If a Parlour Host hasn’t reached their ticket target 5 days before the event, we ask that they either:
- Pay the difference - If the Host isn’t comfortable having strangers in their house, the second option is to buy the rest of the tickets themselves and keep selling tickets to get reimbursed.
- Ask the Artist to play for a lesser fee - If more than 50% of tickets have been sold, the host may opt to ask you to play for a lesser fee. If it’s worth it for your travel and playing time, the gig can go ahead. Keep in mind that a lot of tickets sell in the 14 days leading up to a gig.
- Open the gig up to the public - There are a lot of music fans in the Parlour Community who love coming along to Parlour Gigs. It’s a fast, easy way to sell those extra tickets. This option only works in conjunction with the previous two and is by no means a guarantee the gig will happen. If any of your Parlour gigs are open to the public, you can, by all means, promote them to your fans.
If none of these options are suitable, the gig will be cancelled.
We do as much as we can to get the gig to ahead, sometimes gigs do fall through and ticket buyers are refunded.
