Displaying upcoming shows

Bandcamp uses your band or artist name to automatically retrieve upcoming show info from Songkick. All you need to do is make sure the "display upcoming shows" option enabled on your Profile page.

In most cases this is enough to identify your band and start piping in the details of your upcoming gigs. However, if your band shares its name with one or more other artists you might begin to see listings for tour dates you're sure you didn't book. It could be your manager just hasn't yet told you about those upcoming shows in Tonga, but more likely Songkick is just confusing your listings with those of another band with the same name.

If this is happening to you, or if you'd like to make sure it won't happen in the future, there is a very simple solution, and it comes in the form of a unique "Songkick Artist ID".

If you have an account on Songkick, or if your show information is already in their system, you already have a unique ID. If not, it only takes a few minutes to create a Songkick artist account (oh, do read on!)

Associating a Songkick Artist ID with your Bandcamp account:

  1. Whether or not you have a Songkick artist account, kick things off by going to Songkick.
  2. Search for your band or artist name in the search bar.
  3. From the list of possible matches, click the name of your band. If your band doesn't appear simply sign up for Songkick's Tourbox, then search for your band on the very first page after signup. That done, set the window aside and come right back here.
  4. The address of your Songkick page will appear in the URL bar looking something like:

    If you just created a new Songkick account you'll see a similar looking URL, but without the band name. It will be displayed in the middle of the Songkick Tourbox artist page:

  5. You can copy either the whole URL or just the numbers. The final effect will be exactly same.
  6. Paste your selection into the Songkick ID or URL textbox in the Upcoming Shows section of your Bandcamp Profile page.
  7. Make sure you have display upcoming shows ticked in this same section of your Profile.
  8. Save your changes.

That's it! From now on, only authentic shows will appear on your Bandcamp pages.
