Becoming a Presenter means you would like to organize, promote and help facilitate a show. A Presenter may have access to a mailing list, social media channels, budget for marketing, and can aid in the monitoring of ticket sales, audio/visual/streaming setup, as well as moderating an online show.

You can create a free Presenter profile here.

To search for Artists as a Presenter:

Log in to your Side Door account, click your profile icon at the top right of the screen to select your Presenter profile. Next, click the Side Door logo at the top left followed by Connect from the drop down menu.

This will bring you to the Explore tab where Artist profiles will display according to your Presenter preferences. If an artist has entered their date ranges and desired tour locations near you, you will also see those availabilities listed next to their profiles.

You can refine your search on the left side by entering a keyword, selecting the performance type (music, comedy, etc), and/or checking Has hosted a Side Door show or Has profile image.

When browsing Artists, you can easily listen to their tracks, view their photos, read a short bio and more. If they peak your interest, click View Full Profile to learn even more. If you’d like to work with an Artist, click Connect to send them a message. It’s helpful to tell them a little bit about yourself, and what you have in mind for working together. It can start simple, with a date/time and the type of show you’d like to put together. It’s up to you, but it is helpful for Artists to get a broader picture of who they’re talking to.

After messaging an Artist, they will receive a notification. You don’t need to do anything else for now. In turn, you will receive a notification if and when the Artist messages you back, and will then be able to begin the Online Show Booking Process.
