The built in offer system on acthook means promoters can send booking offers to acts with the specific expenses they are willing to cover/pay out. Once the promoter finds an act they send their offer and the act can choose to accept it or decline.
If the act accepts the offer it goes to their accepted inbox. The email is another form of contact which is ideal for acts with booking agents who want to have all there booking requests mailed to there agent instead of handling it themselves.

The artist Spotlight is for artists we think are having an impact on music peformance or music itself. If you wish to be in our artist spotlight send us an email with a youtube link of your act performing live along with a supporting article or bio, if its the kind of thing we dig we'll get back to you, if not- film some more videos be a bit more crazy-try again.

This is a page where promoters can post an act wanted thread along with the event details. An act can then click on an event and apply to be on the lineup if it is of interest to them.
8. Events- Whats this ?
The events page is where both acts and promoters can post their up coming events along with the details. It is also a good place for promoters to get noticed by acts and another good way to connect in general.
9. Booking Agents- Is this service trying to replace booking agents?
No- We want booking agents to get their acts on our directory. Acthook is just another way to gain more exposure and secrue gigs, the reason acts can choose to be booked via the website or an email contact is so acts with booking agents can simply put their booking agent contact instead of their own. This way promoters and other searchers are sending their email booking request to the booking agent directly.
