Nearly 15 months ago, Sofar had to cancel all upcoming shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we couldn’t have predicted what followed, we knew that it was going to be especially difficult for artists. Sofar issued an advance payment to artists with canceled shows, which we said we’d be in touch to rebook when we were ready to start hosting shows again. We’re so excited to be back in a growing number of cities, but we know that many artists are not out of the woods yet.
Because of this, Sofar is no longer planning to recoup the advances paid to artists last year. As soon as we’re able to book you for a show again, you’ll be paid for that show as normal.
