Why is my venue or studio already on Play Montana and how can I transfer ownership?

If your listing is on the site, it is because we decided to include it for the launch to help add content to the website. The information in the listing was taken from either your website or Facebook page. If you would like us to transfer ownership of this listing to you, please click “Claim this Listing” on the listing’s page. We want you to be satisfied with how you are portrayed on this site!

Can I have multiple listings?

Absolutely! You can create a listing for your band, a different one for your studio, and an additional one for your teaching business- whatever you would like. When you’re done, you can manage all of them from your profile page, found here.

How will I know when my listing or event/lesson is approved?

You will receive an email when your listing, event, or lesson is pending, and then one when it’s approved. After it is approved, you can login to your account and make changes to your to it, or add another one if you wish. Adding a new listing, event, or lesson will need to be approved as well. It may take up to 24 hours for it to be approved.

What content should I include in my listing?

It is best to keep it short, but make it personal as well. Follow this link to learn more.

Can I include links to songs from Mixcloud or Soundcloud in my listing?

Yes! We prefer Mixcloud over Soundcloud because, 1) it doesn’t take as much space in your listing, and, 2) it will work on a mobile device. To include a link, find the track you want to share, click on the share icon, and copy the link that Mixcloud (or Soundcloud) provides. Paste this link into the “Listing Description” section of the listing form. It will show up as a song player when your listing is published.
