HOW TO ADD A PLACE

For that, select "Add place" in the "Editing" menu in the top bar: [1] This will take you to a page with a form like the one in this image: [2] The first field is for the name. This one is usually as straightforward as it sounds. The Disambiguation field is used to distinguish different places with the same name. If there's already an place with this name in MusicBrainz, you will be informed that you must enter a comment. Try to make it useful! A short description of the place (like "British metal band") works best. If there's no other place with the same name, you can leave this blank. [3] Only the dates section left now! Fill the Date Section or you can omit it. You can also add URLs (web pages) and other relationships before you finish adding the place. These are not required (although an place without relationships or releases will be auto-removed, see below). For more info on how to do this, see our specific guide about relationships. Now you should be done! Add Entering an edit note that describes where you got your information is highly recommended. Not only does it make it clear where you got your information, but it can also encourage other users to vote on your edit — thus making your edit get applied faster.

Even just providing a URL or two is helpful! and press "Enter edit".
