Cancellation – You, Your artist, Pushworth artist

  1. It happens. You may have to cancel your booked entertainment at the last minute because your car park is flooded. Your stage is leaking. You have lost power. You may not have enough staff to even operate. You may have a glitch in your internal booking system and accidentally double book your artist with ours.
  2. These things happen. We work closely with all venues to help you through a challenging situation to find an amicable solution when things like this happen. The standard industry practice is that all cancellations within seven days must be paid in full as the Artist has lost income due to no fault of their own. However, we are always happy to negotiate for you to find an amicable solution for all parties.
  3. You will have to deal with cancellations as well. Artists you have booked directly may cancel at the last minute or simply not show up.
  4. In the event of a no show or cancellation by your Artist, call Pushworth and we will attempt to replace that artist for you. 9/10 times we will be able to find a replacement act for you. Our Data shows that casual booking venues struggle with a 65% greater rate of no shows and last-minute cancellations than venues who book exclusively with Pushworth.
  5. Conversely, our Artists may get sick, have car accidents on the way to your show or have to take sick children to the hospital at the last minute. These things happen.
  6. In the event of a cancellation by the Artist, Pushworth will replace that artist for you.

Conflict of Interest

Should a venue wish to contract any Pushworth artist for once a month shows for the duration of six months, Pushworth agrees to not book that same Artist at a potential competitor venue in that same regional area, (within ten kilometres) for that same period.

Professional Expectations

  1. All parties agree to treat each other with respect in all communications – Artist, Venue Manager, Marketing Manager, Accounts Receivable and Payable Manager, Agent, Production Manager, Venue Staff and Patrons.
  2. All parties agree that there is zero tolerance for physical, verbal and/or sexual abuse or harassment.

Show Feedback

  1. We encourage you to share your feedback about each artist by clicking here and completing this form 
  2. We will ensure that the feedback is followed up with the Artist with rectifications made accordingly if required.
  3. Should you request confidentiality, we will convey the feedback anonymously.
