Terms & Conditions

If you do not understand any part of these terms & conditions, please call 21 Entertainment for clarification or seek legal advice before agreeing to them. Any booking WHETHER CONFIRMED VERBALLY, ELECTRONICALLY OR IN WRITING will be a legally binding contract and subject to the following non-negotiable conditions:

1: Definition
The following definitions refer to the ‘Booking Contract’ and these ‘Terms and Conditions’. 21 Entertainment, is the ‘agent’, and acts as negotiator between the ‘client’ and ‘artist’. Therefore, the ‘agent’ acts as an employment agency and is not a party to the resulting ‘Booking Contract’ itself. Therefore, the ‘agent’ does not accept responsibility for non-fulfillment or breach of any such contract.

2: The Booking Process
Once the booking has been confirmed with the ‘client’ and ‘artist’, the ‘agent’ issues the ‘client’ a ‘Booking Contract’ for signature. This should be checked, signed and returned to the ‘agent’ within 7 days. Similarly, the ‘artist’ shall then also be issued a ‘Booking Contract’ for signature and return within 7 days. Upon receipt, both copies shall be filed by the ‘agent’. Copies of the signed ‘Booking Contracts’ will be available on request.

The ‘Booking Contract’ may be modified by agreement from all parties concerned (in particular the ‘client’ and ‘artist’). However, all alterations should be notified to the ‘agent’ who will continue to act as negotiator in advance of the event. Where necessary the ‘Booking Contract’ may be amended and reissued.

3: Payment of Booking Fees
Payment terms will be agreed with the ‘client’ before the issue of the ‘Booking Contract’.

If paying a deposit (as specified in the ‘Booking Contract’ and ‘Invoice’), this will be due within 7 days of the documents being issued. Any remaining balance will be due no later than 14 days before the event date.

At the discretion of the ‘agent’ and the ‘artist’, it may also be possible to pay the remaining balance on the day of the event to the ‘artist’ in cash and before the event commences.

If paying the total fee (as specified in the ‘Booking Contract’ and ‘Invoice’), this will be due within 7 days of the documents being issued.

For any payments not received within the allotted time frame, this may be perceived as a breach of contract and may result in the termination of the ‘Booking Contract’ without penalty to either the ‘artist’ or ‘agent’. In these circumstances, any monies already paid will be non-refundable. Additionally, the ‘client’ remains liable for cancellation fees as outlined in ‘Clause 5: Cancellations’ of these 'Terms and Conditions'.

4: Expenses
If the ‘client’ has agreed to cover additional costs, such as accommodation (these costs would be specifically outlined in the ‘Booking Contract’), they must be paid to the ‘artist’ within 28 days of the event. This is provided receipts and invoices have been forwarded to the ‘client’ by the ‘artist’ in reasonable time.

5: Cancellations
Cancellation by either party is not allowed except where ‘Clause 11: Force Majeure’ applies or where the ‘client’ and ‘artist’ mutually agree to cancel the booking (this must be provided in writing by both parties to the ‘agent’). In either event forfeiture of the booking deposit will result.

Both parties agree that in the event of a cancellation the ‘agent’ must be informed immediately.

Where the ‘client’ has cancelled the booking previously confirmed either verbally, electronically or in writing, (non-return or non-completion of the ‘Booking Contract’ does not terminate the agreement), the ‘agent’ agrees to inform the ‘artist’ without delay. If the ‘client’ has cancelled for reasons other than those outlined in ‘Clause 11: Force Majeure’ cancellation fees shall apply and are based on the following:

Where cancellation is made within 48 hours of confirmation no cancellation fee is due unless the event date is within the following 7 days, in which case the full booking fee will be due. Where cancellation is made after 48 hours of confirmation the following shall apply:

Cancellation occurs between 0-60 days of the event date - 100% of the fee will be due.

Cancellation occurs between 61-90 days of the event date - 75% of the fee will be due.

Cancellation occurs between 91-120 days of the event date - 50% of the fee will be due.

For cancellations that occur more than 120 days from the event date, no additional fees will be due to as this is deemed a suitable amount of time for the ‘artist’ to find an alternate booking.

All ‘client’ cancellation fees must be paid to the ‘agent’ within 14 days. Once received, any outstanding payment due to the ‘artist’ (minus agency commission) will be paid within 7 days.

Any outstanding payment owed to the ‘agent’ will be referred to a recovery company and will be subject to a 15% surcharge to cover any collection costs incurred. This surcharge together with all other charges and legal fees will be the responsibility of the defaulting party and will be legally enforceable.

Where an ‘artist’ has cancelled the booking, previously confirmed either verbally, electronically or in writing, (non-return or non-completion of the ‘Booking Contract’ does not terminate the agreement), the ‘agent’ will inform the ‘client’ without delay and begin the process of sourcing a suitable alternative. This work is undertaken at no additional cost to the ‘client’. Where time allows and the ‘client’ has agreed on an replacement act, the ‘Booking Contract’ shall be re-issued to reflect this. Whilst rare, on occasion an alternate act may not be available. In this instance the ‘agent’ will refund all payments made by the ‘client’.

If the ‘artist’ has cancelled for reasons not encompassed in ‘Clause 11: Force Majeure’, the ‘artist’ must pay the ‘agent’ the equivalent of the ‘clients’ booking deposit within 7 days unless the ‘client’ has agreed to a replacement act of a similar value.

6: Client Responsibilities
Provisions outlined in this section are negotiable between the ‘client’ and ‘artist’ via the ‘agent’, but any modifications should be written into the ‘Booking Contract’ specifically.

The ‘client’ must ensure that the performance venue is able to provide a safe source of power (for non-acoustic acts), a safe performance area, and that they can accommodate the performance of the ‘artist’ by possessing appropriate licenses and no inhibiting noise limiters. If non-performance results due to venue restrictions, the ‘client’ will still be liable for cancellation fees as outlined in ‘Clause 8: Cancellations’.

The ‘client’ should ensure these requirements are investigated prior to the confirmation of any booking and any relevant information disclosed to the ‘agent’.

Furthermore, it is also the responsibility of the ‘client’ to ensure that the ‘artist’ is provided with sufficient parking facilities at the performance venue for all vehicles associated with their act. If no legal parking is available at the venue, rendering the ‘artist’ incapable of unloading, or after unloading the ‘artist’ is unable to secure legal parking within a ½ mile radius of the venue, the ‘client’ agrees to pay for any parking expenses thereby incurred. However, the ‘artist’ must make all reasonable attempts to find legal parking if possible. Any charges should be paid by the ‘client’ to the ‘artist’ on the day of the event, in addition to the outstanding balance.

It is also the ‘clients’ duty to ensure that the ‘artist’ is provided with adequate refreshments throughout their stay at the performance venue. This should include water, soft drinks and if possible a hot meal or buffet for all members of the act and their party.

The ‘client’ must also ensure that there is an adequate area for the ‘artist’ to change in and store equipment and / or instrument cases. The area should preferably be lockable and include chairs for the entire party and a safe source of power.

Unless given express permission, ‘artist’ equipment and instruments are not available for use by any other person.

If an ‘artist’ is subjected to aggressive or abusive behaviour and the ‘client’ does not remove the perpetrator the ‘artist’ shall be allowed to terminate their performance without penalty. The ‘client’ will still be liable for cancellation fees as outlined in ‘Clause 5: Cancellations’ of these Terms and Conditions.

7: Artist Responsibilities
The ‘artist’ will perform for the ‘client’ to their highest standard and in the manner in which they have represented themselves to the ‘agent’ via promotional material.

Unless specifically outlined in the ‘Booking Contract’, the ‘artist’ should provide the relevant equipment in order to carry out the performance. The ‘artist’ is responsible for the good working order and safety of their own equipment. This should be reflected by acts utilising electrical equipment having it P.A.T. tested annually. In addition, the ‘artist’ should undertake Public Liability Insurance (to a minimum of £1,000,000 cover). The ‘artist’ is fully responsible for these matters.

The fee outlined in the ‘Booking Contract’ and provided to the ‘agent’ by the ‘artist’ is fully inclusive and not subject to change. In addition, the ‘artist’ is not employed by the ‘agent’ and is therefore responsible for their own accounting and legal contributions.

The ‘artist’ shall not drink alcohol excessively before, during or after their performance. In addition, the ‘artist’ will not use illegal drugs on the day of the event or at the venue itself in any capacity. The ‘artist’ should be aptly attired for their performance in line with agreements made with the ‘client’ prior to the event, and they should remain courteous with the ‘client’, guests and employees of the venue. The ‘artist’ will not act in any manner that is deemed damaging to the reputation of themselves, the ‘agent’, or the ‘client’.

The ‘artist’ must contact the ‘client’ directly before the event in accordance with the time frame detailed in the ‘Booking Contract’. This contact should be used to confirm the details in the ‘Booking Contract’ and finalise any minor details (parking, arrival time, access time, refreshments etc).

It is the responsibility of the ‘artist’ to ensure that upon signing the ‘Booking Contract’ they are under no obligation to another party in a manner that may interfere with this booking.

8: Performance Schedule Changes
Where it is not possible to amend the contract prior to the event (for example on the day itself), changes should be agreed between the ‘artist’ and the ‘client’.

If an ‘artist’ has been asked and agrees to perform later or for longer than the agreed times specified in the ‘Booking Contract’ a satisfactory additional surcharge should be agreed between both parties. The extra payment agreed should be paid to the ‘artist’ on the day of the event.

If the timings of the event are overrunning due to no fault of the 'artist', the ‘artist’ is under no obligation to finish later than the time specified in the ‘Booking Contract’ and is still due full payment.

9: Use of Alternative (‘Dep’) Performers
Wherever possible the ‘artist’ should utilise the line-up as represented to the ‘agent’ and ‘client’, unless the need arises to substitute a performer due to unforeseen circumstances. The ‘artist’ will have ‘Dep’ performers ‘on-call’ to cover all eventualities and reserves the right to use one or more of these should the need arise. The ‘artist’ agrees that any ‘Dep’ performers utilised will have equivalent ability and represent the ‘artist’ to the customary manner in which the ‘artist’ has portrayed themselves to the ‘agent’ and ‘client’.

If a suitable ‘Dep’ performer is available, the ‘artist’ will utilise them rather than cancel the booking. A reduction in fee for the use of a ‘Dep’ performer is not applicable and neither does it constitute grounds for cancellation unless the ‘artist’ being replaced is of significant celebrity.

10: Complaints
In the event of a dispute or complaint from either party, the issue must be put in writing and forwarded to the ‘agent’ within 28 days. The ‘agent’ will then mediate with the intention of reaching a satisfactory outcome. If the matter cannot be resolved, or an agreement reached, then the ‘client’ and ‘artist’ should seek legal advice. The ‘agent’ is not responsible for the ‘client’ or ‘artist’ and their failures but will attempt to settle all disputes swiftly and satisfactorily.

Complaints arising from arrangements made between the ‘client’ and the ‘artist’ but without consultation of the ‘agent’ should be settled between the ‘client’ and the ‘artist’ exclusively.

11: Force Majeure
No party shall be liable for any failure to perform its obligations where such failure is as a result of Acts of Nature (including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane or other natural disaster), war, terrorist activities, death, illness or other incapacity certified by a properly qualified medical practitioner, epidemic, accident, civil commotion, order of Government or Local Authority having jurisdiction in the matter or changes in law.

Any party asserting Force Majeure so as to negate liability shall have the burden of proving it and justifying that they took preventative action wherever possible to counteract the circumstance. If successfully proven then the cancellation fees outlined in ‘Clause 8: Cancellations’ shall be unenforceable.

12: Miscellaneous Provisions
For a period of 12 months from the date of the event the 'client' must negotiate any additional bookings of the ‘artist’ with the ‘agent’.

The ‘artist’ is prohibited from providing personal contact details to the ‘client’ or anybody else involved in any capacity with the event and they should instead refer any potential ‘client’ to the ‘agent’ using the business cards (on the day of the event itself) or contact details as known to the ‘artist’. Where this does not occur, and the ‘artist’ attempts to exclude the ‘agent’, they shall be removed from the ‘agents’ roster and remain liable for commission against any successful future bookings.
