You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers! If you scored a wristband to this Monday’s taping with One Direction and Big Time Rush on New.Music.Live. OR you want more info on watching the show from outside MuchMusic then this is your one-stop blog for all your queries.
Please read the entire blog and if you still have questions you can submit them in the comment section below. We’ll do our best to answer anything that has not been covered in this blog.
IS THERE STILL A CHANCE FOR ME TO WIN WRISTBANDS?
Yes there is! We have a very small number of wristbands to giveaway. Be watching the premiere of all-new Degrassi episodes this Friday between 9pm and 10pm ET on MuchMusic. Lauren Toyota will tell you how you can get wristbands during that show.
I WANT TO ASK THE BAND A QUESTION ON WEBCAM! HOW CAN I DO THAT?
I WON WRISTBANDS TO BE IN THE AUDIENCE! NOW WHAT?
Congratulations! If you got wristbands, you would have received a phone call telling you that you won! You need to come down to MuchMusic on Monday afternoon no later than 3:45pm. There will be a line-up for people with wristbands and you will be brought inside and coat checked!
Really important – you MUST bring photo ID with a birth date on it. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you don’t have ID, you won’t be allowed inside.
I’VE GOT MY WRISTBANDS AND I’M COMING INSIDE! CAN I BRING MY CAMERA?
You can definitely bring your camera to take pictures of the band but, we cannot guarantee that Big Time Rush or One Direction will pose for photos.
Also, no professional cameras allowed. Basically, if your camera is huge and used by paparazzi, you will be asked to check it. If it’s a cell phone or small digital camera, you’re good!
WILL BIG TIME RUSH AND ONE DIRECTION SIGN MY POSTER/CD/BOOK/ETC?
Sorry, we can’t guarantee that the band will sign anything. We know that the guys are super excited to see all of you but, they won’t have time to sign hundreds of autographs.
WHAT TIME DOES THE SHOW START? WHAT TIME DOES IT END?
New.Music.Live. airs every Monday to Friday live at 5pm ET and is one-hour long.
The show will be over at 6pm but, if you’re inside, it will take a while to get everyone through coat check. You should be finished by 7 pm ET at the latest.
IF I DIDN’T GET WRISTBANDS, CAN I STILL COME DOWN TO WATCH THE SHOW FROM THE STREET?
Absolutely! This is MuchMusic, so we totally want you to get closer to One Direction and Big Time Rush.
Make sure that you wear warm clothes and dress appropriately for the weather. If it’s raining or snowing, you might want to bring an umbrella. Some bottles of water and snacks are also a good idea. We will have a large screen outside for you to watch all of the action and the bands will be coming outside to say hello!
CAN I SLEEP OVER ON SUNDAY NIGHT TO GET A BETTER SPOT ON THESTREET?
Sorry, no. We want to make sure that everyone stays warm and safe so we will not be allowing people to sleep over on the sidewalk on Sunday night.
You can begin lining up for a spot on the street on Monday morning at 7 am. No earlier!
MY FRIEND’S MOTHER’S COUSIN’S NEPHEW TOLD ME I COULD GET IN. IS THAT OK?
If you didn’t get a phone call from us and your name is not on the list, you will not be allowed inside. But you can still come down to watch the show from John Street! MuchMusic is located at 299 Queen St. West at the corner of Queen St. and John St. in Toronto.
ARE YOU SURE I CAN’T SLEEP OVER TO GET A BETTER SPOT ON THE STREET?
Yes, we are sure! Come on down on Monday morning at 7am.Tweet
