Trying to find out how much material we need. Thanks.


EDIT: Sorry. Hardrockish and I just wanted to know the maximum time, they'd allow us. We don't have any gigs right now, or else I would ask the venue. My brother is getting us gigs in Denton soon, though. We are doing covers/originals.

Well what style of music do you play? Are you headlining or supporting?

if you supporting 5-6 songs will be just fine
Roses are red
Voilets are blue

Are you an original band or a cover band?

Those sort of things would be important to know.

Surely it would make more sense to find out how much time you have been given and go from there.


Agree; this is kind of common sense though.

If you are a small supporting band i'd say 45 mins to an hour.


That kind of time allowance would only be for a big show, I'm guessing our beloved TS has no more than 20 minutes maximum.

But that's just a guess!

In my town everyone gets roughly 30 minutes if you're supporting and 45 minutes if you're headlining. Not so great but oh well.

Meh, my old band did around 30mins when we were only playing infront of like 7 people. But we eventually got bigger gigs so we had to ramp it up to around an hour or so.

Guess it depends on the number or bands and shit.

Well it does yeah. If there's 4 or 5 bands needing to play in a single night then each band would only get about 20 minutes maximum; it just depends entirely on the show.

My old melodic thrash band used to rush through each song lightning quick without a seconds rest. We used to be able to get through about 5 songs in about 15 minutes without any post song banter at all; this kind of means it depends on the style of music and if your frontman / woman has anything to say to the "audience", or lack of, in many cases.

If you've only got a handful of songs, stretch them out and talk to the audience. If you've got lots of songs, talk to the audience before you start your set and just jam out as many songs as you humanely can.

Come down to the dirty south in cities like Bham, NOLA, Mobile, Atl, you'll be playing in some places for over 4 hours... I would murder an hour set

opener, thirty to forty-five minutes.
headliner, hour to hour and a half.

45 mins or less. Usually an hour slot, approx. 5 mins to set up, 5 min sound check, 5 mins to tear down.
