What is Bookable?
Bookable is a platform that allows fans to book their favorite Artists for live performances such house concerts, private events, weddings, corporate shows and many other occasions - the possibilities are endless!

How does it work?
Artists announce their availability through Bookable and fans offer to book the artist on a specific date. We facilitate the whole process from start to finish (booking, legal, payment etc).

What does a performance look like?
We are all about creating one-of-a kind moments. The Host dictates the nature of the show, and if the Artist agrees then we move forward. Typical shows include house concerts, corporate events, performances at weddings and/or other special occasions. We've even had fans start their own small music festivals!

Is Bookable just for artists, or for agents, managers and labels too?
It's for everyone. Agents, Managers and Labels can also use the service on behalf of Artists to book shows and route tours.

If I'm a venue, agent or promoter, can I use the service?
100%. While Bookable was conceived with private, fan-hosted events in mind, we encourage you to use the service to bring artists to your bar, club, festival or event.

Am I able to communicate with the artist and ask questions before committing myself to a booking?
Yes. Once an offer is made, Bookable will help you communicate back and forth so that expectations on both sides are clear before any commitment is made.

I'm not in the U.S., can I use the service?
Yes absolutely, we're International baby :)

I want to host but I don't have any sound equipment, is that an issue?
We encourage Artists to bring everything they need for a show but understand that show requirements will vary. You’ll be able to discuss the specifics before you commit to a show. Remember you can always contact us with questions

Can I make a profit as a host?
If a Host decides to sell tickets to raise money to cover the Artist's fee and ends up making a profit, then the Host can keep the profit or can split the profit with the Artist. Host's can raise money to cover the fee in any way they see fit.

How do I pay for the performance fee?
Performance fees are collected up-front via PayPal or Credit Card. Payments are completely secure.

How is the artist paid?
Hosts pay at the time of booking, Bookable then pays the artist.

How is Bookable paid?
Bookable adds an 8% service fee on bookings, charged to the Host (for example, where the agreed upon fee is $1000, then the Host will pay a total of $1080).

Bookable deducts an 8% booking commission on the agreed upon booking fee from the Artist (for example, where the agreed upon fee is $1000, the Artist will net $920).

What are your cancellation, rescheduling and refund policies?
Both Hosts and Artists may need to cancel a booking or request/schedule a new date - we understand and accept that this is normal for business of this nature. See our terms for the exact terms and conditions.
