ArtistData gives our network partners the incredible opportunity to lower the barrier to entry for getting an artist engaged in their site. You no longer have to convince them to update yet another site.
Joining is very simple. You fill out the signup form to get a developer key. Then, start using the data feeds, making sure to follow our licensing policies. Notice we haven't said "pay ArtistData". That's because use of our feeds is completely free.
Once you are ready to go live, artists will be able to connect to your service through the ArtistData dashboard. You will give them a unique key to enter into our site and we will include that key in your feed, allowing you to easily match the artist record in our system with that of your own.
If you don't want artists to manually add your site, you can apply for a firehose feed of all shows. To do this, with a description of your site and what you would like to use it for. NOTE: We are taking these requests slower than the main feed requests.
