Welcome to the Side Door community! Artists working in all disciplines of live performance are welcome to sign up and create profiles - for free. Artists can book self-promoted shows or connect with Spaces/Hosts/Presenters to build shows and tours (online, In-person, or both).
When creating a profile, we recommend Artists complete every field outlined on the page. The most important information is mandatory (Artist name and location), but adding a high resolution photo, brief and informative bio, and links to your pages will assist Hosts in getting to know you better and increase chances of booking with the right people.
Pro tip: The location field wasn’t always mandatory. Make sure all your profiles are up to date with your location. Adding your location helps with discoverability and prioritizes your profile to Hosts near you.
Artists can also choose specific show requirements like whether or not a green room is required. Each of these preferences ensure you are matched with Hosts that best suit your needs. Artists can adjust these requirements at any time.
There will be a section for entering private details such as contact information. This will only be available to the Side Door team, not to the public.
Once you have completed your Artist profile, start sharing the custom URL! Marketing your profile will let potential Hosts know they can book you through Side Door. Artist profiles are discoverable by fellow users and the public. If you want your Artist profile to remain private, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
