An event is... an event.

Examples

Event properties

Name

The name is the official name of the event if it has one, or a description if not.

Type

The type describes what kind of event the event is. The possible values are:

Concert
An individual concert by a single artist or collaboration, often with supporting artists who perform before the main act.
Festival
An event where a number of different acts perform across the course of the day. Larger festivals may be spread across multiple days.
Launch event
A party, reception or other event held specifically for the launch of a release.
Convention/Expo
A convention, expo or trade fair is an event which is not typically orientated around music performances, but can include them as side activities.

Cancelled

The cancelled field describes whether or not the event took place.

Setlist

The setlist stores a list of songs performed, optionally including links to artists and works.

Begin and end dates

See the page about dates for more information.

Time

The time is the start time of the event.

Alias

Aliases are alternate names for an event, which currently have two main functions: localised names and search hints. Localised names are used to store the official names used in different languages and countries. These use the locale field to identify which language or country the name is for. Search hints are used to help both users and the server when searching and can be a number of things including alternate names, nicknames or even misspellings.
