Add your show with one click - Try our new Facebook Event import feature
Saturday, July 13, 2013 - 12:29pm

Simply add your public Facebook Event URL via the [Import/Add a Show] link on your "My Stuff" page or at the top of any page where it says "add your show".

Venues and touring bands, it's super quick and easy to add a bunch of shows at one time. Once you add one link and your show is created here, just hit the "My Stuff" button again and keep importing!

Please note that you may still need to add price, Artist, video and other links to your imported event. Facebook only imports the basic required fields.

Here some tips for troubleshooting (if the link fails to upload):

- Your Facebook event must be set to public (not friends or private).

- Your event must be tagged to an actual Facebook Page that has an address associated with it. If the event was created and the address was manually typed (in the location field), the import will not work.

- The Facebook Page (as location) must not have "age restrictions" set in its page settings. Some bar and nightclub pages have done this and the import won't work for those pages. Please advise page admin if you are having trouble importing a show for a certain page (they should remove the restriction).

- In some cases, the import will create a duplicate venue on our site. If this happens, we can help clean up a duplicate venue or help you tag the show to the proper venue. Please let us know via the feedback tab on the left.

- Sometimes an import will fail for no reason. Just give it another try to see if it works a second time.

- Venues and touring bands, it's super quick and easy to add a bunch of shows at one time. Once you add one link and your show is created here, just hit the "My Stuff" button again and keep importing!
