Once you have added artists to your line-up, you can start managing their information in In2Event. All information regarding the booking status, contact persons, guests, crew, and riders can be found in the artist overview.
In this article, you will find more information about all options and possibilities.
You will find many different options in an artist profile. These are explained step by step in the headings below. We will give you an explanation about the booking status, setting options and limits, performers, adding contacts, crew or guests, riders, accommodations, an itinerary and finally adding financial data.
A. Booking status
It is possible to keep track of the booking status per artist by using the ‘artist booking status’ component.
Below you can see the different booking statuses, which can be assigned per performance.
- Concept: The artist is part of your concept line-up.
- Requested: You have requested the artist for your event.
- Option: The artist is available for your event, but the performance has not yet been confirmed. The artist is an option.
- Confirmed: The artist is confirmed for your event.
- Contracted: A contract has been signed. This contract states that the artist will perform at your event.
- Canceled: The performance has been canceled. ❌
You can adjust the booking status on the artist overview. This overview can be found by following the steps below:
- Go to ‘Program / Artists‘.
- Click on the artist whose booking status you want to adjust and head over to ‘Full itinerary‘. With the drop-down menu, you can alter the status. When an artist has multiple performances at your event it’s possible to adjust the status of each performance.
B. Setting options and limits for the artists.
It’s possible to set the options and limits for the crowd types connected to an artist. These apply to what can be requested by external parties, for instance through infosheets and briefings.
You can alter the limits per artist. For example, you can indicate how many ‘Guest’ wristbands can be requested. This can be done by filling in a number or an infinite limit (∞). The latter means that the artist can request as many, in this case, ‘Guest’ wristbands as they want.
- Go to ‘Program/Artists‘ and click on the artist for whom you want to set the options and limits.
- Go to ‘Options‘ in the top menu.
- Click on ‘Edit‘ at the crowd type for which you want to make changes.
- Enter a number, or infinite limit, at the relevant accreditation item.
- Click on ‘Save changes.
C. Adding performers to the artist.
- Go to ‘Program/Artists’ and click on the artist to which you want to add a performer(s).
- You will now be directed to the artist overview. Search for ‘Performers‘ and click ‘+‘.

E. Adding guests or crew members to the artist.

The difference between adding contacts & adding guest or crew members, is that contacts will be saved to the artist profile. If this artist is performing at a future event, you won’t have to add the contacts again. Adding guests or crew members is event specific. They won’t be added to the artist profile.
F. Adding riders to the artist.
There are three different types of riders that you can add, being: Hospitality riders, Technical riders and ‘Specials. You can add complete documents to an artist profile or create an item list.
