Freestyle rule is up. There is not much change from the last year. However there are added parts to be more clear. Please read well if you compete.
If you have any question about the rule. Submit your question here.
We are sorry for long waiting and thank you for your patience.
Here is the Official Hotel Info.
However, due to the season and area, we could not get any better deal as a group reservation. Moreover, online individual booking is cheaper in most cases. If you seek much budget friendly options, please find your own lodging. We listed some links on the page for booking hotels, too.
Here is the change.
Change about Connection to the Sound System and Power Supply
After several inquiries about connecting a contestant’s own music equipment to the venue sound system, we decided we will change the rule about this issue. If plugging their own music/sound system into the speakers that the venue/organizer has prepared is a necessary component to fulfill the contestant’s freestyle concept, we will provide one Line-In (mini headphone plug) input and one power outlet for the contestant’s use. Pre-approval from the AP Division judges and the contest organizer is required, and will be decided based on the performance concept description submitted by the contestant. Again, a sound/power connection will not be unconditionally given to all contestants, and must be specially requested and approved.
