1. Welcome to Skylight Booking

Skylight Booking has created an online marketplace for musical groups, solo performers, for-hire musicians, musical engineers, professional speakers, and other talent (“Performers”) in search of opportunities to perform public or private engagements, including, without limitation, nightclubs, venues, halls, churches, universities, schools, fairgrounds, hotels, military bases, and any other locations in the United States, where performers perform professionally (“Events”). Any location where Events are to be held, or anywhere else where performers perform professionally ("Venues") will be contacted on behalf of the Performer. Performers who are registered members can direct potential promoters, talent buyers, venues, and other purchasers (“Purchasers”) to the Performer’s respective public profile through the Performer’s unique URL. Other visitors, including music industry professionals may browse Skylight Booking and may create a profile on Skylight Booking’s website to connect with Performers or Venues. Collectively, visitors, Purchasers, and Performers are referred to herein as “users” or “you”.

This section explains our terms of use. When you use Skylight Booking, you are agreeing to all of the rules in this agreement. Some of the rules need to be expressed in legal language, but we have done our best to offer you clear, simple, and straight-forward explanations, some of which may be summarized. These summaries are not necessarily part of the official legal terms. By using this website (the “Site”) and services (together with the Site, the “Services”) offered by Skylight Booking, LLC, St. Johns, Florida (together with its parents, advertisers, advertising agencies, affiliates, agents, assigns, attorneys, consultants, content providers, contracting parties, directors, employees, officers, partners, predecessors, producers, representatives, shareholders, sponsors, subsidiaries, successors in interest, or suppliers—collectively, “Skylight Booking,” “Provider,” “we,” or “us”), you are agreeing to these legally binding rules (the “Terms”). You are also agreeing to our Privacy Policy and agreeing to follow any other rules on the Site, like our Community Guidelines and Rules for Performers and Purchasers. We may change these Terms from time to time. If any changes are made to the Terms, we may send an email notifying users of any changes, and/or update the Terms and Conditions modification date below. Failure to notify users of any changes does not void or restrict the Terms or any changes or updates to the Terms. New versions of the Terms will never apply retroactively—we will update the Terms and Conditions modification date below with the exact date that the changes go into effect. If you keep using Skylight Booking after a change, that means that you accept the new terms. Skylight Booking is for your personal, non-commercial use, except as otherwise provided below in sections 4 & 5.

2. Creation of Skylight Booking Account

Do not impersonate anyone else or choose names or account info that is offensive or that violates anyone’s rights. If you do not follow these rules, we may cancel your account without warning.

4. Performers, Purchasers, and the Booking of Events

Skylight Booking’s services provides opportunities for the booking of Events, not the confirmed booking of Events. As such, Skylight Booking does not guarantee the successful booking or scheduling of any Events. When a Performer selects the states in which they would like to perform, the dates that they are looking to fill, and the dates that they would not like to perform, Skylight Booking selects Venues in the area of selection, and contacts the Venue for an Event on behalf of the Performer with an email, phone call, contact form submission, Facebook message, or any other means of communication ("Booking Request"). Any continued contact or any scheduling confirmation after this initial Booking Request is to be handled in every aspect by the Performer. Skylight Booking will not continue contact on behalf of, or between, the Performer and Purchaser after the initial Booking Request. Any Purchaser who accepts the Booking Request and confirms the scheduling of the Event with a Performer, forms a binding contract.

Skylight Booking is NOT a party to this contract—the agreement made by the Performer and the Purchaser (the "Purchase Agreement") is a direct legal agreement between Performers and Purchasers.

Throughout the process, Performers and Purchasers owe each other a reasonable standard of care and effort, honest communication and a dedication to fulfill their respective obligations in connection with the Event. At the same time, Purchasers must understand that when they purchase an Event that involves personal services, there may be changes or delays, and there is a chance that something could happen that prevents the Performer from being able to complete the Event as promised.

To the extent the Purchaser is acting in good faith and is not in breach of its material obligations of the Purchase Agreement, if a Performer is unable to fulfill the Performer’s material obligations (e.g. to perform) with regard to an Event, then the Performer may be in breach of the basic obligations of the Purchase Agreement. To remedy this possible situation, the Performer and Purchaser must each make every reasonable effort to resolve the situation. A Performer in this position has only remedied the situation and met the Performer’s obligations to a Purchaser if the Performer:

  • posts an update regarding a "force majeure" event preventing Performer from performing the Event as planned; or
  • works diligently and in good faith to bring the Event to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that is communicated to the Purchaser (for example, a mutually approved rescheduling of the Event); or
  • demonstrates that Performer has made reasonable efforts to complete the Event as promised; or
  • Performer offers to return all of a portion of Purchaser’s funds and Purchaser agrees to accept the funds; or
  • Performer and Purchaser agree to any alternate resolution in writing.

The Performer is solely responsible for fulfilling the promises with respect to the Event. If the Performer is unable to satisfy the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Performer may be subject to legal action by Purchaser.

5. Using the Skylight Booking Website to Book an Event

The objective of this section is to cover the details of booking Events in general and (a) how purchase agreements are made with regard to a Booking Request, any counter offers, and the acceptance of an offer; (b) whether offers can be changed or canceled; (c) how Purchasers can get a full or partial refund (d) force majeure events.

The entire booking process is managed through the Site as well as via Skylight Booking’s custom mobile application. Performers in search of Events, use the Skylight Booking platform to grow business, in an efficient, effective, and organized manner. Performers direct Purchasers to the Performer’s respective public profile through the Performer’s unique URL. Purchasers submit offers to Performers in connection with Event(s), and receive a response from the Performer with an approval, denial, or counter offer. If either an offer or a counter offer is accepted by the Performer, then the Performer and the Purchaser will move through the steps of contract execution and payment, if applicable, for each Event.

We use information found on your Artist Profile to book Events. Purchasers use this information to research you and your act and to gauge their interest in you and your music. You must have this information completely filled out in your Artist Profile for booking requests to be sent out and for Purchasers to book you for an Event. If your Artist Profile does not have your act name, your act size, your city and state of residence, a bio about your act, your act genre, your age confirmation, your email address, and at least three (3) social media profile URLs saved with the account, the Artist Profile will be considered void and no booking requests will be sent out until that is resolved.

Book a Tour forms must be filled out each month that the Artist Account is active, within one (1) week of your payment being processed for that month. We cannot send out booking requests for you if you have not submitted an updated and current Book a Tour form for each month that the booking requests are supposed to be sent out to Purchasers. It is important that we have updated and current information that is usable for each month, which details your performance desires for 3–5 months in advance of the current month. For example, if you create an Artist Account and fill out a Book a Tour form in August, and the Book a Tour form details your available dates in the month of December, and then in September you never submit a new Book a Tour form with your available dates in the month of January, then we don’t know when to ask Purchasers for available dates for events and we don’t know which dates in January you are available and unavailable to perform. Booking requests will not be sent out for any month that a Book a Tour form was not submitted within one (1) week of your payment being processed for that month.

THE BOOKING PROCESS

Performers will create an Artist Account and pay a monthly fee to be able to use Skylight Booking’s Services. Once payment is received, the Performers will go through a number of steps to complete the process of the Services. In the first step, the Performers will choose from a selection of The United States of America which states in which they are interested in performing. In the second step, the Performers will select a starting date that they would like for their tour to begin and a closing date that they would like their tour to end. In the third step, the Performers will select any dates on which they are not interested in performing and would like for Skylight Booking to omit from the Booking Requests.

Skylight Booking possesses venue / talent buyer contacts (the "Venue Contacts") in every state in the United States of America. After the above three steps are completed, Skylight Booking references the Venue Contacts that we possess and contacts any number of venues in each of the states that the Performers have selected and sends a Booking Request to the randomly selected Venue Contacts. Skylight Booking may use the individual email addresses that the Performers provide during the creation of the Artist Account and send the Booking Requests from each Performer’s own email address in order to ensure that all responses to Booking Requests get sent directly to the Performers. Skylight Booking does not access or read the emails of the Performers, and as such, cannot be responsible for any contact further after the initial Booking Request has been sent.

The submission of Booking Requests will not automatically guarantee the booking or scheduling of Events for Performers. Skylight Booking cannot force Purchasers to enjoy or respect your act, or to desire a performance of your act at their venue. To ensure your best chance of catching the attention of Purchasers and helping your chances of securing an Event, we recommend doing the following things:

  • Make professional recordings of yourself.
  • Make your recordings easily accessible to interested parties through a website, social media, and/or streaming services.
  • Have professional photos of your act made.
  • Have your professional photos easily viewable by interested parties through a website and/or social media.
  • Maintain an active presence on as many social media account providers as you can.
  • Maintain a high number of “fans” and “followers” on all social media accounts.
  • Maintain strong fan interaction on all social media accounts.
  • Maintain an active touring schedule.
  • Make professional videos / music videos of your act performing.
  • Make your videos easily accessible to interested parties through a website, social media, and/or streaming services.
  • Possess a strong stage presence.
  • Possess coverage by media, press outlets, magazines, blogs, etc.
  • Make your coverage by media, press outlets, magazines, blogs, etc. easily found and viewable by interested parties through a website and/or social media.
  • Provide your own professional equipment at performances and Events.
  • Provide Purchasers with stage layouts, tech riders, equipment needs (if applicable), etc.

It is important to know that just because you follow the above guidelines, there is no guarantee that a talent buyer will choose to schedule you for an Event. There is also no guarantee on how quickly talent buyers will respond to our emails. It all depends on the talent buyer and their response time to our inquiries. Response time varies from venue to venue and every talent buyer is different in how they prioritize their emails and Booking Requests. The response time could be minutes to days to months. Most venues book around three (3) months in advance, with some of the more trafficked venues booking six (6) to twelve (12) months in advance. Skylight Booking cannot force talent buyers to respond in a timely manner. Sometimes talent buyers take a while before they respond to their inquiries. That is not necessarily a reflection on the artist, it’s just the nature of the industry. Just because show responses don’t come immediately, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t coming. You should not expect to get any responses to Booking Requests for at least three (3) to six (6) months of consistently using the Services. Using the Services for two (2) months, followed by cancelling the Services, and then signing up for the Services again for one (1) month does not mean that you have used the Services for a consistent three (3) months and should expect results. You must use the Services consistently in order to see results. You will have your best chance of getting the attention of talent buyers, and getting them to respond to our Booking Requests, if you use the Services for at least three (3) to six (6) months consistently, without cancellation or interruption of the Services.

Receiving little to no interest from talent buyers in the first twelve (12) months of using the Services is not a reflection of the Services and is not a cause for cancellation of the Services. After Skylight Booking has sent our Booking Requests to venues during each month of your active subscription, we have done all that we can do. Everything from that point is the responsibility of the talent buyer or the manager at the venues to which we have reached out. Many tours have been booked by sending out Booking Requests at the beginning of the year, with responses from talent buyers and venue managers first arriving in November of that same year. Do not expect responses from talent buyers within a couple of months. It does not work and it will not work like that, and unrealistic expectations will lead to issues later on.

APPROVAL

If the Purchasers choose to respond to the Booking Requests and progress the booking process further with the Performers, the Purchasers will respond to the emails sent from the Performers email addresses. After the Performer sees the Booking Request replies, they can confirm or decline any performances or Events via emails sent to the Purchasers.

PERFORMER’S USER ACCOUNT

The Performer’s user account dashboard is comprised of various tools, including:
(some tools may not be available or viewable at all times.)

  • Book a Tour (select states, performance dates, and blackout dates to begin the process of booking shows or a tour)
  • My Shows (view confirmed shows, show dates, & show information)
  • Inbox (compose new messages / reply to messages / view conversations with venues, talent buyers, & users within the app)
  • Artist/Band Profile (view & edit profile information)
  • Settings (account access information, notification methods, private information, payment management, Terms & Conditions, Privacy Policy, etc.)
PERFORMER’S AND PURCHASER’S OBLIGATIONS

These are the terms that apply to the Performer:

  • Skylight Booking does not sell the services of booking Events. Skylight Booking sells the services of providing the opportunities to book Events.
  • The booking of Events rely on a number of details outside the control of Skylight Booking, and as such Skylight Booking does not guarantee any Events to be scheduled for any users.
  • Skylight Booking does not guarantee that all of the performance dates that you submit will be booked with performances or Events on those dates. You may only get scheduled for Events on a portion of the dates that you submit.
  • Skylight Booking does not communicate or advance Events or Event details after the initial Booking Request has been sent. All details of Events and Event details will need to be conducted between Performer and Purchaser.
  • Do not assume that you will be able to route an entire tour when you want on the terms that you want. There could be a variety of reasons why this is not possible. For example, you could fail to get the guarantees that you want in certain markets making it financially difficult to play other markets and thereby impacting your entire tour schedule. Do not assume that you will be able to immediately collect your funds from the Purchaser before or after an Event. There may be a delay with regard to your access to the funds in the event that there is a cancellation. Do not take any actions in reliance on collecting any of the funds until you actually have the ability to withdraw it from your account and spend the money.
  • Do not assume that you will be paid for Events. Payment terms are up to the discretion of the Purchaser. You will need to contact the Purchaser for any details relating to payment for your performances or services.
  • Any riders, stage layouts, technical/equipment needs must be discussed between Performer and Purchaser. Skylight Booking does not provide or delegate performance details relating to Performer and Purchaser needs.

These are the terms that apply when a Purchaser books an Event:

  • The Performer may need to ask the Purchaser questions about the Event. To advance the date, the Performer may need information from the Purchaser. Purchaser will need to provide the information in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Skylight Booking does not communicate or advance Events or Event details after the initial Booking Request has been sent. All details of Events and Event details will need to be conducted between Performer and Purchaser.
  • Any riders, stage layouts, technical/equipment needs must be discussed between Performer and Purchaser. Skylight Booking does not provide or delegate performance details relating to Performer and Purchaser needs.

6. Actions that We Avoid and for Which We Are Not Responsible

The User acknowledges that Skylight Booking’s provision of access to the Forms does not constitute legal advice nor does Skylight Booking make any warranties or representations with respect to the Forms, and as such, the Forms are provided “as is.”

If our fees ever change, we may announce that on our Site and we may send you a notification of the change. It is up to the discretion of Skylight Booking if we decide to waive the announcement or notification of a pricing change. Funds paid to Skylight Booking by Users are collected by payment providers.

You are solely responsible for paying any additional taxes or fees associated with your use of Skylight Booking.

8. Refund Policy

NO REFUND

Refunds will not be provided for any subscription, excluding in the case of an immediate upgrade to your plan. We do not provide credit, refunds, or prorated billing for any subscriptions that are active or for any subscriptions that are cancelled. In such circumstance, you will continue to have access to your Subscription until the end of the monthly billing cycle. The only exception is for subscriptions that are upgraded to a higher subscription plan within the first 12 hours after taking payment for the first subscription. In such circumstance, we may refund the first payment after taking payment for the upgraded plan and the transaction is completed. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make any special accommodation in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.

All services are sold “as-is,” and all sales are final. You assume responsibility for your purchase, and the effects of your purchase, and no refunds will be issued. No exceptions will be made. The services are typically provided within 24 hours of purchase, and in some cases sooner than 24 hours. As a result of this, Skylight Booking will not refund any money after work has begun. Once the Booking Requests have been sent out by us, we are no longer bound to anything with the Account holder, as it is dependent upon the Buyer’s availability for the artist to perform, or the Buyer’s opinion on the artist in consideration. A lack of a Buyer’s interest in scheduling the artist for a performance is not a cause for refund. After the services have been provided, we have already completed our work and spent time that we have been paid for. In the event that the services have not been provided within 24 hours of receiving payment, Skylight Booking still possesses the discretion to issue no refunds as per this agreement. No refunds will be issued for any cancelled subscriptions. No refunds will be issued for any upgraded subscriptions more than 12 hours after payment has been taken.

As a customer you are responsible for understanding this refund policy upon purchasing any product or services at our web site.

NO REFUND, EXCHANGE ONLY

Refunds will not be provided for any subscription, excluding in the case of an immediate upgrade to your plan. We do not provide credit, refunds, or prorated billing for any subscriptions that are active or for any subscriptions that are cancelled. In such circumstance, you will continue to have access to your Subscription until the end of the monthly billing cycle. The only exception is for subscriptions that are upgraded to a higher subscription plan within the first 12 hours after taking payment for the first subscription. In such circumstance, we may refund the first payment after taking payment for the upgraded plan and the transaction is completed. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make any special accommodation in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.

All services are sold “as-is,” and all sales are final. You assume responsibility for your purchase, and the effects of your purchase, and no refunds will be issued. No exceptions will be made. You may contact us within 12 hours of the purchase date if you wish to exchange your purchase for a product of equal, lesser, or greater value. If you choose to exchange your purchase for a service of lesser value, there will be no refund issued for the difference in price. If you choose to exchange your purchase for a service of higher value, we may refund payment of the first subscription within the first 12 hours after taking payment. Refunds of the first transaction will only be provided after payment for the second transaction have been completed. The services are typically provided within 24 hours of purchase, and in some cases sooner than 24 hours. As a result of this, you must contact us within 12 hours of issuing payment to exchange or change your plan. This must be done in order to make us aware of the new arrangement before services have been provided so that we may provide the correct services that correspond to your new plan.

As a customer you are responsible for understanding this refund policy upon purchasing any product or services at our web site.

  • We reserve the right to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove, or suspend any Event at any time and for any reason.

Skylight Booking is not liable for any damages as a result of any of the actions listed above, and it is our policy not to comment on the reasons for any such action.

15.Failed Payment

We work to provide users with the best experience possible, but must enforce certain policies to ensure fair compensation for our efforts and the work that we fulfill every day for our users. Customers are expected to pay all invoices on the designated due date that is set forth by the 30-day renewal of our monthly Artist Accounts, and the 365-day renewal for our yearly Artist Accounts.

Failed charge attempts will result in an increasing level of consequences for each failed attempt. Charges will be retried every 3 days for up to 6 months after the first failed payment. The first failed payment will result in no consequences. A second failed payment will result in a 10% late fee being charged in addition to the cost of the Artist Account plan to which the user is subscribed. A third failed payment will result in legal ownership and licensing rights to the artist’s entire catalogue of songs, as well as any material written by the artist for the following 5 years from the date of charge attempt, transferring to Skylight Booking. The artist agrees to remove all material from online sale and from all online streaming services (including, but not limited to, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, BandCamp, SoundCloud, ReverbNation, Indie on the Move, and the artist’s website). Skylight Booking will relinquish ownership and licensing rights only after payment for the missed charges, as well as any late fees, is successfully processed.

21.Governing Law; Dispute Resolution

We are located in St. Johns, Florida, and any disputes with us must be handled in a federal or state court located in Jacksonville, Florida under Florida law. You agree to submit to personal jurisdiction in said courts.

We at Skylight Booking encourage you to contact us if you are having an issue, before resorting to the courts. In the unfortunate situation where legal action does arise, these Terms (and all other rules, policies, or guidelines incorporated by reference) will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida and the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law, and without application of the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act or the United Nations Convention of Controls for International Sale of Goods. You agree that Skylight Booking and its Services are deemed a passive website that does not give rise to jurisdiction over Skylight Booking or its parents, advertisers, advertising agencies, affiliates, agents, assigns, attorneys, consultants, content providers, contracting parties, directors, employees, officers, partners, predecessors, producers, representatives, shareholders, sponsors, subsidiaries, successors in interest, or suppliers, either specific or general, in any jurisdiction other than the State of Florida.

These Terms and the other material referenced in them are the entire agreement between you and Skylight Booking with respect to the Services. These Terms supersede all other communications and proposals (whether oral, written, electronic, or otherwise) between you and Skylight Booking with respect to the Services, and govern our present and future relationship. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid under the law, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms otherwise will remain in full force and effect, and enforceable. The failure of either you or Skylight Booking to exercise any right provided for in these Terms in any way will not be deemed a waiver of any other rights.
