European Tour Booking for Punk, Rock and Indie Artists

Frequently asked questions

Which bands do you take into your roster?

First of all: Please understand that we cannot respond to all requests. We have to do other jobs in order to make a living and we are really busy with booking tours for the bands which already are in our roster.

We only work with artists we are convinced of. Basically they have to be nice people who work hard, deliver high quality music and live shows. They also have to believe in what they do. It makes us happy that we got to work with some of our favorite bands. As many people as possible should get the chance to see them live, so we do our best to bring them on tour and promote their shows.

It only makes sense to use a booking agency if the band has already built up a certain level of popularity. Even for an agency it’s really difficult to find gigs for an unknown band. Even the most promising bands find it very tough to cover their expenses on the first couple of tours.

Booking and promoting a tour is much easier if the band gets support from a label or promotion agency or if they can promote themselves professionally.

We don’t work with right-wing (related) rock bands or bands which are open to a right wing audience. Also racism, sexism or homophobia have no place in our booking agency.

We are not impressed by business talk and we really don’t like rock star behavior.

We still need some shows on our upcoming tour – can you help?

We cannot help you to fill gaps on your tour, because booking shows for the bands in our roster and other jobs takes up all our time. We also cannot give out the contact details of people who organize shows.

Can we tour with one of your bands as support act?

The touring bands are usually supported by local acts. Sometimes we help the local promoters to find a support for a show.
