When do we send e-blasts?

We send single show e-blasts on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Purchase of an e-blast is the purchase of one send date.

How far in advance should I reserve an e-blast?

A minimum of 10 business days before your anticipated send date. ZAPP e-blasts are reserved first come, first served, so we recommend requesting an e-blast as soon as you know you’ll want to send one.


E-Blast pricing is determined by the number of emails sent. Event administrators can filter the email list by region or state, and by medium category. The number of artists signed up to receive single show e-blasts in each region varies, but the approximate numbers are as follows:

If you cancel your single show announcement, ZAPP will refund the full cost of the e-blast, less credit card fees when applicable, if:

  • The administrator who requested the e-blast submits to ZAPP, in writing, a cancellation request at least one month prior to their e-blast send date.


  • ZAPP is able to fill the e-blast slot.

The event requesting the refund will be notified by email of the status of their request.

ZAPP will not refund e-blasts only in the case that an administrator fails to contact us or contacts us less than two weeks before their e-blast date.

E-Blast Content

When your request for an e-blast is confirmed we will create a draft that includes your event’s location, applicable dates, the application fee, a contact, your show website, and event summary. You will have an opportunity to adjust the information in the draft before the e-blast is sent.

Your show logo is automatically included in the announcement. An additional image costs $25. All drafts must be approved by the show administrators before being sent. Events reserving an e-blast also have the opportunity to have ZAPP post their event on our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for $25.

E-Blast Frequently Asked Questions

How are artists added to the list? Can I see the list?

Artists must opt-in to receiving Single Show Announcements in their ZAPP® profiles. To comply with our privacy policy, we do not share this list directly with the purchasing organization.

How do I choose which artists receive my announcement?

You can filter by state or geographic region, and further filter by medium category.

When are the e-blasts sent?

Emails are sent on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday in the morning or afternoon. To keep your e-blast exclusive and to avoid inundating artists with emails, only one e-blast is sent to the specified area per day.

Can I add a graphic to my e-blast?

Your show’s logo is automatically included. If you would like to add one additional graphic, the cost is $25. We recommend that the additional graphic be no larger than 300 pixels on the longest side.

Can I purchase more than one e-blast?

Yes. However, the Single Show announcement is limited to two purchases per show, per contract period.

E-blasts are secured on a first come, first served basis.
