How do I add a picture to my performance session?

Send the URL of a .JPG file to focomx_artist_help AT focoma.org.
The FoCoMX Artist Help staff will add that .JPG link to your profile. Please don’t send the file to us; we need a URL to the file.

How do I add a website or a bio to my profile?

Login to your profile and add a URL and/or a Bio there.

Note, if you login to your profile and connect it with your Facebook account, your “avatar” or profile picture will synch with your Facebook profile picture. Unfortunately, you can’t “use Facebook as” your band and change the “avatar” or profile picture to your band that way.

How do I get my/my band’s music on the FoCoMX SoundCloud playlist?

Add a song (one song per artist/band) to the FoCoMX 2012 SoundCloud Play List: http://soundcloud.com/focomx/dropbox
Do this even if you already have the same song elsewhere on Sound Cloud. When you add your song to the drop box, indicate if you want listeners to be able to download your music.

How can I promote my FoCoMX show?

FoCoMX SoundCloud: Add a song (one song per artist/band) to the FoCoMX 2012 SoundCloud Play List: http://soundcloud.com/focomx/dropbox
Do this even if you already have the same song elsewhere on Sound Cloud. When you add your song to the drop box, indicate if you want listeners to be able to download your music. These songs will be used to set up FoCoMX playlists that will potentially be sorted by venue, music type, etc.FoCoMX Venue Adventure Part II: The FoCoMX Promo Team will be taking to the streets of Old Town on Friday, April 6 to crawl from venue to venue, mingle with the locals, spread the word about FoCoMX and generally have a good time and get excited for the upcoming festival. You’re invited to join the good times and help us talk to fans about FoCoMX. Check out our Facebook in coming weeks for an event invite and more information on where we will be.
Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr: If you haven’t already, make sure you like/friend FoCoMX and FoCoMA on Facebook and Twitter and share your past FoCoMX photos on our Tumblr page! Feel free to retweet, share and like news from FoCoMX and help spread the word through your own social media sites.
Handbills: We’ve got a file for handbills that you can use to promote the festival in person. Download the file and print some out to help spread the word! http://2012.focomx.org/downloads/focomx_2012_handbills.pdf
