Tourbox is our tailor-made platform for artists, managers, labels and booking agents that allows you to easily manage your tour dates and publish them across the web.
Via unique partnerships with Spotify, Facebook, Soundcloud and many others, Tourbox helps artists to reach an audience of more than a billion music lovers — we’ll even help you publish your tour dates to your own site with our Tourbox website widget.
Here's our checklist of how to ensure that you're making the most out of all of our products:
1. Create your Songkick account with Tourbox here
You can sign up with any email address and your user account and artist pages are separate and can be named as you like. As with Facebook, you'll need a personal user account to manage an artist page. One user account can manage multiple artist pages.
2. Add your artist roster to your user account via the Add Artist button on the Tourbox homepage
3. Add up-to-date images for your artists via the Settings tab in Tourbox
4. Add your artist tours to Songkick via the Events tab in Tourbox
As soon as you add an event to Songkick, we'll automatically notify your fans in that area so that you can immediately reach your target audience This is via Daily Digest email and push notification. We also give our users the option to mark themselves as 'Interested' in or 'Going' to an event. If they do so, we'll remind them about the show two weeks before the concert date.
Once you have added your artist tours to Songkick, they will also automatically appear in the Concerts tab on their Spotify artist pages. If for some reason this is not the case, we have some tips here.
5. Publish your Songkick listings to your website and to Facebook
If you would not like your tour dates to automatically post to Facebook and your website, you can toggle this Event Approval to Manual via the Settings tab in Tourbox.
6. Plan your tours with Fan Insights
Our Fan Insights section presents a multitude of stats about your artists including their top cities, trending cities, and whether they've played those cities before.
7. Track fan engagement with your tours with Event Insights
Powered by the concert-going behaviours of fans on Songkick, Affinity Artists also surfaces who else your fans are tracking and, more importantly, who they’ve bought tickets to see.
