SL18B registrations reminder: volunteers, exhibitors and performers

via Linden Lab

June is fast approaching, and with it, the 18th anniversary of Second Life being open to the public – an event market by the Second Life Birthday celebrations.

The Birthday will this year run from Thursday, June 17th through until Thursday, July 1st. As I’ve previously reported, exhibitor applications opened on Friday, March 19th.

More recently, applications for volunteers to fill the roles of greeters, hosts, or stage crew for the entertainment were opened, and on Friday, April  9th, applications for those wishing to perform at the event also opened.

Are you a DJ who can spin up a great party set? You might be one of the grid’s amazing Dance companies, or perhaps you’re a Particle Performer! Whatever your medium, we would love to hear from you. 
Fill out the official performer application form by May 28th and tell us a little about how you roll, and one of our Event Staff Leaders will contact you soon.

– from the official Second Life blog post call for performers.

The theme for this year’s celebrations is simply given as “Hidden Worlds”, with the Lab noting:

Your exhibit does not need to stay in theme. If you are inspired by the thought of the hidden worlds around you, show us! Or, share your Second Life passions with us. Your interests. Your communities. Your worlds! Every year we celebrate because of you, the amazing and creative Residents, who have chosen to call Second Life home. What has drawn you into this world and what keeps you here? This year at the eighteenth annual Second Life Birthday, show us what fuels your Second Life and inspires you. Let’s go exploring!

Those wishing to participate as performers, volunteers or exhibitors can find the relevant application forms and requirements / policies / guidelines at the end of the following links:

Note that all of these applications will close on Friday, May 28th, 2021.

SL18B exhibitor applications are open

June 2021 will see Second Life officially “come of age” as it were, as the platform celebrates it’s 18th anniversary of opening to public access.

Eighteen is generally acknowledged as the age of shedding minority status and of (if only in a legal sense in) reaching adulthood, as such this year’s Second Life Birthday (SLB) celebrations will likely acknowledge this in some way or ways – although we’ll have to wait to find out exactly how.

SL18B will run from Thursday, June 17th through until Thursday, July 1st, and Linden Lab officially opened exhibitor applications on Friday, March 19th. The theme for this year’s celebrations is simply given as “Hidden Worlds”, with the Lab noting:

Those who are interested in exhibiting at SL18B are asked to read, complete and submit the official exhibitor application form, which includes this year’s Exhibitor Rules. Note that the closing date for applications is Friday, May 28th.

Music Fest

A reminder that performers interested in participating in this year’s SLB music Fest, which will form the opener to the SL18B celebrations and take place between Thursday June 17th and Saturday June 19th inclusive, can still apply to be considered.

The Lab is seeking at least a dozen performers, both veteran Second Life musicians and those new to the scene, to provide the music for the festival, and full details on requirements / policies can be found in the Music Fest application form. But if you do plan to apply, remember, applications will close on Sunday, March 28th!

SL18B music festival auditions applications are open

June 2021 will see Second Life officially “come of age” as it were, as the platform celebrates it’s 18th anniversary of opening to public access – and around the world, 18 is generally acknowledged as the age of shedding minority status and of (if only in a legal sense in) reaching adulthood.

As such, this year’s Second Life Birthday (SLB) celebrations will likely acknowledge this in some way or ways – although we’ll have to wait to find out exactly how.

In the meantime, opportunities for Second Life residents to actively participate in official SLB events and activities are starting to open, with the first – as has tended to be the case over the last few years – being that of the Second Life Music Fest, applications for which opened on Friday, March 5th.

Now in its 7th year, the Music Fest has become the traditional opener for the official celebrations, and this year it will provide three days of live music entertainment between Thursday, June 17th and Saturday, June 19th inclusive.

The Lab is seeking at least a dozen performers, both veteran Second Life musicians and those new to the scene, to provide the music for the festival. Full details on requirements / policies can be found in the Music Fest application form; however, and in brief:

  • Previous sets at the festival have generally run to an hour in length, so unless otherwise stated, expect this to be the case.
  • Accepted acts are requested to be at the venue one hour ahead of their appearance, in order to complete final check-out with SLB personnel to ensure everything is ready for their set.
  • This year, there will be no payment for participation – however performers will be permitted the use of tip jars, subject to the festival policy notes.
  • All performances and song lyrics must be G-rated.
  • Applications will close on Sunday, March 28th, 2021.

As with previous years, final selection for participation in the festival will be via an audition process, details of which will be provided to successful applicants. However, note that application submission does not guarantee acceptance for audition; all applications will be subject to an initial review, and invitations to audition will be extended on the basis of that review.
