ALREADY BOOKED at HALO Live?

We want your show to be a success just like you do, so let’s work together to make sure we have the best night possible. Once you have a confirmed show, we will send you our media list and request a bunch of information from you. We also ask that you send us 10 or more posters (11″ x 17″ only please) for your band at least 30 days before your show. We can hang 5 posters in the venue and will send the rest out with our street team.

Marketing a show is all about repeatedly hitting people over the head with your band. The sooner you send us promo material, the better.
