Venue or Event Manager #
Riffer Music is responsible for the interaction between the Event Manager and the Artist. The moment the booking is accepted by the Artist you will have 24 hours to reserve the funds for the final Artist payout including any and all fees associated with the booking. Once this is completed your reservation will be confirmed.
From this point on Riffer Music will hold the payment in Stripe to be distributed to the Artist after the performance is finished. To avoid issues with an Artist potentially getting paid for a no-show make sure to dispute the transaction no later than 24 hours after the booking end date and time. You should also leave a poor review for the Artist and the Artist may be removed from our community.
Case Scenario #
Venue Cancellation #
Booking cancellations are not tolerated unless there are extenuating circumstances. Remember that you can cancel a booking at any time before the reserved payment is made. Once the reservation is confirmed and the event is paid for you will have to open a dispute to receive a partial refund. Please note the Riffer Music fees are non-refundable. We kindly ask that you stay in constant communication with the Artist to prevent any misunderstandings. In the event of an unforeseen circumstance, a dispute must be created and if applicable the entirety of the Artist fee will be refunded to the Venue or Event Coordinator.
Artist No-Show #
Riffer Music and the community takes no-shows by an Artist very seriously. When an Artist does not show up for their performance the Event Coordinator or Venue will get a full refund of the Artist’s fees and the Artist may face possible suspension from the Riffer Music platform. Event Coordinators should feel inclined to write a poor review for late cancellations or no-shows when Artists do not communicate their unavailability.

Artist Cancellation #
Booking cancellations are not tolerated unless there are extenuating circumstances. Please also remember that you only can cancel a booking before it’s confirmed and paid. After the funds have been reserved for your event a dispute will need to be created and reviewed by the Riffer Music team. Remember that in the case of a cancellation, no compensation will be due. We kindly ask that you stay in constant communication with the Venue or Event Coordinator to prevent any misunderstandings in the case of a cancellation.
A no-show will compromise your reputation within the Riffer Music community as well as outside the community.
