Why should I pay and communicate only through Stagend?

Stagend is a new way to find live entertainment that fits perfectly with your event. The live music business industry has always been vulnerable to risks and uncertainty.

Stagend’s system is designed to give you peace of mind. Paying and communicating only through the Stagend platform is vital to making your experience as positive and secure as possible.

When you book an artist through Stagend, payments go through our secure structure and are not released to the other party until after the event. Stagend also provides private messaging for organizer and artists and profile verifications so you can learn more about who you’re transacting with.

By conducting your transactions on the site, you also have access to:

  • Our customer service team.
  • The opportunity to review and be reviewed after your event.
  • A community of like-minded people who want to have the best live music entertainment for their event.

Artists also enjoy a cancellation policy, enabling you to receive a partial or full payout in the event of an organizer cancellation.

Organizers also enjoy the safety of your funds in the event of an artist cancellation.

Paying outside the Stagend system is not secure, and we cannot provide access to these benefits when artists aren’t booked directly through our website. If someone asks you to pay outside of Stagend, please report it to
