How to create your custom schedule in three easy steps:

1) Click "sign up" at the top of the festival schedule to create a login using your email address or Facebook account. 

2) Once you're logged in, click on an event to get more details and then click "Add to my Sched" in the top left-hand corner.

3) To view or print your custom schedule, hover over the circle at the top left of the schedule--the circle will either have a photo of you in it, or a silhouette. When a drop-down menu appears, click on "My Sched."

We check names at the door of workshops and of headline events that have reached capacity in the system. All other events added to your custom schedule are for your reference only and are first-come first-served. The schedule is subject to change.
