How In-Person Shows Work

Plan

Build shows on your terms using our industry leading booking tools

Set up a unique revenue split with each host. Set a ticket price or use “name-your-price” to let your audience pay what they can. Establish amenity expectations and deal-breakers so everyone is set up to win.

 

Promote

Work with your host to sell tickets

Establish a plan to get the word out - you’ve now got real humans on the ground to help move tickets everywhere you go!

Use social channels, newsletters, word-of-mouth, or good old fashion gig posters. Use affiliate links to track sales from multiple sources in real time.

 

Perform

Unforgettable performances unlike any other

Intimate settings put artists in a context where they’re set up to win. Leave a real impact everywhere you go, making dedicated lifelong fans. “If your footprint cannot be wide, let it be deep.”

What artists are saying

“Side Door has completely changed the way we approach touring - while we still target traditional venues in major markets, we no longer stress about filling off-days with oversized soft-seaters in small towns. Instead we go straight to Side Door where we can often make 3x the money for a fraction of the promotional effort.”
