Terms & Conditions

21 Entertainment operates using the following terms and conditions. Please ensure that you have read these before confirming a booking or signing up with the agency as a new act. If you do not understand any part of these terms & conditions, please feel free to contact us.

Once a booking has been confirmed with the client and artist, whether VERBALLY, ELECTRONICALLY or in WRITING, both parties will be subject to a legally binding contract that is subject to the following terms and conditions. In the event of a booking contract being issued, non-return or non-completion of the booking contract does not terminate the agreement.

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. This should be checked, signed and returned to the agent within 7 days. The artist will then also be issued a booking contract and should also check, sign and return it within 7 days. Upon receipt, the booking contract will be filed by the agent.

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
The booking deposit and signed booking contract are due within 7 days of issue. The remaining balance is normally due no later than 21 days before the event (unless otherwise agreed in writing) although for some bookings, the balance will be payable to the artist on the day of the event. This will be specified at the time of making the booking.

If the booking deposit has not been received within the allotted time specified on the booking contract, this may be perceived as a breach of contract and free the artist from any contractual ties. However, the client will still be accountable to ‘Clause 8: Cancellations'.

If the remaining balance has not been received within the allotted time specified on the booking contract, this may be perceived as a breach of contract and free the artist from any contractual ties. However, the client will still be accountable to ‘Clause 8: Cancellations' and will forfeit any other fees paid previously.

If the balance is payable to the artist on the day of the event, failure to pay the fee agreed in the booking contract will automatically result in a late payment administration fee of £25 being charged to the client by the agent. This payment will be added to the outstanding balance and should be paid within 7 days. For every 7 days thereafter, and to a maximum of 14 days, a further £25 shall be added to the outstanding amount. In addition, if a cheque paid to the artist on the day of the event does not clear (i.e. it ‘bounces’), these charges shall also become applicable, plus any costs incurred by the artists bank for handling and administration.

Where the outstanding balance has not been paid within 14 days, the amount may be sought via legal processes or referred to a debt recovery agency by the artist or agent. Unless previously agreed, the agent is not responsible for the collection of booking fees due to the artist.

4: Cancellations
Once a booking is confirmed, whether VERBALLY, ELECTRONICALLY, in WRITING or by the issue of a booking contract, 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, 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, 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 as an administrative fee.

5: Client Responsibilities
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.

The required elements within ‘Clause 5: Client Responsibilities’ must be provided by the client at their own expense and if not supplied may be considered a breach of contract. Provisions outlined in ‘Clause 5: Client Responsibilities’ are negotiable between the client and artist via the agent, but any modifications should be written into the booking contract specifically.

6: 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 18 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.
