If you love music, have a location and some friends, you can be a part of the festival!
Hosts pick up the minor costs of food and snacks if provided, and often do a potluck with the event. Part of the (optional) charm of house concerts is having the artist as an overnight guest, staying in your guest room (or a friend's).
Guests make a $10-20 suggested donation for the performer, and have the option to purchase CDs or souvenirs after the show. If you connect your concert with a charity, the donations will be handled differently.
Once you register as a host, you'll also be invited to participate in special private events during the festival.
