How far in advance must I submit my event ?

While there is no absolute deadline for using the information you supply we do not guarantee to list events that reach us at short notice (i.e. less than a week ahead of the event). Therefore, we recommend submitting your listings as far in advance as possible of the event date, as more people will see your event.

Is my event guaranteed to be listed after I submit ?
