Fairs & Festivals

Dave Parrish Photography

ECE talent agents have produced over 2,000 national artist shows worldwide including many fairs, festivals, concert series, hard and soft ticketed shows from main stages to side stages.

With the ever-evolving world of hard and soft ticketed public events, we are always on the lookout for unique opportunities for our fair and festival clients. Not only are major markets saturated with event options for national artists, secondary and tertiary markets have become tricky to navigate as well.  Between the sheer number of public events in a calendar year and mega promoters protecting their tours and markets, selecting the right artist for your event AND getting those artists to actually confirm your offer is a process many clients can find frustrating and challenging. From submitting formal offers to negotiating the terms of the contract, rider and pre-show planning, few event producers are as experienced as the producers at ECE. Fewer still actually oversee the day-of-show details on site. ECE has been booking the biggest and brightest stars for over 40 years. With a dedicated in-house National Talent Buyer and seasoned event producers, ECE has formed close relationships with many artists and has an inside track on securing a myriad of entertainers. 

We know and work with headline artists from all eras and genres ensuring the best possible talent match for your audience and target demographic. We have access to thousands of artists and are experts in narrowing the field to entertainment options that are the perfect fit for your event, crowd and budget. We book and produce festivals, state fairs, county fairs, city sponsored events, weekly concert series and work with legacy acts, headline bands and award winning, multiple platinum artists. We can procure the biggest names in the industry regardless of the genre, from country to adult contemporary, pop, hip hop, classic rock, current rock, electronica, EDM, soul to oldies.
