Hawaiian Steel Guitar Showcase provides on occasion a virtual Open Stage Showcase for steel guitar players who wish to share their talents and performances in the Showcase. Announcements of future Open Stage Showcases are made here and on the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Showcase's Facebook page. All Hawaiian steel guitar players are invited to participate in the Open Stage Showcase by submitting one or more performance videos.
As with festival open stage policies, each performing person or group must include a Hawaiian steel guitar. Performances of Hawaiian music are preferred, but non-Hawaiian submissions will also be considered.
Please ensure that your submitted videos comply with HIMELE's quality standards.
Following these requirements will make it easier for us to incorporate your video into our program.
Devices that can be used to record your video include most Smartphones and Video Cameras. Please verify that your recording device meets the above standards. Some older video cameras may not be capable of recording at full HD resolution.
Most browsers support fillable PDF forms. If your browser does not support fillable forms, Adobe Acrobat Reader may be required to complete the form online. The form can also be downloaded and completed offline. Once completed, scan the form and send it to the submission address, below.
Please submit one completed form for each performance video.
