Performance Information: Know Before You Go
Performers can find information here on how to prepare to have a successful performance at AsiaFest.
Please submit music at https://forms.gle/yCesReDDu6zVG4un8 by April 24. Music must be submitted in MP3 format. All music must be submitted now, not on the day of the festival. We will not take USB drives or CDs on the day of the festival.
Loading permits are available by request. An email has been sent to all performers with information on how one may be requested.
Performers should park away from the Haggard Park parking lot in one of the other parking lots listed on the map below.
Performers are only offered the opportunity to temporarily use the Haggard Park Lot (in the below map, it is labeled by "Haggard Park parking lot is RESERVED") for loading and unloading only. Several spaces will be reserved for immediate loading and unloading only. This helps us reserve enough space for performers and vendors to move things in and out of the festival.
Only authorized people with parking decals can stay parked in the parking lot—performers will not be given parking decals, and therefore cannot remain parked in the lot. When going to the parking lot, please tell the parking lot attendant you are a performer.
NEW RULE FOR 2023: The Plano Police Department has directed us to enhance traffic management for accessing the Haggard Park parking lot. To enter the Haggard Park parking lot, you must come on 15th Street from the west to the east. You will then need to wait in the left-turn lane for the parking lot attendant to let you in. Traffic coming from the east to the west will not be allowed to right turn because it will cause a traffic jam and cars may get stuck on the railroad track, which poses a serious safety concern. Please consider taking 14th Street west until H Avenue. Then, right turn onto H Avenue and go north. Finally, right turn onto 15th Street to go east and get into the left turn lane into the Haggard Park parking lot. Even though performers are authorized to enter the parking lot for loading/unloading, all performers must enter by coming from the west going east and left turn into the parking lot. Due to safety concerns and instructions we have received from the Plano Police Department, ALL right turns will be rejected.
Checking in and preparing for your performance
Please be at the stage at least 30 minutes before you are scheduled to perform, because sometimes the schedule could move earlier or later depending on the situation. Please come to Haggard Park at least 1 hour before your performance.
Our stage is at the gazebo, so you'll want to check in with us at the back of the gazebo. We will provide you with more information on when you are scheduled to go up. Please note: You will be waiting near the gazebo, but not in the gazebo. The gazebo is reserved for the current performance and AsiaFest staff. After finishing your performance, please expediently exit the gazebo to facilitate a smooth transition to our next performance.
We have tents for performers to change their costumes. You may ask our performance coordinators about the tent when you arrive.
All performers are required to wear dance shoes and/or socks as the stage floor could get very hot. CAAHF and AsiaFest are not responsible for any injury caused by failing to adhere to this requirement.
Please wear sunscreen and bring a bottle of water, as the weather could get very hot. There are food vendors and business vendors in the park all day, so bring some money and enjoy Plano AsiaFest!
