- It is set in a room with 200 capacity, 120 seats realistically with additional standing room, and currently has 7 hours Friday and Saturday though we can easily shorten the hours to what you are comfortable with. The minimum we would want this to run though is 3 hours. You can ask for a break in the middle of your panel, for example run for 6 and a half hours with a 30 minute break in the middle for food, breather, etc.
- If you have lyrics to your music that play karaoke style on our screen that would be preferred. If not you will still be considered.
- You must have -some- Japanese music. Anime, j-pop, j-rock, anything as long as it's Japanese.
- You are allowed to play "american" music as well.
- RADIO RULES - No cursing, no suggestive, racist, etc language. We are a family friendly convention.
- You don't have to run both Friday, and Saturday but running both days would be ideal. If we cannot find someone to run both days we may accept 2 groups
- COMPENSATION - You will receive FULL weekend badges, completely free for those needed to run your karaoke panel. This can go above the general limit of 3 discounted badges, and still applies even if you only run 1 panel.
I know many conventions have karaoke groups, we've already sent out emails requesting their contact info. So get the word out there and ask your friends if anyone would like to become ACen's new Karaoke Panel!
You can send your questions and letters of interest to PanelProgramming@ACen.org or call 630-442-0008 between noon and 10pm central time.
