You’ve booked an exciting show. 

Now it’s time to tell the world so you can sell out the venue and play to a packed house.

If you’re like a lot of musicians, you might jump to announcing the show on your favorite social app. Job done, right?

Wrong! Not all your audience is hanging out in the same place that you do. So it’s important to announce your show in lots of places where music fans might notice. 

To make sure certain outlets or segments of your fan community don’t get neglected, we put together the quick list below.
