You can display your events on Instagram by adding your Smart Link in the website section of your profile settings, or in your story.*

To add your Smart Link to your Instagram profile:

  1. Go to your Bandsintown for Artists Toolbox and click "Get Started" in the Smart Link section. Copy your Smart Link into your clipboard (you’ll need this in a moment).

  2. In Instagram, navigate to your profile and click "Edit Profile."

  3. Add your Smart Link to the "Website" section and click "Done" in the top right corner. This will save your bio section and make your link clickable from your public profile. Please note: There is only one link permitted in the website section, and only links in that section will be clickable.

To add your Smart Link to your story:*

  1. Go to your Bandsintown for Artists Toolbox and click "Get Started" in the Smart Link section. Copy your Smart Link into your clipboard (you’ll need this in a moment).

  2. In Instagram, select an image that you’d like to add to your story. For announcing and/or promoting upcoming dates, we recommend using a tour poster.

  3. Once you’ve chosen an image, click on the link icon at the top of the screen.

  4. Click on +Web Link and add your Smart Link. This will allow any fan who swipes up on your story to view all of your upcoming events.

  5. Add text to your story that specifically tells fans to swipe up to buy tickets, RSVP, or another action. A specific call to action will make your fans more likely to swipe up. Then share!
     


 
Please Note: adding a link to your story is only available for verified accounts, business accounts, or accounts with more than 10,000 followers. Other account types will NOT be able to add a link to their story.

If you do not have a verified account, business account, or 10,000 followers, you can still add your Smart link in the bio of your Instagram page. For more information about your Smart Link, please read this article.
