How Should My RSS Feed Be Formatted?

Give us a link to where the feed is, be sure each event record has a:

 

  • tiltle
  • unique ID of some sort
  • date
  • time
  • venue name
  • address (highly preferred but not absolutely required)
  • city
  • state (if applicable)
  • postal code (optional)
  • country (if there is any chance that events on the feed will take place in more than one country, ie: international tour)
  • event description (optional)
  • event cost (optional)
  • event image (optional)
  • referral link (link back to the event on their site)
  • category or tags (music, film, sports, etc)

 

example:
