Music in Common artist agreement
Thank you for your interest in participating in a Music in Common event. By submitting your request to perform you agree to the following terms.
If selected to perform, you agree to show up to the concert(s) you have been selected for. Regrettably, each year Music in Common has to turn away many musicians due to space limitations. Not showing up when selected not only causes considerable production headaches, it takes away the opportunity from other musicians to participate.
Each MiC event is different and unique. If selected, you agree to comply with the performance guidelines. These guidelines vary with each event and will be communicated to you via email by the event producer prior to the event.
MiC concerts are about community. Many of the musicians performing at any given event have never met before.
Music in Common, Inc. is a non-profit corporation. All performers agree to volunteer their time to perform at MiC events. Many concerts are free, some are ticketed, and all are open to the public. All proceeds from donations collected at the concerts, merchandise sales, and ticket sales help offset the production costs associated with the event as well as underwrite other Music in Common, Inc. programming.
All participants are responsible for their own travel expenses and for making their own travel arrangements.
By agreeing to participate, you are consenting to the recording and filming by Music in Common, Inc. of your performance and hereby granting Music in Common, Inc. the right to include your name, likeness, and the performance of your music in future promotional and commercially released materials including, but not limited to, CDs, DVDs, digital downloads, and audio and video clip postings on the internet.

You waive your right to be paid any mechanical royalties by Music in Common, Inc. for the composition performed that is included on said recordings. Music in Common, Inc. will have no rights to the recording or the composition beyond the right to manufacture and distribute such CDs, DVDs, and digital downloads for its own purposes. Proceeds from any sales will benefit Music in Common, Inc. in its mission to strengthen, empower, and educate communities through the universal language of music. Music in Common, Inc. will furnish two copies of any and all CDs and DVDs to each artist whose songs are included. Music in Common, Inc. grants the right to the artist to use the recording of their song for their own purposes, commercial or otherwise. Upon request, Music in Common, Inc. will provide the master of said song to the artist. Artist agrees to properly credit Music in Common, Inc. and its personnel on all commercially distributed products containing the master.
All concert participants agree to promote their appearance as they would one of their own shows utilizing their mailing list, website, myspace, etc. Please cc firstname.lastname@example.org when sending emails to promote your appearance.
MiC concerts that take place during the month of October are registered events of Daniel Pearl World Music Days (DPWMD). Your participation also constitutes a participation in Daniel Pearl World Music Days and will be registered as such.
