Band to Join.


Hi ALL..QUESTION!!!! Let's say every other month there is an event (so 6 events per year). There are 30 bands scheduled to play at these events as either an opener or a headliner (roles rotate through out the year). So i'm curious to know which sounds more appealing to you?
a) (Total of 30 bands) At each event only 5 bands perform.
- By the end of 6 events in the year, each band would have gotten to perform at least one time
- fewer bands performing at an event means a bigger concentrated audience. In other words, more people would be present during all of the performances than if it were a 10 hour event.
b) (still only 30 bands total) the first group of 15 bands perform at the first event, the second group of 15 perform at the second event, the first group of 15 perform at the third event, and it continues to alternate for all 6 events..
- all 30 bands are guaranteed to perform at least 3 of the 6 events
-This would be a longer event. The number of concentrated fans in the audience will be smaller due to them showing up at different times over the course of x amount of hours.
so i guess what i want to know is, would you as a musician prefer to be guaranteed 3 performances in a year, but most likely a smaller audience, or , a guaranteed 1 performance in a year to a large audience? And, what other thoughts do you have on this topic in general?
