How does Fitchfork work?


Fitchfork offers musicians, agents, or booking managers a single platform from which they can manage the bookings.

You are in control of every aspect of your bookings and availability calendar. We urge you to promote your profile anywhere you would like. We do sometimes feature musician profiles in our marketing efforts, but it is entirely up to you to make Fitchfork work for you.

Respond to booking requests
Through the Browse Musician feature party hosts are able to find musicians that they like for their events. Should you be what they are looking for for their event, they will send you a booking request for their event. Fitchfork will send you an email and SMS notification whenever the host submits a new request. You will then have 72 hours to respond to the request after which it will expire.

For your safety and protection, only communicate and accept payment directly through Fitchfork. Our direct messaging system makes it easy to keep all your communications with the host in one place and our secure online payment system allows you to receive payment well in advance when the booking request is confirmed. You will always be able to lookup past and current bookings through your dashboard on Fitchfork.

You are in total control, and it's free

Fitchfork believes that music is an indispensable part of culture, and for that culture to thrive, musicians must be compensated fairly and transparently for their work.

We're proud of the fact that when hosts choose to pay a musician on Fitchfork, their money reaches them quickly, and in a way that is simple to explain and understand. Our business, which was founded in 2016, is based on adding a service fee to transactions. Our fee is 10% on all successful bookings made on Fitchfork. You get what you asked for in your package - what you set is what you get!

If you quote R100 that is the amount you will receive. We'll get R10. Simple, Fair, and Transparent.

Since we only make money when you make a lot more money, our interests remain aligned with those of the community we serve. It’s a straightforward approach, and one we're happy to say works well. Thank you for being a part of a fair, sustainable music economy!
