Newcastle Live’s guide reaches an average of 10,000 people per week. You can submit your gig or event to our guide free of charge, and it will be published within 2-3 business days, pending content approval.

GIG GUIDE & EVENT CALENDAR UPDATE

In December 2018, Newcastle Live will update its gig guide and event calendar. We are making these changes to give our community a better experience when looking for things to do in Newcastle, the Hunter & Lake Macquarie. In the coming months, you will see these improvements roll out on the website

How do I register a gig or event?

We are now asking for gig guide and event calendar submissions via a Facebook event URL.

You can find the submission form above.

Using Facebook as a reference we are able to provide our community with more information about your gig or event. This reference will allow us to publish an image with each listing, the start and end times of your gig or event, and better manage duplicate events and gigs.

What information will be published?

The information we reference to publish your event on our website is data you’ve made publicly available when setting up your Facebook event.

From this reference we will publish the following information on newcastlelive.com.au

The name of your Facebook event
The date of your Facebook event
The location name and address of your event
The Start & End times of your event
The Facebook Event Image
The Facebook event information

What if I don’t want to set up a Facebook event?

Facebook’s new event system and mobile apps make it a great place to promote your gigs and events, even to a small audience. After 5 years of producing the Newcastle Live gig guide and event calendar, we believe this system is best for both our community and gig and event hosts.

If you have a one-off event that you do not wish to register a Facebook event for, please email us at rockon@newcastlelive.com.au. We will asses each request indervidually.

When will my event be published?

Your gig or event will be published on Newcastle Live within 7 days of it being submitted. If you have any further questions, please email rockon@newcastlelive.com.au

Why hasn’t my event been published?

Newcastle Live retains the right to refuse publication of any event. If you have any questions, please email rockon@newcastlelive.com.au
