We include these events for your benefit, as most are usually still good events. When trying to fill a certain weekend, and you have exhausted all searches for currently updated events, last year's info is better than no event at all. You do need to contact each event for current info.
There will always be only ONE listing for each event in our database (no duplicate events) and we do not publish events that are more than a year old. Our researchers will eventually update or remove non-updated events if all efforts (phone calls, emails & faxes) to get current info have failed.
It's a unique challenge maintaining our database of over 26,000 events. We make an intensive effort to research and secure updates on all events. Event promoters can change hands year to year, are slow to respond or do not have their dates or all details finalized yet. We receive updates daily, so check back often.
Pro Tip: Often, members will omit past events from their search. By selecting "All Years" on the Pro Search form, you can get a leg up on these events that others aren't seeing. You can't lose by just reaching out to the promoter for more info.
For your benefit, we include these events to maximize your chances of not missing the deadline on a great show. When it comes to deadlines, they are usually around the same time each year, so the old information is usually very useful. We do not publish deadlines that are more than a year old and there will always be only ONE listing for each event in our database (no duplicate events, each one gets updated or removed from year to year). FYI - We make an intensive effort to get event updates, but some sponsors simply don't respond to our many requests.
