We believe live experiences are essential
Just like water, like air, like going to the gym, like having a healthy diet, live experiences are a part of human nature. It is a must have, it is essential.
Entertainment and the people that make it happen are the lifeblood of these experiences. That is why we are doing everything we can to make it easier for everyone involved.
If you believe that real-life connection is not just important but essential, then join us as we embark on our mission to ensure the world has access to quality entertainment.
It essentially changes nothing about the nature of the gig. We do not take commission on gigs that have a pre-existing relationship. We don’t have the right to. The only thing that changes is that your gig will now be managed through Surreal, giving you access to automated invoicing, payment and booking tools.
Surreal is built to make the admin side of live entertainment easy. All your gigs are organised in one place. All the detail you need about the gig is there, including equipment and contact details. The fee is agreed upfront and locked in and payment is automated and arrives as soon as the venue/client pays. No more raising and chasing invoices.
Payment on Surreal is easy and secure. The payment amount is agreed on before the gig so there are no surprises on the night. Once the gig is played Surreal does all the invoicing and, if necessary, all the chasing up ensuring that the agreed amount gets to you every time without you having to lift a finger. Payment arrives as soon as the venue pays - typically the Friday following the gig.
Getting artists paid their agreed amount without any fuss is a core aspect of Surreal's mission. We understand that gig work can be hard and it doesn't need to be made harder by payment uncertainty. We're hoping to bring a new standard to the live music industry where "surprises on the night" are a thing of the past rather than a cost of doing business.
Surreal stores all of your payments on your profile. You can keep an accurate track of your earning throughout the year and export your payment data in bulk during tax season.
