCS to participate in the summit competition.
Summit sets are still 15-minutes each, as in previous years.
There is no pre-show at the Forsaken Inn, nor a procession to the summit. LMB will have a welcoming lag-buster set at the summit beginning at 10:30 am. So, all bands will assemble at Weathertop (to avoid lag if arriving 'late', it is best to arrive NEAR but not AT the summit). As in previous years, LMB will provide security/transportation services to cover this.
UPDATE: Following the bandleader vote and the withdrawl of one of the bands from the competition, we have moved the schedule for Weatherstock forward by 30-minutes. LMB's pre-show will begin at 10:30 am EDT /servertime, followed by the competition at 12:00 pm noon.
