Giglist lists the headline act first and links to their site.  Then the support acts in reverse order of appearance.

What if it’s a festival & it’s not about the headline?

If the Gig is a fund-raiser or festival, Giglist will link to the event page.

Where do the links go?

Unless otherwise notified by Artist or Venue, Giglist will default to use the official website, then the Facebook page.
