However, navigating these directories can be a bit of a challenge. Many of them are either outdated or request a fee that may or may not be worth paying, and no artist wants to spend his or her hard-earned money on a list filled with empty promises. To make your life easier, here are a few directories that are trustworthy and have the information to make your booking agent search much more efficient.
- Indie on the Move: One of the primary online destinations for show/tour booking for independent artists. Access to detailed information about venues and booking agents across the country.
- Indie Bible: Substantial directory (split up by regions/states/cities) which is continuously updated with venue, booking agent, festival, and college info that provides an organized, detailed, specific listing of what you need to find someone who will book you shows.
- Music Business Registry: Longstanding publisher of contact information for artist manager, A&R, booking agents, and music blogs. Reported By: Sonicbids
