About Us

What exactly is Pollstar?

Pollstar is the only trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry. We have been supplying in-depth information to every professional concert promoter, booking agent, artist manager, facility executive and every other entity involved in the live entertainment business for 30 years. We produce a weekly print magazine for professionals and publish that information daily to the web via our paid subscription site at PollstarPro.com. Our free Pollstar.com website is for live music fans and contains the same high quality information that industry professionals use daily to route their tours.

Where does Pollstar get its tour information?

Pollstar gets its information primarily from the agents, managers and promoters who are producing concerts. This often means we have information before a show is "officially" announced locally. Unlike other tour information sites, we employ a staff of more than 25 full-time professionals who do nothing except research and build our tour database. We do not use automated web bots, spiders, crawlers, etc, that can't tell old information from new. Nor do we send our research work overseas to sub-minimum wage workers in Third World countries.

How do I submit my artist band dates?

POLLSTAR tracks major touring acts around the world. We may add local or regional acts to our database as time permits but we do not guarantee the entry of any dates submitted. Artist representatives are always welcome to submit itineraries to our data processing department. Email them to tour_dates@pollstar.com and make sure you include all of your contact details.
