You'll get to this page either by clicking the Add Setlist link in the top-right corner of any page or by clicking the Edit venue & date link in the info box on the setlist page.
Start typing in the artist and venue fields and select the shown values. Then, select the event date, add a source for the setlist and click Create Setlist. That's it. After clicking, the setlist will be created and saved. You'll be then redirected to the page where you can add songs. The rest are optional (however recommended) steps.

You'll get to this page either by clicking Create setlist on the page where you've added artist, venue and event date or by clicking the Edit setlist songs link on the setlist.
Here's where it gets interesting. There are three options now:
You can switch between the two "Add songs" options by clicking on the tabs Line by Line or Text Field.
If you're unfamiliar with the second way, for the sake of rock and roll, use the easier line-by-line editor!
The basic rule is: one song per line and an empty line before each encore. So just start typing in each line and select the song from the list. If it isn't in the list yet, it's safe to write the song into the line and proceed with the next line.

You'll get to this page either by clicking Edit tour and/or festival of this setlist after submitting the setlist or using one of the Edit tour & festival links on the setlist page.
Based on venue and date, the system tried to detect whether there was a festival taking place at that time. Adding a festival isn't basic stuff, so there's an own small tutorial for this. Festivals can also be added after the setlist was created, so there's no (immediate) need to worry if you feel uncomfortable adding a festival.

Most of the times the festival gets added automatically by the system. If this isn't the case, there's an additional, optional step during the Second step.
Please note that this isn't basic anymore and needs some understanding how festivals work. So if you're unsure and don't feel comfortable adding a festival, just post your concerns to the Website Support Forum.
Anyway, here's the procedure how to add or select a festival:
Ok, this is advanced stuff and not for you first-time editors. There's a way to add songs to a setlist a lot faster and without clicking at all. So here's the table of shortcuts:
|TAB||Autocomplete suggestions shown||Select next autocomplete suggestion.|
|RETURN||Autocomplete suggestions shown and one selected.||Add currently selected suggestion to song line.|
|RETURN||Autocomplete suggestions not shown.||Confirm song and jump to next line (or adds a new line if no next line).|
|ESC||Autocomplete suggestions shown||Hide autocomplete suggestions if visible.|
|ARROW DOWN||Cursor at last position of song line||Jump to next song line (if any)|
|ARROW UP||Cursor at first position of song line||Jump to previous song line (if any)|
|BACKSPACE||Empty line.||Delete line dialog appears.|
|SHIFT + ARROW UP||Autocomplete suggestions not shown.||Move song one position up in setlist.|
|SHIFT + ARROW DOWN||Autocomplete suggestions not shown.||Move song one position down in setlist.|
