Over 2'000 Entertainers offer their shows in many cities. All you have to do is enter the city of your event and the kind of Entertainment you are looking for into the search bar to discover various Entertainers for your event.

Tools that help you search

We display photos, videos, profiles and reviews of Entertainers to help you make informed decisions for your event Entertainment. We've also created search filters so you can narrow your results by type of Entertainment, music genre and Entertainer’s rate. For example, if you’re looking a live band for your wedding, select Party Band or Wedding Band. If you are looking for background music for your business apéro or networking event select Jazz Band or Classical Musician.

Contacting and booking an entertainer

Once you have found one or more Artists that you like, you can send a quote request by clicking Request Quote / Contact Entertainer buttons. Provide the Artist with as much information about your event and the expected entertainment as possible. This will make it easier and quicker to book the right Entertainer.


There are a few ways to book Artists on Stagend. Some Event Planners want to get to directly contact many Artists, while others prefer to post an Ad on Stagend and wait for applications from Artists, in order to reduce the time of search.

Buttons to book an Artist on Stagend

The Check Availability button sends a reservation request to an Artist for the specific event dates you select. The Artist has the option to either accept or decline the request, or ask you questions about your event. When an Artist responds to your request, we send you an email to let you know. If they don't respond within 24 hours, they will be sent automatic reminders.

Our messaging system allows you to discuss event details directly with the artist, reach an agreement and even confirm or cancel a booking.

Our Post Ad button creates a public Ad on the website and informs all Artists corresponding to the kind of entertainment you describe. An email will let you know when an Artist responds to your ad.

Payment and confirmation

When you confirm the booking of an Artist with the "Hire Artist and send message" button, we'll ask to do your payment so we can hold your booking. Then we will process your payment and send you a congratulatory email that includes your event details, and best wishes for a great event.


Once you know who is going to entertain your guests, all you have to do is get ready for the event!

Before your Event

Send a message to your Artist to arrange the last details about the event and logistics, such as time of arrival and other technical questions. By your confirmation of the booking, we'll send you an email that includes all booking details and Artist’s contact information. You can also view your booking details, edit your plans, or cancel your booking from the Contacted Artists section, in the dashboard on your personal account page.

During your Event

We wish you and your guests to have the best time of your lives! Enjoy the entertainment and have a fantastic event. If any issues arise during your event, be sure to get in touch with your Artist. In most cases, they'll be the person best equipped to help you. If your Artist can't solve the problem, please contact us.

After your Event
