Give Yourself A Fighting Chance
In A Very Risky Business

Use the Same Information Tools As Experienced Professionals
Box Office
Database
Access the world’s largest archive of concert ticket sales reports. We publish 50,000 box office reports per year representing more than $7 billion in ticket sales. That’s more than triple any other source. Our free Live Box Office Database is a subset of the last 30 days of show reports and can be sorted by date, artist, ticket sales or gross.
Artist
Tour History Reports
Before making an offer, let history be your guide when trying to forecast potential ticket sales. See everywhere an artist has played along with all available box office sales numbers going back to 1999 in a single report. These unique reports are available on demand for a nominal fee as low as $12.50 per report.
Exclusive
Artist Contacts
One of the first steps in talent buying is to determine who actually represents the talent you are interested in booking. Pollstar provides the critical contact details for an artist's exclusive booking agent. We do not book talent and our only interest is in helping you find the right contacts and avoid being ripped off.
Promoter &
Venue Contacts
Virtually every active concert promoter, nightclub, fair, festival or college that buys or hosts talent can be found in our massive global database. Management contacts and details are available for all venues ranging from the smallest artist development nightclubs to the largest arenas and stadiums around the world.
Custom
Research Reports
We provide a host of ways for users to generate custom reports from our massive database. Our Artist Availability search can help you fill your calendar by suggesting artists with an open date and nearby routing. The same can be done for venues. Generate lists of artists based on their proven ability to sell tickets or gross money with a range that you define.
Global
Tour Database
We are the industry standard for upcoming tour information. When agents at CAA or WME or buyers at Live Nation and AEG want current tour information they utilize Pollstar because they know we put the actual people resources into updating and maintaining this volatile data on a daily basis.
Concert INdustry
