Dear Savages,

These are the rules we would like you to follow BEFORE and WHEN you open a new topic in this section.

First of all, use the SEARCH function, there might already exist a topic on your favourite band/festival. Hence this is of no use to create another one. :P

If the search isn't successful, then it's time for you to open a new topic: here are some rules to follow, to make sure the topic is clear to everyone :)

1) The topic title:

Make sure you put the type of topic you want to talk about:
[band], [festival], [tour], [artist], [music genre], or [debate] if it's a general debate. Feel free to send me a PM if you are not sure about your topic's title.

2) The first post

If this is a band's / artist's topic, please introduce the band quickly, with some informations including:

- Band style
- Bandmembers
- A short presentation (why this band is worth creating a topic for :P )
- A link to Myspace, the official website or Wikipedia (for example, for further info about discography, biography and so on)

It would be even nicer if we could get some direct links to (official, if possible) material, like videos, songs, etc

If this is a tour topic, please put ALL the tourdates available at the time, so that everybody feels concerned (and not only people of the most countryside-ish part of the world where one single gig is played :D ) + a link to the band's myspace/site (if we don't know the opening acts for example :) ). If some tourdates are added, please edit your first post if you're the topic creator. (Otherwise, post in the topic and we'll amend the first post as soon as possible :) )

If this is a festival topic, a poster would be nice + the line-up and the festival's website :)

About the music genre, maybe a short presentation? The genre's "leaders"? Something to start the discussion :P (Same goes with debates, but that makes more sense, doesn't it? :P )

Any newly created topic that doesn't respect those rules can be deleted or locked by the moderators in a short notice. This is surely a new constraint, but this will make the section clearer :)

Thanks for your support and participation, once again, don't hesitate to send me a PM to ask for more information, or to ask for some posts amendments :)

Your devoted moderation team :headbang
Maybe it's better for you, mankind, not to know what's going on!
