If you’d like to sing at a Lockdown event...
Firstly, make sure you have everything you need. You need to:
- Wear Headphones/Earphones! (if you're using speakers, we'll get an echo and everything will be BAD)
- Have a Microphone that works!
- Have a Camera that works too!
- Be running Google Chrome (sorry, wider browser support coming soon!)
- Pick a song from this list
You’ll then need to connect to the Maraoke system to signup (and then sing) by heading to https://system.marao.ke/lockdown
During sign-up, you’ll be asked to do an automated "soundcheck" to make sure we can hear you.
(If you pick a song that's already been sung, we'll be in touch to ask you to pick something else.)
You can leave the camera off once you've signed up, but you'll need to switch it on before we can connect to you for your big moment! We’ll be posting the names of the next few singers in the Twitch chat throughout the evening, so keep an eye on that for when to enable your camera.
When we connect to you, it’s probably best to disconnect from the audience Zoom meeting if you’re on there and haven’t done so already, as well as stopping the Twitch stream, or at least muting it. To ensure the best possible experience, try to close as many other applications and browser tabs as you’re able to.
Have a great night and remember: NO-ONE DIES ALONE!
