Artist Application

PERFORM AT THE FUEL ROOM

Please be patient with our response as we typically receive hundreds of applications per week. While we do our best to provide opportunities to up-and-coming acts, the number of open dates are limited due to existing arrangements with national acts, local agents and acts that have a proven history in the Chicagoland area. This form may seem harsh – it IS… we simply do not have the time to devote to sending out hundreds of thank you notes to everyone who applies.

If you think your band fits the bill, Please tell us about your act.

WHAT IS YOUR AVERAGE DRAW?
If you cannot draw 200 people - stop right here and close the page

DESIRED COMPENSATION
You should know how much it costs you to play the show, fuel, transportation, lodging, payroll, and profit. After you calculate that figure think about how many people at $6 per head you would need to pay at the door in order to cover that cost. Then add $400 for operating expenses. For example if you require $1200 - that means you need to draw at least 266 people. Thats what we need to "Break Even" - This is how we make money and stay in business. Breaking Even doesn't interest us.

MAXIMUM SET TIME
If you can't accommodate a 3 hour performance - you should indicate that you are only seeking an opening spot. Opening Spots typically do not get paid.

Dates Available
We typically book 3 months in advance - look at our calendar - find specific dates that are not taken that you are also available for - these are the dates we want to hear. If this process is not somewhat difficult - you probably shouldn't be playing the Fuel Room.

ARE YOU WILLING TO PAY AUSTIN'S TO OPEN FOR A NATIONAL ACT?
Opening for a National Act is a benefit to YOU - not to the band you are opening for - putting you in front of a large crowd on one of the best stages in Illinois. Potentially building your Libertyville fanbase. If you don't pay for the spot - somebody else will. Its your call.
