College & University Show Booking Directory
Gigging on the college circuit can provide very lucrative income for any musician/band, and when done correctly can not only expose your music to substantially more fans, but can also help cover tour expenses and keep you out on the road for longer periods of time. So how do you land a show at one of these coveted institutions?
From community colleges to the biggest universities, nearly every school assigns the booking of campus events to a student programming/activities board. And most importantly, these institutions assign their programming board tens of thousands of dollars each semester to spend on entertainment alone. Big $$!!
As a result, performers that secure a college gig can expect a substantial monetary guarantee - typically in the thousands of dollars (even for solo acts). So how do you find reliable contact information (names, email addresses, and phone numbers) for these student talent buyers?...
