Act Booking

Malahide's Uberfest List of Acts

The Secret to Act Booking

Anyone can book any act, pretty much.  I may have let the cat out of the bag there. Oops! Until you move into the realm of massive acts touring arenas the world over, you could probably book any act yourself if you had the right phone number and contacts. That’s the truth of it. It didn’t used to be like that, but it is now. 

The bottom line on booking the likes of bands, international DJs and celebrity appearances is that, more often than not, a client IS actually better off using a Booking Agent to do it for them. We’ve been on both sides of this and we’ve spent time wondering ‘Do I need a Booking Agent? Why don’t I just try find their number and call them myself?’ and we can honestly say that, in most cases, the client is better off using an Agent.

How We Do Act Booking

We, as Booking Agents, take the drama and the hassle out of it for you, the client. Believe me when I tell you there can be plenty of drama and back and forth with managers and all sorts.

What we’ll do when you contact us is we’ll get all the important information off you. We know what THEY’LL want to know and we’ll get them on a phone quicker than you will, usually. They’ll know us. They’ll know we’re not messers or time wasters. There are LOADS of those around, trust me.

We’ll be straight with you about costs. You’ll always know what money we’re making in the deal. We don’t get into loading prices and then adding our booking fee on top.

When we’re booking acts for OUR gigs we don’t like feeling like we’re being overcharged or messed around. When we’re acting as a Booking Agent we want YOU feeling like you’re getting a good deal and a good service. 

Give us a shout if you want to book acts.

what we've done in Act Booking

'It was obvious from the outset that Cuckoo were engaged and understood the subtleties and special nature of our event, while coping with the large numbers it attracts. They were always willing and able to listen and take our needs on board, and were proactive and flexible in their approach.'

Jason Flynn, Chairperson, Dublin LGBTQ Pride Ltd.

"UberFest was a great success. Cuckoo were there early til late every day making sure everything was good. They’re a dedicated bunch."

Paul Barnes, Fingal County Council Events

"The team at Cuckoo Events were invaluable to us in running ECC 2013 in Dublin. With over 1200 people to move and look after on a daily basis, I really don't think we could have gotten better event organisers than Cuckoo. They came very well recommended and we genuinely could not have run the event without them."

Gary Foran, ECC Dublin 2013
