The Details tab allows you to set the tone for your performance, describe the performance, and configure the donations. This information is displayed on the Live Event page for all fans to view.

The Style of Performance list at the top of the tab allows you to specify the style of the performance. This gives you the opportunity to guide the audience about how they can interact with you during the performance.

The Description field allows you to write a summary of the performance, imparting any information you want to the audience and to put out a message to any potential viewers who are searching for events to attend.

If you don't want the audience to be able to donate to you during the performance, you can enable the Do not display the donations option checkbox. You can also put a message up on the Live Event page that tells the audience where any donations will be going.

Finally, you must indicate whether the video contains swearing or themes that make it unsuitable for anyone under 18.

The Pre-event tab

The Pre-event tab allows you specify the URL of a promo video that you want to show the audience in the build up to the performance. You can also select a video from your music catalogue. In either case, the video will be displayed at the bottom of the page so you can check that it plays OK.

If you don't provide a pre-event video, we will show the image you chose on the General tab until the live stream starts. In case you haven't chosen that either, an image of our choosing will be shown.
