Promote Concerts and Festivals | How to Add an Event Listing to the Journal of Music
The Journal of Music has a popular listings service that allows you to add concerts, launches, festivals, masterclasses, workshops and much more. See upcoming events here. All event listings are included in our Concert Planner, which is emailed to our subscribers every Monday (to subscribe, see here).
To add a listing, see below.
Step 1: Register
To add an event or opportunity to our listings, first register here (Please note: accounts must be approved. We aim to approve accounts within 48 hours). If you have already registered, log in here.
If you reset your password and do not receive an email, please check your spam folder. Emails usually arrive within five minutes.
Step 2: Create a Listing
Once you are logged in, click on Add a Listing from the menu.
Select a category (concert, festival, etc.) and add a title (please do not use block caps), venue, date, region, event description, genre, link and image. The image must be 600 pixels width x 400 pixels height. Images in landscape usually work best but you can crop your image to fit the required size.
If you are adding a job or funding opportunity, please set the date as the deadline, not today’s date.
If your venue is not already in our database, please add it here.
NB: Please don’t forget to add a genre and region using the dropdown options. If you don’t add a genre, it won’t appear in the weekly Concert Planner.
*Time Tip: Use the arrows on your keyboard to change the time. Time must be to the nearest 5 minutes. Please do not choose midnight as it is not compatible with the date. Please use 11.55pm instead.
Step 3: Add a video (optional)
If you have a YouTube or Vimeo video, or a Soundcloud track, click on ‘Browse’ and insert the link.
Step 4: Save and Publish
Click ‘Save and Publish’ and your listing will appear on our site straight away. View the latest listings here. Your event will appear in our weekly Concert Planner, which is emailed to subscribers every Monday morning. Sign up here.
Step 5: Clone Listing
If you have more than one date for the same event (i.e. a concert series or tour), click on ‘Clone This Listing’. For each new listing, change the date and venue and click on ‘Save and Publish’. Repeat the same process for each event.
NB: Please note that listings should only have the name of the event or artist in the title, not a sentence. A listing should not be presented as an article. Nor should social media posts suggest that the listing is an article by the Journal of Music. Thank you.
