General FAQs, Member FAQs

In your "Pro Search" search results, show ratings can be found in the upper right corner of the summary box for each event and on the full show details page as well.

Any event or promoter that has been rated, will have yellow stars that you can click to view the ratings. Because our database is so large, many events & promoters have not been rated yet. Only Pro members have access to view detailed ratings.

Show Ratings Tip:
A good way to check on a promoter that you're not familiar with is to use the "More by this Promoter" link that's to the right of the promoter name -- clicking on this will bring up all the events listed by that promoter, so that even if a particular event is unrated, you can quickly scan to see how the promoter's other events rate.

An Electronic Press Kit, or "EPK" is a collection of materials used to promote your business, whether you are an artist, musician, craftperson, band, food vendor, other exhibitor or company. Your FestivalNet profile serves as your EPK. Complete your profile by adding bio, photos, music, videos, calendar and blog. The more complete your EPK, the more a promoter can conveniently learn all about you from one easy link.

In the Pro search full show details page, next to the promoter's email address you will notice this link, "Get Booked." Click there and select your choice under "Contact this event about applying" to generate an email from you to the event promoter with a link to your FN profile/EPK.

Use this link to quickly contact festivals you are interested in applying for. Before you use this tool, be sure your FestivalNet profile is complete. From the My Account area, you can modify your profile page (includes your bio), add photos, songs, videos, blog, and calendar.

This functionality needs to work with your default email program on your computer/browser, which you need to have set up first. You will have the chance to add more text to the email containing your EPK before sending the email.
