It was the idea from the start to show migrants and newcomers some love while on the other hand also having some of the well-established bands. Hence Rockfest 2016 brings you bands large and small, known and not so known, from many servers and from all over the globe (1).

This is the schedule so far (last update 2016.09.11) for Rockfest 2016.

All times are EDT (currently co-incident with /servertime).

Saturday 17 September

11:50 Welcome to the Saturday session (with Source the Motto contest conclusion)
12:00 The Traveling Bilberries
13:00 The Hope
14:00 Polnolunie
15:00 Shire Tramps
16:00 Radagast's Pipe
17:00 Bara Bahau
18:00 Die Mondbarden
19:00 Struck By Moonlight
20:00 Skarn
21:00 The Dulcet Tones
22:00 P.I.E.
23:00 The Fluffy Unicorns
24:00 (Sunday 0:00) No Whole Bard
25:00 (Sunday 01:00) Kapatek Anahuac
26:00 (Sunday 02:00) Purple Pipeweed Parlor Band
27:00 (Sunday 03:00) End of the Saturday session.


Sunday 18 September

10:50 Welcome to the Sunday session
11:00 Arda
12:00 The Crazy Ladies of the Forest
13:00 Notenzauber
14:00 Brandywine and Biscuits
15:00 Thunderstruck
16:00 The Andune Ensemble
17:00 Rockfest ends.

The venue will be the Bree-Land Festival Stage, Landroval(2)

Our LOTRO universe is blessed with many more able bands than it is possible to fit into a festival of this size and so inevitably not everyone gets to play. This program is in no way to be taken as a judgment on the quality of any band, whether they are on the list above or not. Music is not a competition.


(1) Well, Asia, Africa and South America are under-represented if they are represented at all which is due to me not knowing of very many players from those parts

(2)According to LOTRO Artists, the venue is not booked by others at the time of writing this.

9pm (server time) slot on Sunday.


As in 18. September, starting at 21:00 EDT? This Rockfest ends four hours before that.

As stated above, it is the intention to continue on Saturday for as long as possible (meaning the more bands that sign up, the longer we go on). If you are able to play late-ish on Saturday, and interested, please indicate at which times you are available.

Please use these forums instead. Registration is free and you can then subscribe to subfora and threads to have emails when there is a new poost, also there is an eggsellent Private Message feature for stuff which may not be relevant to the forums.

With ingame mail I have to manually make/keep copies for traceability and I'd rather avoid the eggstra work.

Thunderstruck would be honored to play at Rockfest. The band is available until 5:00 PM on Saturday and ALL day on Sunday. So, to make it easiest for schedulers, you can fit us in anywhere in those times. We're pretty easy.

Ah, sorry I missed that it ended so early on Sunday. No worries. We played Rockfest late on Sunday in the past so I just assumed this year would be the same time frame. Thanks anyways. :)

I checked with my band and we have enough so The Fluffy Unicorns would be able to do 2300 on Saturday the 17th! I hope I'm not too late.

Hello Mr. Hannariel,

No, you are not too late, as stated above:

The deadline for applying is no later than 23:59:59 EDT, August 24, 2016. After this, bands will be scheduled. In the case that there are more applicants than can fit in, bands will be selected by lottery.



This means no slots will be assigned before the deadline has expired. Please state if you Unicorns might also be able to do a later time - when the deadline is up, I'll see if the puzzle can be solved so all applicants get a spot, but if not we shall have to draw lots, which will be done during the Bird and Baby Yard Party on Laurelin on the 25th (the Yard party begins at 14:30 EDT).

SHAMELESS PLUG: The Bird and Baby Yard Party on Laurelin, Thursdays from 14:30 EDT(1). Everyone is alweays welcome to drop in and play for a bit, unless there is a Feature. Also, if you like you can be Featured Band for an evening, we try to have a Feature about every 2 weeks, and we can help with setting up & mentoring if you come from another server.

PS: With the free registration on these forums you can tick a box and get an email when something new is posted.

(1) this varies one hour those times of the year when Europe and Eastern US do not both either have or don't have Daylight Saving Time, the correct time is always 19:30 UK Time.

Yay, more bands signing up!
post #12632733:

Not sure if you are still choosing.

See the top post in this thread for the deadline (the 24th), after which we will try to fit in as many of those bands who've signed up as possible.

Also see the top post for the possible times, i.e. from 23:00 EDT on Saturday and onwards - please if you can state which times you are able to do.

Hello Ms. Toadflax,

I'm reluctant to play later than 2500. So I think we could do 2300 to 2400 or 2400 to 2500, but no later than that. After that we start losing band members because of times zones. The 2300 time slot would be the preferred choice, if we were allowed one.

We appreciate your consideration.

Thanks a bunch Hannariel, Telenn and Lasswen.

As a deadline for signups has been set, spots won't be assigned until the deadline has come - I hope we can then find a spot for everyone.

Telenn, it would be helpfulto know which times Kapatek Anahuec would be available to play.

And Lssween, if necessary, would No Whole Bard be able to play later?

Agago - Purple Pipeweed Parlor Band
Checked with all our members, and we should be able to play anytime. So any time you would need to schedule us would be fine. We are a new band and would be excited to get to play- actually it has taken us about 6 months to learn the ropes. We have mainly been hitting the crafting hall and other not so main stream places- just to get our name out there, and we love listening to other performers too!!! We are also just becoming familiar with what events are scheduled, and are not always timely enough with these schedules to actually get in- but it is all a part of still learning the ropes, at any rate it's great fun!! Either me or Keokee can be contacted via in-game mail, or we can be reached @ purplepipeweedkinship@gmail.com. Also have a contact form @ our website - http://lotrolandroval1.wix.com/purplepipeweed. Some of our rock material is: Rush, Led Zep, Santana, Jethro Tull, Police, Black Sabbath, Dream Theatre....

Yay, there are now five bands signed up in this thread already! So far it looks as if it will be possible to fit in all of you, but nothing definite until the deadline on Wednesday.

In case you don't have enough material for 55 minutes let me know and you can just play a shorter set if that suits you better.
