USB Policy

PLEASE NOTE WE WILL NOW ONLY BE ACCEPTING USB'S FOR MUSIC.
PLEASE ENSURE TO HAVE USB'S LABELED AS BELOW.

Only ONE TRACK/FILE RELEVANT to the event should be on EACH USB. Sydney Eisteddfod takes no responsibility for error.

USBs should be clearly labeled with EVENT number & ENTRANT number using an appropriate pen. These details must be clearly visible.

 Note Specific to Dance Events:

  • Please write either 'ON stage' or 'OFF stage' on the USB to indicate when the music should be started: i.e. 'ON stage' = music commences once performers are in position on stage; 'OFF stage' = the music should start once the entrant is announced but before they enter the stage.
  • For championship events, clearly label the items on both the USBs e.g. Classical 1, Lyrical 2.

If the USB is prepared on a home computer, ensure it plays on standard devices. 
Please make sure that the music is in a MP3 or WAV Format (NOT M4A or MP4) 

Recommended Software: iTunes is available for both MAC & PC computers, free of charge. You can convert your music into MP3 format.

USBs will be returned. These need to be collected with the reports at the conclusion of each event. USBs will only be kept for one week after the conclusion of an event after which they will be securely destroyed and recycled. 

A second backup copy should be retained by the entrant and will only be called for should the first USB fail. Please refer to General Rules & Conditions 39 for more details.  In case the backup USB does not work, subject to the venue, a phone can be used as a backup.
