I'll most likely join in. It's just that I don't have any ideas for festival kind of music. Guess I'm not a festive person :P

I thought the same thing at first about myself. Then I sat down and started writing and so far it's turning out alright :) I'm sure you will also experience success :D

Well, I must admit to getting a bit lazy with my piece. That and I got frustrated a bit because of my inexperience with this type of music xD It really was a challenge. I'll have to practice more! Anyways, here it is!

Fireworks, Friends, and Beer!

Note: It may sound a bit weird at first because I have everything tuned to A=432Hz instead of A=440Hz!

Alright, it's been a long 3 weeks and everyone submissions are in! This topic was more challenging than some of the previous contests so great job!

soundsandstuff - March of the festival troupes
Our first entry provided us with something unexpected & simple, a little dark and mischievous but with a bouncy touch to it. I really felt like I was a little kid again and was ready to go wild.

Basisti94 - Harvest Festival
For someone who said they weren't the festive type you sure had me thinking I was in an old castle drinking with nobility and watching jesters make fools of themselves.

DanteUruzu - Fireworks, Friends, and Beer!
Although the song feels a bit short but everything fit seamlessly and is well balanced, this is defiantly one I would have no issues drinking to.

Brody - Country Festival
The fact you just got off vacation seems to really come through in this song. I was wondering if someone would attempt a Country style and here it is, there is a lot going on but the small touches really make this unique.

Each of you have submitted something that you can be proud of and I'd love to give you all 1st, however there can be only one. The Winner of Tune Contest #44 is DanteUruzu

It is a bit short, isn't it XD It was meant to be longer but procrasination got the better of me, unfortunately. But thank you BigHeadClan and soundsandstuff. And congratulations to everyone! To be honest, I was actually hoping that I wouldn't win this one XD

Hah you have hosted a few!

I almost passed it to 2nd place because it was so close, it kind of felt like I would cheat you out of the win though. But don't worry I'll beat you in the contest after this one :)
