Most people think that to be able to get a gig, it’s all about getting the right agent, the right contacts, and the right connections.

Getting Yourself/Band Booked

There are actually a few things that should be taken into account if you want to increase your chances of being booked and these are:

Expertise

Make sure you’re actually good at something.

The fastest way to get a gig is to be really good at something, or to have a great reputation for knowing how to do it.

Network

The second thing you should do is get on some long-tail distribution channels, whether it’s blogging, guest posting, or doing podcasts. This will help you build up your credibility so when somebody is looking for somebody who can do what you can do, they’ll think of you.

So long as you got these things, being booked to play on an event will be easy.
