Performers are responsible for respecting any pre-existing radius clauses when booking a Side Door show.

A radius clause is a contractual obligation requested by promoters/booking agents/etc., to avoid splitting audiences and lowering ticket sales by imposing exclusionary zones based on geography and schedule that a performer may not book within, in order to preserve the draw of the original booking. For example, a performer may be contractually obligated to not book a public show within x kilometres and y days of a pre-existing booking. 

It is not the responsibility of a Side Door host to account for a performer’s pre-existing radius clause. However, hosts should be mindful of neighbouring community events around the geographic/scheduling vicinity of a proposed Side Door booking, in order to avoid splitting audiences.
