If your dates were booked by a 3rd party booking agent, the only form of proof the RSF will accept that the dates/cities/venues occurred, is the final reconciled financial statement/settlement from your 3rd party booking agent indicating the dates/cities/venues played and payments received. This final statement spreadsheet must be identified with a logo and/or complete contact information and typically includes the following information: show/engagement date, city, venue, guarantee, gross, commission, tax, deposits, etc.). If your 3rd party booking agent’s settlement does not include the venue names, then you must also provide an itinerary created by the booking agent. No other form of proof will be accepted.
If your dates were booked by a non-3rd party source (Manager, Label, Artist, Publicist, Radio Promoter, etc.) the only form of proof the RSF will accept that the dates/cities/venues occurred is the following Starmaker created spreadsheet attached here. This document is to be submitted to Starmaker only upon completion of your tour. Please note, your information will not automatically save to the Starmaker document on the RSF website. You must save this file as an excel document to your computer and submit it to Starmaker with all of the cells completed in full. If any of the cells remain blank, your document is incomplete. For best results, when printing this document, please ensure that it is in letter-size/landscape format at 76%. Both the manager and artist must sign and date this document prior to submitting it to RSF. No other form of proof will be accepted. All performances will be audited on a random basis to ensure compliance and failure to provide accurate information may result in grants being repayable. Please do not use this spreadsheet for any other purpose other than what is indicated above.
