    I’ve paid to see many of the bands and performers featured in this year’s MOVE Music Festival, I’ve bought their records and merch and I will continue to do so. But the MOVE festival itself I can’t and won’t support. Almost all of these acts are being paid nothing to play MOVE, not even gas money for out of town bands. One band was told the could not play an unpaid show within a few weeks of their unpaid MOVE spot, or risk losing their spot. So they reluctantly gave in to MOVE’s demands, disappointing their most loyal fans and the staff/owners of the other place where they have a good relationship. So now MOVE expects those fans to pay to see them play for free? No, thank you. I hope the band I’m thinking of (and all the others) gets a lot of jobs out of this and signs with a big manager who believes in them so they never have to play humiliating showcases like MOVE festival again.

  2. Viv says:

    MOVE is a scam that benefits one person — the guy putting it on. No one should play this festival under the false promise of “exposure.” There is no exposure. You really think you’ll get exposure from being on a bill with 100 other bands? Or think you’ll get “discovered” attending a workshop with a couple of industry types? Please. This festival just exploits local bands and their fans who want to support them. Boycott MOVE.

  3. Justin says:

    I’m not disagreeing with either of these comments… but no one is forcing these bands to play for free. If they don’t agree with MOVE’s offer, don’t take the gig.

  4. Sara says:

    I’m pretty sure most performers know this isn’t SXSW, CMJ, or other well known music showcases that exist in bigger cities with larger and more diverse music communities. This is Smalbany. However, the event presents a chance to network with other musicians and be a part of the growing music scene, and people certainly do discover new bands. The 518 needs more events in general that bring in talent from the Northeast and beyond. Also, it’s good for business considering 10 venues are hosting all these acts, plus these folks gotta eat too. Festivals got to start somewhere, and chances are the money isn’t flowing in with big corporate sponsorships, especially when this area lacks a good amount of mid-sized music venues. And Justin’s right, too.
