Many bands/performers want to play at the SPIRIT OF 66 but we obviously can't accommodate everyone that sends us their press package.
Can you remember the last time YOU plunked down your hard-earned Euros to see a band? Chances are it was a band you heard on the radio, read about, saw their video, or knew about in some way. That's how audiences generally decide what they want to see... so if you are an unknown act in our region, chances are the audience isn't going to show up just because you're playing, even if it is in one of the most active live-music clubs in Belgium and you're one of the best "unknown" live-acts...
If audience doesn't show up, the band makes no money, the staff makes no money, the club makes no money. If that happens too often, the club will eventually close and there will be one less place to see live music and for bands to play. Keep this in mind when you make the effort to send us your kit.
Many performers are impossible to book for a show, not because they aren't talented, but because they are not appropriate for the club presently. We don't want you to waste your hard-earned money on CDs, demos, glossys, posters, postage, couriers, only to have them in the "Impossible" list...
Having said all that, good luck in your endeavours!
Please send a professional press kit per regular postal mail or per e-mail (including your best videos links, website, Facebook, etc...) to:
