How do I get paid?

All Artists are paid 24 hours post performance. One of the benefits of working with FLIG is that we charge Planners 100% in advance of the event and hold the funds in escrow to guarantee your payment.

Do I have to report FLIG earnings when I do my taxes?

Yes you do. But FLIG makes it super easy. In your account, there is a Financial Info tab. Here, all your Gigs on the platform will be automatically listed by event date, event name, name of Professional Profile, and amount earned. You can also print everything out as an Excel-ready spreadsheet so you have what you need come January.

Can I link my bank account with FLIG to get paid via direct deposit?

FLIG uses credit/debit card processing right now, but we are looking into other options and hoping to implement them very soon!

If I'm in more than one band, how do I list them all on FLIG?

After completing your Artist Profile, you can create multiple Professional Profiles. A Professional Profile is what allows bands/groups, DJs, and soloists, to be viewed by Planners and apply for gigs. There is no limit to how many you can create. All Professional Profiles are accessible from your main account so you can keep track of them from one convenient place.

If someone asks me to book another gig at a FLIG event, what do I tell them?

If they are not already a FLIG Planner, they can sign up, create a profile, and search for your Professional Profile using the FLIG platform SEARCH feature. From here, they can send you a private invitation to participate in an event.

Is all my information stored safely and securely with FLIG?

Absolutely! Our servers and data center are SOC Type II Audit compliant and meet SEC.gov security standards. FLIG also utilizes ssl standard technology encryption and account recovery conventions. In other words, we’ve covered our backend so you don’t need to worry about yours.

Do I have to keep all my communication with a planner within the FLIG platform?

Yes you do, but there’s good reason for it. Our in-app messaging:

  • Ensures that you are protected under our Terms of Service and cancellation policies

  • Maintains user privacy by protecting personal information from misuse and fraud

  • Saves all current and past gig communication for easy reference

  • Makes disputes simpler for FLIG Admin to identify

Additionally, booking and paying outside of the FLIG platform excludes you from any of our featured benefits and security protocols. Repeat circumvention also excludes offenders from the use of our platform.

How will Artists who are not selected, be notified?

Artists who are not selected for an event will be notified via email that the performance opportunity is “no longer available”.

How much is it to sign-up and register as an Artist?

Sign-up and registration is free. There are also no subscription fees.

What is the "Platform Usage Fee"?

The Platform Usage Fee is what allows FLIG to address your needs.

The 13% is subtracted from the total event budget after you are confirmed for a gig. There are no financial obligations on your end. The gig is booked, you perform, and you are paid within 24 hours. That's it. Our goal is to be transparent throughout the process and deliver a service that considers your needs as an artist, and connects you with the best opportunities .
