Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ's

What will the listing include and how will a presenter find my listing?

Online:The ArtsOnTour listings are broken down by categories and genres within categories including agency/manager listings.

Features of the Website – The listings are formatted in a database driven format. This offers search features, quicker updates. The “home base” info for each group / artist gives the presenter more background about the artist / group. Artists' touring schedule is linked. Photos and Live Performance links are included in all listings. Highlights Pacific Contact Showcase artists.

Here’s The Deal:

For Agencies/Managers: Agents and managers will have their own listing on the website (as part of membership) and then, depending on their membership type, can opt to have their artists listed in the genre-specific sections with a full webpage including a photo.

Member Type C - Agents/Managers representing 1-3 artists: 2 free listings with 2 photos (one listing must be for the agency or manager in the Agency/ Manager genre)

Member Type D - Agents/Managers representing 4 or more artists: 3 free listings with 3 photos (one listing must be for the agency or manager in the Agency/ Manager genre)


For Artist Listings - Single Artist or Self Representing Group: One full listing which will include name, and short description which then will link to a detailed web page containing full contact information, a 300 word description, live performance link and photo.


For Artistic Companies - theatre/dance/etc.: 2 full listings which will include name, and short description which then will link to a detailed web page containing full contact information, a 300 word description, live performance link and photo.


All additional webpages with photos will be $10.00 each for ALL Member Types.

Presenters will be directed to the website through regular and special email campaigns, e-newsletters, block booking project and direct mail reminders promoting the directory.
Once on the site, a presenter will be able to look through the listings of agents/managers and artists. The listings are organized by genres and sub categories within genres and adult and family classifications.
If interested, a presenter can then click on the artist's name and be taken to an individual web page that will include all the contact information for the artist (including links to an artist's own web page), photo, live performance link and a description of up to 300 words about the artist.
