The most important task as a booker is an active effort in booking gigs for your artists. The work also consists of mediating agreements between venues, festivals or other customers, on behalf of those you represent. In addition, in this context, they can also contribute as tour managers or general organizers who coordinate and conduct tours or concerts. The booking agency for which the booker works receives a commission on the artist's income from concerts and will handle relevant book keeping in connection with live-performances.
