https://fmna.etribez.com/ag/fmna/ai3abc/welcomeOnsite.html for the most up-to-date audition schedule and information, including the time you need to be in line by. You should plan on arriving as early as allowed at your audition venue.
If you received a wristband and a scheduled slot, be prepared to sing a song of your choice either a cappella (without music) or with your own instrumental accompaniment (e.g., a guitar). You should be prepared to sing at least two or possibly three songs. If you are called back to audition further, you may be asked again to sing two songs a cappella, one of which may or may not be from a list that will be provided to you by the Producer at that time.
