Live Music & Events

After each show, it’s important to compile all the information relating to payments and transactions to finalise what the artist is getting paid. This will depend on the original deal that was agreed to. For door deals, the venue is responsible for providing this information to the artists and paying the figure (minus agreed deductions).

Settlements usually include a break down of pre-sale tickets, door ticket sales, ticket prices, the venue’s commission, the cost of any production that was supplied and bank details. If an external ticketing supplier has been used, attach the ticketing report to the settlement. Provide a printed version of the settlement to the artist or their representative after the show. Also email a soft copy.

We have put together a simple settlement sheet that can be updated with the relevant information and payment details.
