A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you within 48 hours.
In the meantime, do read our rules for open mic-ers: >>>
The acoustic open mic is open to solo, duo or trio groups only. That’s a maximum of THREE members. We provide 3 DIs and 3 vocal mics only. Bring your own instrument cables, keyboard stands and additional bookstands etc. if necessary.
Each performer/group gets 15 minutes or 3 songs max (including at least one original), INCLUDING SET-UP AND TEAR DOWN, but do prepare additional songs if you can. We might allow an extended set if it isn’t a fully booked night.
Starting November 2019, each performer/group will get 30 minutes or 5 songs max (including at least one original), INCLUDING SET-UP AND TEAR DOWN, but do prepare additional songs if you can. We might allow an extended set if it isn’t a fully booked night.
Be at the venue NO LATER THAN 8.15pm. If you arrive at 8.16pm, we reserve the right to not allow you on stage.
Make sure your guitar has a pickup. We will not mic up your guitar.
Bring your own microphone.
As we have very limited slots for each open mic session, please do let us know at least 2 days in advance if you have to cancel by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org – so that we can free up the slot for another performer. Otherwise we'll have to add you to our list of banned open micers.
Also, please note that there is a cover charge of RM20 (RM10 for the night's headliner, and RM10 for access to the venue's cheap menu) and no outside food and drinks are allowed – including water bottles. However, open micers do not have to pay but please let your friends/fans/supporters know about this.
The Live Bar upstairs opens at 9pm, and the Diner Bar downstairs runs from 6pm till 11pm.
Don't forget to register at the reception when you get to Merdekarya on the day of your performance otherwise we reserve the right to not allow you on stage.
Please send this note to ALL your band members so everyone knows what’s what.
Thanks and see you soon.
