Welcome to our Arkansas Live Music Calendar, the most comprehensive in the state.
This calendar includes the entire state of Arkansas, viewable either by regions or the whole state at once. We also, for Arkansas music fans’ pleasure and convenience, include “Easy Road Trip” ideas for live music just outside Arkansas’ borders: Dallas; Tulsa; Springfield-Joplin (Missouri); Memphis; and Shreveport (Louisiana).
Arkansounds’ Arkansas live music calendar section is divided into the following regions:
- Central Arkansas: Little Rock, North Little Rock, Jacksonville, Cabot, Conway, Benton, Bryant, Pine Bluff, and towns in those counties.
- Northwest Arkansas: Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville, Bella Vista, Eureka Springs, Fort Smith, and towns in those counties.
- Northeast Arkansas: Jonesboro, Pocahontas, and all towns in the Northeast corner of Arkansas.
- Around Arkansas: All cities and towns not included in the above categories, namely: Hot Springs, Arkadelphia, Hope, El Dorado, Searcy, Helena, Dyess, Mountain View, Mountain Home, and any other place with music events!
Our Arkansas Live Music Calendar is set up to automatically import Facebook page events by music venues, promoters and organizations that regularly host live music events. (We do not auto-import events from Facebook pages that also host non-music events at this time. Our software pulls in ALL events from a designated FB page, and we are a small staff with limited time for calendar maintenance, so we cannot commit the time needed to sift through events and delete the non-music ones from the event import list.)
If you have a FB page whose events are entirely music-related, or an overwhelming majority of them are music-related, and you want your music events to be included in our calendar, then simply email a link to the Facebook page where the events are hosted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Inclusion on our calendar is free.
If your FB page includes many non-music events, but you’d like your music events to be on our calendar, email us about requesting “event adding” access so you can manually add your events to our calendar. This access is approved on a case-by-case basis, and it includes a small fee. Alternately, for a small fee we can pay a contributing editor to manage adding your music events manually on a weekly basis.
If you do not regularly create Facebook events for your music shows, another option is to have your Google calendar or iCal feed into our Live Music Calendar.
For a low monthly cost, venues may opt to have some or all of their events “featured” and show up on our home page as Recommended Events as well as enjoy promotion through our active Facebook page. A venue or promoter may also pay a small promotional fee to have their event poster/promo image set as the featured image on the calendar page(s) in the weeks leading up to their big event.
