FAQs

Hopefully this FAQ will help you understand our posting rationale and process. We simply don’t have the resources to reply to every request or question that we receive concerning the calendar list. If you want to see if your event was posted to the list, just look for it on our online calendar.

General

Q: Do you ever sell or give away the addresses on eventogo?

Absolutely not! When you subscribe to eventogo your address will only be used for eventogo and nothing else. Your privacy is a major concern of ours.

Q: Can you guarantee that if I go to an event you post I will like it and have a good time?

Absolutely not! There are no guarantees with this list. All we can do is post the events and trust that what the event producers say will happen will in fact take place, it’s up to you to take the risk by attending. Some events are amazing and others may not.
