    Is the audience cleared after each show or can you stay for more than one performance?

    The audience is indeed cleared out afterwards so the next band can soundcheck.

    Are the sets still going to be about 30 minutes long?

    Are any of the live broadcasts archived? There were a lot of places to be during MFNW this weekend – it would be great to hear what we missed!
