We want YOU!
We are looking for people who sing, dance, hula hoop, use LED flow toys, are in a band (or a one person band!) or any other live performance you might wish to share with the community at Dustcovery. Live performances will be scheduled from 8:30pm – 10:30pm. If your performance is a “go-go” dancer/performer style that would work to complement the DJs on stage, you might be scheduled later into the evening.
