Musical Performance Contract Basics

When you hire a musician or band to entertain your guests, or when you book a gig as a performer, you'll want to have a Musical Performance Contract in place so the event goes off without a hitch.

Use the Musical Performance Contract document if:

  • You are a musician or band who performs at events as an independent contractor.
  • You want to hire a musician or band to play at your event as an independent contractor.

Misunderstandings about arrival time, payment and length of play are common. If you're the event planner, getting details nailed down will make your job much easier. If you're the talent, a Musical Performance Contract protects you in the case of last-minute cancellations, inadequate staging or other accommodations, and it makes sure you get paid in-full. Regardless of which side you're on, having a performance contract in place will help ensure there are no musical disasters on the day of your event.

We offer service contracts for service providers, event planners and clients in every industry.

Other names for this document: Artist Performance Contract, Live Performance Contract, Music Performance Agreement
