EARLY SUBMISSION (recommended)
If you choose to submit your music early there are three options:
1. you can either email your files – the ONLY email address that will accept your files will be email@example.com .
2. you can click either of the ‘Upload Music…’ buttons on this page to share directly to our dropbox folder
3. you can email us a link from whatever file sharing application you use (Dropbox, WeTransfer etc)
When emailing please make your subject: SOLO MUSIC – (entrants name)
As an extra cross-check you can list each piece in the body of the email.
You must still check in at the desk so we know you are competing. Failure to check in may result in your music not being played.
SUBMITTING ON THE DAY
We will have TWO computers setup to take your music. Whilst every effort is taken to quickly help entrants with music, if there is a line up at the music desk there is little we can do. Early submission is the best option.
The volunteer at the music desk will check your music is named correctly and copy the items. Every effort is taken to quickly help entrants with music incorrectly labeled, if there is a line up at the music desk, entrants will be asked to wait until lines have cleared to get assistance with labelling the music correctly. Please bring a back up of your music either on USB stick or device (iPhone, iPad etc)
PLEASE ENSURE YOU BRING BACKUPS OF YOUR MUSIC EITHER ON USB STICK OR DEVICE (iphone etc)
Any queries on the process can be asked prior to the eisteddfod by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
