Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

We do not have a printed copy of all events because it is not an efficient way to present the information. You will ultimately only be interested in a small percentage of the 26,000+ events that we list.

However, with level 2 access you can create your own "booklet" of events to take with you on the road. As you search for and find events of interest, you can add those to "My List." Then, select the "Print My List" option to print your own personalized booklet of events.
    Here is an example:
  • To quickly create a list of events in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina that are 200 miles from Tallahassee, FL.
  • Use the State drop-down list and the Zip Code Radius Search.
  • Put 200 miles in the distance (or however far you travel) and your zip in the zip code box (32308 for this example).
  • Then pick a state in the State drop-down list (choose AL for this example).
  • Click "Search to View Events" and then click "Add All Events to My List".
  • Next click your Back button twice and change the state (for this example pick SC) and search again.
  • Now, again click "Add All Events to My List" and click your Back button twice.
  • Change the state (for this example pick GA), search again and click "Add All Events to My List."
  • Then simply click "Print My List," staple those sheets together and away you go!
Be sure to NOT add other search options as you will limit your search results. If there is something specific you know you want, like juried shows only, you might add a single additional option like that.

Member FAQs

You must have an account on our website to rate shows and/or promoters. If you are not a FN Member, you may become a basic member for free and then rate shows. Click the join link at the top of our site. Basic members may rate shows however to view individual ratings and comments, you must have a Pro account.

If you have an account, make sure you are logged in and from the tabs at the top, select "Events" and "Pro Search". Or from My Account, click "Find Events". Submit your search and in the results you will see ratings in the upper right corner of each event, along with links to add ratings. To find a specific show, use the "Key Word" field in the bottom left corner of Pro Search.

You will need to read and agree to the Rating Guidelines, available in the ratings form, to submit a rating. Click here to view our rating guidelines.

Also, check out this Rate Events page for events that have happened recently! You can sort by month and state to easily locate events and click directly to the rating form. Tip! Bookmark that page for easy access later!

Follow these steps to export your MyList:

A) First, have the events you want to export saved to your My List. (Remember, you can only export 1,000 events total.) Click on "View My List" to see how many events are in your list. To delete events, click "Delete" at the bottom of each event summary.

B) When you're ready to export, click "Export My List." In the box that opens, select 'Save this file to disk' or 'Save to my computer' and click OK.

C) In the next box that opens, you will see the name of the export file, the file type, and where on your computer it will be saved. It is best to save the file to your desktop. Be sure that the file type is '.csv'. If it's not, use the drop-down arrow to change the file type to '.csv'.

D) Click "Save." The export file is now on your computer's hard drive (it might take a minute if your file has many events in it).

You may open this file directly from a spreadsheet program, or import the data into a contact manager or database program. The import command is usually under File > Import. Your software will usually ask you to choose the file type (.csv) and which fields you want imported where.

Please keep in mind that each time you export your My List, the entire list is exported -- not only new events you may have recently added to the list. To export just a few events, those must be the only events in your list.
