Our booking tool - your options

Our booking tool allows you to negotiate reliable yet individual agreements for each concert. The offer can be negotiated until both parties agree and your host confirms the booking.

Fixed Fee Icon

Fixed fee

You know exactly what you are going to earn with your gig because the host has deposited the amount in advance on your secure escrow account. After the gig, your fee is paid out conveniently onto your bank account as defined within recommended booking framework.

Guarantee Fee Icon

Hat with guarantee

This is like a pledge which covers your expenses and gives you planning security while allowing some flexibility on your host's side. At the show, you pass the hat and your host gets their deposit refunded. If the donations exceed the guarantee, you receive the extra amount. The guarantee is paid out to you after the concert has taken place as agreed within the recommended booking framework. If there is less in the hat, your host carries the difference.

Hat Fee Icon

Hat without guarantee

With this option you pass the hat the concert and receive whatever your audience is willing to donate. While we encourage hosts to value artists' work by offering them at least a minimum guarantee when they invite you, you can still offer to pass the hat only when you take the initiative for the gig.
