Export Your Shows to Facebook Events

Facebook and Bandsintown have partnered to save artists time, and increase event exposure to bring more fans to your shows. We are happy to announce the export capability from Bandsintown to Facebook Events has been reactivated. Your Bandsintown events are now exported again to Facebook. If you have any question, please read on the article below. Thank you for your patience and your trust!

Facebook and Bandsintown have partnered to save artists time and increase event exposure to bring more fans to your shows. Once a day, Facebook scans Bandsintown events and populates the Events tab on artists' Facebook Page as part of the Facebook Events service.

If an event does not already exist on the artist's Events tab on their Facebook Page, the event is imported by Facebook and added to the Imported Events section of the Events tab. At this point, the event is not yet visible to the public: it must first be reviewed by one of the Facebook Page administrators to either approve or edit the event. When approved, the event becomes visible to the public on the artist's Events tab on their Facebook Page.

If the event is edited or deleted on Bandsintown, this change is reflected on the artist's Events tab on their Facebook Page within 24 hours. Note however that edits made to the event instance on Facebook Events will not transfer over to the Bandsintown event. Similarly, events created on Facebook Events cannot be exported to Bandsintown.

Should you wish to disable this export capability from Bandsintown to Facebook Events, Bandsintown Manager allows you to turn it OFF. Go to your artist's Settings, and under the Events tab, turn OFF the toggle for Export to Facebook Events. Your preference is recorded immediately after changing the setting but it may take up to 24 hours to completely process because Facebook scans our events every 24 hours.
