The Fireside Live Stage (2022) 

This “Open Mic” stage is coordinated by Doug Chasar. Advance sign up available online, though Doug usually keeps a few spots open for walk ups.

Click here for available spots. 

This is a chance for you and your friends to put together a few tunes to perform on the Fireside Live stage. The emphasis is on friends, fun, and good music, not perfection. The sets will be 25 minutes, allowing for a 5-minute setup time between sets.  

Fireside Live is held in the Fireside Lounge (next to the bar) in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. It will be held Friday and Saturday from 7:00PM to Midnight.

Using Signup Genius, have the leader of your group create a profile.  Enter a name for your group, like "Blue Canoe," etc. Also include a mobile phone number if possible for contact at the campgrounds. This number will be seen by the FL Coordinator only.  Please sign up for only one time slot to give other folks a chance. If you check back on the day before the festival and slots are available, then you may sign up for a second slot.
