This is the twentieth anniversary of Songfight on the internet. If you are a songfighter (anyone who has participated in the past) or you want to be a songfighter in the next month or so then you may be interested in the festivities. I'm copying a post from the board over at songfight.net

Hello Song FIghters!

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the birth of Song Fight! For many years, we’ve marked the year with an in-person get-together we call “Song Fight! Live”. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Song Fight! Live has been canceled. Womp womp.

BUT, we can’t let this year pass without some kind of celebration. So we’re still going to get together and enjoy the music of our Song Fight peers past and present-- but we’re gonna do it “virtually” all through the month of September.

What: Four livestream broadcasts of content from the Song Fight community, plus a special “live” fight hosted by our very own Fightmaster Senior, “Spud”.

When: Every Saturday in September, and the final Sunday, sometime around 8pm Eastern, venue TBA.
Calendar of events
Who: You! Anyone who has ever participated in Song Fight is invited to contribute content, and anyone with Internet access is invited to watch the stream and join the chat!

How:

Click here to join our mailing list for more information and to be alerted when the livestreams start!

Here are the types of content we’d love to share:
You playing a “set” of up to 20 minutes in length of your Song Fight hits
You playing an entry to the “live” fight
You covering someone else’s entry to a Song Fight
A music video that you made some time ago of a Song Fight entry
A video of yourself telling a story about Song Fight, such as:
Meeting a friend
Going to a Song Fight Live event
How you found Song Fight
What Song Fight means to you

FAQ:
Q: Do I need a ticket to watch this?
A: Nope.

Q: Can I host a livestream of my own during September?
A: Yes! Please do! If you let us know the details, we’ll announce it on the boards and on the front page of Songfight.org

Q: What format and resolution should the videos be?
A: We’ll make anything work, but the higher the resolution the better.

Q: Where will the livestreams be shown?
A: Probably YouTube, but we’re working to figure that out now.

Q: Will the livestreams be recorded?
A: Yes, we think so. But you won’t get to join in the livechat if you watch them later!

Q: What will you do with the video I submit?
A: We’ll show it during the livestream, and we’ll include it in the saved recording of the livestream. If you submit something, we assume you have permission to do so, and you’re giving us permission to include it in the stream.

I'm really excited to watch and chat with everyone, and I hope to see you (virtually) soon!

I will attempt to post the songfight live title/due date here at the end of the month. If anyone wants to join in they can. If you have questions I'll do my best to answer them.
