I send info for our clubs guest gigs to an excellent free What's On website Simply Whats On & judging by peruseing the listings it seems somewhat underused. It's easy to add dates & for those that want there is a payed element, but not necessary. There is another free underused web listing which I use for sessions at UK Sessions
Cheers

If there is more than one such service then of course the others are going to be underused. There are far too many of these already.

You should not have to blunder around multiple listing services looking for an event. If there are to be more than one, then they MUST share their data.

So by using that criteria, there would be no independant breweries producing cask ale, we would only be able to buy food from Tescos etc, only drive Fords......... etc etc.???

One of the 'links' on the UK Sessions site is to 'Simply What's On'. That's sort of sharing isn't it? There doesn't seem to be any similar links on Simply What's On. Shame on them.

Well, I haven't given much thought to the politics of it, to be honest, but Simply What's On does seem to be a useful, easy to use site. I put band gigs and singarounds on it.

Well I've added Simply What's On to my bookmarks. I tend to use Folk and Roots for Festivals.
For Clubs I think local mags and sites are handier than reading nationwide listings (unless you're getting about nationwide)
eg Tykes News mag for S and W Yorkshire has Filofolk
