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.
In "Modify Profile," you can choose to opt in or remove yourself from the FestBiz Directory.
You edit your listing in 2 places: In "Account Details" which is linked on the right in your "My Account" area (this section controls which of your contact information is displayed in your listing) and in "Modify Profile" which manages your business information.

Export allows you to save the basic contact info from My List to a comma-separated values (csv) file. You can import your list to a spreadsheet, *contact manager or database. Generate mailing labels, run a mail merge or send a group email! Export up to 1,000 events per year! Fields included: Show Dates, Main Email, Promoter Name, Show Name, Attendance, Promoter Mailing Address, Show Director Name, Main Phone, Show Location City & State.
*A contact manager is a database program that is used to manage a list of clients/customers/contacts. Try a Google search like this: "best contact manager programs"
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.
1) After logging in at FestivalNet.com, go to your My Account page page.
2) In the gray sidebar on the right side of the page, click Manage Your E-Lists.
3) You'll then be presented with all of the various newsletters we send out. Check the box for those you wish to receive and uncheck those you do not want to receive.
You can upload a unique image to accompany each event. The upload image option is in the top right corner of the 'edit event' form. Head over to "Manage My Events" to get started. Be sure your event photo is at least 320 pixels wide.
To change or edit a previously uploaded image, click 'change image' in the event 'edit event' form. After image changes be sure to click 'save changes' at the bottom of the 'edit event' form.
Keep in mind once you have added a profile image, that will show with your events until you add a separate event image. If you add an image to one event and not others, the profile image will appear with events that have no event image added. Viewers will be able to see both your event photo and your profile image, once both are added. If you have not added a profile image or event image, one of our default images will show with your event. You can upload a profile pic in Modify Profile.
We are more than happy to post your event on our website as long as it offers opportunities for either exhibitors, vendors or musicians. It is free to list your event and simply requires a free membership to do so.
