First Timers is a season of workshops followed by a weekend of gigs where every band plays its first show.
We want to provide a supportive context for people new to playing music before, during and after First Timers season!
We celebrate demystification! All the bands have to be able to say yes to the following in order to sign up:
1. One or more of us has never played in a band before
2. One or more of us identify as one (or more!) of the following: female, trans*, queer, LGBTQIA, a person of colour
3. One or more us is playing something in this band that they have never done before
The festival is taking place on May 6th & 7th 2017.
