Submission HARD Deadline is FRIDAY, August 12th, 9pm PT

If you specifically have never submitted to the guide before, you need to send me an email at therockstarlibrarian at gmail dot com with your name, email, and camp name asap.

If your camp has submitted in the past but YOU are new to the submission process, you need to send me an email at therockstarlibrarian at gmail dot com with your name, email, and camp name asap.

How do you know if your camp offering music meets the criteria to be in the RSL Music Guide?

Is your camp’s primary focus and gift to BRC music?

Would you call yourself a sound camp? Or a music camp?

Example: Rootpile – a bluegrass music camp where the stage and music is the focus and gift to the city. YES! RSL Guide!

Example: My camp is hosting a Grateful Dead Party on Thursday and we will be playing the Sept 21st, 1972 live concert taped recording at The Spectrum, in Philadelphia as part of our party. No RSL Guide.


My camp is a karaoke camp and we want people to come to sing daily. No RSL Guide. (though I love me some karaoke!)

If you are a camp that simply has themed events each day accompanied by (even DJed) music, your event is best promoted through the Who What Where When.

If you are unsure email me and ask me!

UPDATE: I have sent an email out to all my current sound camp music leads inviting them to create a login to my database, review the submission tutorial and then enter camp lineups.

That means YOU get to enter your lineups, edit them, and update them up until the HARD cut-off deadline of August 12th 9pm pt.

And since it’s been a minute since we thought about any of this…

Please please please do not wait until the last minute to contact me to submit your lineup to the guide. Do not send me PDFs of your lineup or in-email text lineups or promotional fliers thinking that is all I need to include your camp in the guide. The guide takes a village to create! So reach out early and let’s do this! WOOHOO!

xo, Kate

  6. It will be downloadable as always the TUESDAY during build week. It is ALWAYS released on Tuesday of build week. And you can find the link to download from this site, where I’ll post a new blog post with the details! No print copies this year – supply chain and paper and printing costs made it prohibitive, so print out copies to give out at gifts!
