Please note the Auto-Announce feature is currently under maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are working on a new, improved version to continue to help you announce your shows to the widest audience. We thank you for your patience.


Auto-Announce is a great way for artists to keep their fans posted on all of their upcoming events. It generates notifications to your fans among your social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter) whenever you announce a new concert. You can customize these posts by their frequency.

Types of auto-announce posts:

  • Just Announced: posted every time a new event is published.
  • Playing Today: posted on the day of the event.
  • This Weekend: posted on the Wednesday before the event.
  • Next Week: posted one week before the event.
  • Next Month: posted one month before the event.

It’s always best to include a custom message with each auto-announce post. Use a broad message here and don't say anything specific to a date or city. You could say something like “Come hang with us tonight!” or “Who’s coming to see us?”
