Hmm. Are you sure you've thought this through? 300 bands have played, say with an average lineup of 4. So that's around 1,200 people you're letting in free to the Limelight? :D
Actually, I've played UITA in two different bands. That sort of thing probably brings the average down a bit. Call it a round thousand. :O
Seriously though: a real milestone. The 300 bands shoots down the idea that gigging in Belfast is restricted to a small "clique".

Yes, we've thought it through.
I know it seems mad, but every 10 shows in when we release a CD we always invite back the last 30 bands that have played to come along for free.
This is just a bigger version of that, so we needed a bigger venue (hence Limelight)
There *will* be a system to it. All bands who have played will be contacted and they'll have to pre-register for a guestlist slot.
This could turn out to be a complete logistical nightmare but we'll give it a go.
Chances are a) a good portion of the people entitled to guestlist places won't register for them and b) a portion of people who register for guestlist places won't turn up.
If we hit capacity then so be it.
My advice is get down early.

Please note - a guestlist place does NOT guarantee admission, it just means you get in for free.
