Frequently Asked Questions

Say what now?

If you’ve never heard of The Mp3 Experiment, read about it here.

What if I get to the event late?

Start listening at the start time, and you’ll get there when you get there. Be careful crossing streets, etc.

What if I don’t press play at exactly the right time?

If you can tell you are significantly off, ask to look at a neighbor’s device and try to sync back up to the correct time. You’ll have more fun if you’re more in sync. Those using the app should automatically be in sync with atomic time.
