If slots are still available at the beginning of HavenCon 4, contestants may sign up for the remaining positions at Registration on Friday, March 30th. However, we highly encourage all to sign up ahead of time and submit their music so it can be tested for quality and content ahead of time.
This ensures you are not disqualified on a technicality before the event.
