Missing Artists

So you would like to add an artist who isn't in our database? Just follow the steps below and you'll be able to import the artist.

If you want to be sure and want to do it the safe (recommended) way:

  1. Head over to musicbrainz.org and be sure the artist's in their database
  2. If the artist isn't in the musicbrainz database, then please add it to musicbrainz.org. Please be sure not to add fake artists, duplicate artists or artists without recordings, and the most important part: please follow their guidelines at all times.
  3. Write the artist's MBID (the 32-digit musicbrainz-ID, e.g. 01809552-4f87-45b0-afff-2c6f0730a3be - this is Elvis Presley's MBID by the way) into the field below
  4. Hit "import" to start the import process

Some caveats:

  1. Newly created artists on musicbrainz.org might take up to several weeks to get available on setlist.fm. Please do not report recently added artists to the forum, 99 out of 100 times waiting a day or two more solves the issue automatically.
  2. Due to legal restrictions, some artists cannot be imported.
