Whether you play for tens of thousands of people every night as part of a world tour, or 20 people at a backyard barbeque, most of the mental anxieties musicians experience while playing live are the same. In almost every case the negative little voice in your head is centered around fear (fear of rejection, self doubt, etc.). We all have experienced some level of fear or nervousness when playing live at some time or another. You may have felt a fear of failure, fear of making mistakes, fear of what the audience will think of you, your music or your band. Have you ever asked yourself questions like:

The FestivalNet Giving Tree

Our Giving Tree supports organizations working to make the world a better place. FestivalNet Staff members take turns selecting organizations to receive a percentage of our gross revenues. This month's charity was chosen by our Database Manager, Sara Potts.

Sara says of her choice, "My choice is Hand of Hope. It is a project by an organization (Joyce Meyer Ministries) that I regularly support, and have for years. They do great work all over the world, but this one project, Well of Life, provides wells and clean drinking water to over 25 countries. It is such a vital thing that we all take for granted."
