Venues and Artists

If you are adding events, let the venue know that you are promoting the event via Entertainment Cairns. If you play at venues who don't have a free or platinum venue package with Entertainment Cairns, please encourage them to do so.
Note: Venues have the overriding right to edit events and / or not allow artists to add events at their venue, so it is in your interests to communicate well with venue managers when adding events.

Please contact if you have questions, problems or feedback.

What Musicians say about Entertainment Cairns

Chris Lloyds

Platinum Artist - Musician September 2015

“I use Entertainment Cairns to advertise my gigs and it is the only site where locals and visitors alike can find out everything that is happening in the entertainment scene across the Cairns region. It has all the information one requires about an artist, act or venue and it is very easy to navigate. Thanks to Entertainment Cairns, I receive more emails for bookings to perform at different functions and events than through my own web site.”

It is an easy to navigate site with much useful information about bands, venues,  festivals and events around the Far North.

Artist - Musician September 2015  

“Entertainment Cairns offers 24-carat value. I've lost track of just how many engagements my bands have procured via Entertainment Cairns’ ultra-reliable message service, both in the public and corporate sector. As a gig guide, EC is in a class of its own … without a question the definitive guide to what's on in Cairns and environs every week. It's been invaluable in helping the local entertainment scene flourish after many lean years.
