Learn more about Performance Agreement

Nothing quite captures the attention of an audience like a live performance. Musicians, comedians, actors, professional speakers, and other entertainers frequently thrill crowds at a wide variety of venues. These include clubs, restaurants, theaters, stadiums, party halls, convention centers, and more. No matter where an event is held or the kind of performance being presented, many things can go wrong at a live show. To help make sure an event runs as smoothly as possible, artists and event organizers should have a performance agreement between them. A good performance agreement will cover all of the basics such as where and when a performance will take place and how it may be promoted. The agreement can also cover details of services the venue will provide, from artists' services such as dressing rooms and meals, to technical services like stage setup, lighting, and power outlets. And finally, a performance agreement can even clarify how disputes will be resolved and outline what the exact criteria are for canceling a show. LegalZoom offers an easily customizable Performance Agreement that allows the entertainer to focus on the performance and the organizer to focus on the event.
