Radius clauses

Artists are responsible for respecting any pre-existing radius clauses when booking a Side Door show.

A radius clause is a contractual obligation requested by promoters/booking agents/etc., to avoid splitting audiences and lowering ticket sales.

Radius clauses impose exclusionary zones based on geography and schedule that an Artist may not book within, in order to preserve the draw of the original booking.

For example, an Artist may be contractually obligated to not book a public show within X kilometres and Y days of a pre-existing booking.

It is not the responsibility of a Side Door host to account for an Artist’s pre-existing radius clause. However, hosts should be mindful of neighbouring community events around the geographic/scheduling vicinity of a proposed Side Door booking, in order to avoid splitting audiences.
