In the interest of full financial transparency and to promote transparency in performances:

  • Every performer will receive a $50 stipend for their set, hosts will receive $60

  • The crew helping put together the festival will also be paid

  • Everyone will be paid no matter what, any loses incurred will still be paid out by the Lead Producer

Supporting artists, both in providing space for them to perform but also financially is a core value of this festival.
