As an artist, you certainly understand the importance of maximizing the visibility of your events and publishing them where your fans can find them. But you also realize how time-consuming this can be when you need to do it across multiple platforms over and over again.

To facilitate that and save you some valuable time, Bandsintown relies on a number of partners and data sources, including ticketing companies (Ticketmaster, AXS, Eventbrite, Ticketfly, Seetickets and many more), booking agencies, promoters, and venues, to import events that are then published on artist pages and announced to the fans. This simplifies data input for artists and ensures fans are always in the know as soon as a show is announced online so that we can help bring more fans to your shows.

Even after publication, you still have control over these events and can review and edit them at any time. However, if you want to have full control or simply want to pre-screen all events before your fans get notified, you can turn off this option. Read on for instructions.

on Bandsintown


Go on the Settings tab in Bandsintown on the bottom left of the sidebar.

2. Activate / deactivate

Switch the Imported Events toggle Off to preview all events or On to let the events publish automatically.

3. Approve events

If you have turned the Imported Events toggle Off then any new events that come in will be added as "pending" for you to manually approve and publish.

To do this, go to the Events tab in Bandsintown and click on Pending at the top. If you wish to publish a pending event, click on Publish. If you wish to delete a pending event, click on the red X next to the event and select Delete.

If you decide to turn the toggle Off make sure to check your Pending Events often so you don't miss sharing your events with fans!


It is our mission to help fans never miss another show. When managers of an artist whose Imported Events setting is turned OFF have not connected to Bandsintown on the web or mobile app for more than 90 days, events imported from these reliable partners: Ticketmaster, AXS, and Ticketfly, will be automatically published on Bandsintown properties after 7 days of import, regardless of the artist’s Imported Events setting. These events will be published on the Bandsintown website and Concerts app, but not on the artist’s Facebook Page, Events Widget or Plugins. Managers can always connect to Bandsintown again to review or edit these events at any time.
