Your target fee is completely up to you. However, there are some things to keep in mind to ensure your gigs go ahead:
- The fee you set is a target that helps us determine ticket prices for your host
- The target fee is by no means a guarantee, so please make allowances for that
- One of the benefits of Parlour Gigs is, unlike venue shows, you can play in one area multiple times without exhausting your fan base. Meaning you can go to work more often, with fewer overheads and engage new fans
- It can be difficult for the Host to sell tickets if the ticket price is too high, particularly with lower capacity shows (ticket prices are calculated by the Artist's target fee divided by the Hosts capacity).
- The Host is a big fan of your music and they're doing their best to get their friends to come along so you can get paid to play.
- If a gig doesn't reach your target fee 5 days from gig date, we give the host three options
1. Open up their gig to the Parlour Community
2. Buy the remaining tickets themselves
3. Ask the Artist to play for a lesser fee (which is entirely up to you and we only ask if the tickets are over 50% sold)
- If you're traveling interstate for Parlour gigs - we highly recommend booking flexible flights/accommodation as your itinerary may change.
Parlour exists to make playing live more financially viable for musicians while creating meaningful experiences for everyone. Sometimes a gig doesn't reach its ticket target and if the available fee isn't worth the time, the gig won't go ahead.
If your gig is looking unlikely to go ahead, you will be advised immediately.
