yeah I agree that it's nobody whining about this. it mainly stems from the booths where it's hard to even find a band name on the pieces of paper hanging on the wall. or a wall full of shirts. fair is fair, bring your a-game bitches and see ya in september.
It must be your personal magnetism.
There is a lot of sense made here. I definitely agree that 70/30 is fair. I also agree that API rules and goes through hell for us. I support their decisions. Also bring your A-game, what Dan said makes a lot of sense.
I'll do my best to bring my B- game...it's all I got.
Let's hear from the Gelgamek Flatstockers!
I have to say I agree with Tuffy and Dan, and it REALLY pains me to have to say that. I have looked at some booths in the past and had to scan for a band name. Always seemed a bit odd. Don't have enough gig posters to fill 70%? Then grab a sharpie and write 'Black Keys' on your art prints and what them fly out the booth....
While I agree with everything being said here, wasn't this rule always the case? I could have sworn I read the rule in the first Flatstock contract I signed. Granted that was only in 2010.
