Characterization of the electronic band structure of solid state materials is routinely performed using photoemission spectroscopy. Recent advancements in short-wavelength light sources and electron detectors give rise to multidimensional photoemission spectroscopy, which permits parallel measurements of the electron spectral function in energy, two momentum components and additional physical parameters with single-event detection capability. Processing the photoelectron event streams with a rate of a few to tens of megabytes per second poses a major data challenge in the field. We describe an open-source, distributed workflow for efficient interaction with single-electron events in photoemission band mapping experiments compatible with beamlines at 3rd and 4th generation light sources as well as table-top laser sources. The workflow transforms single-event data into calibrated and structured formats for subsequent storage, visualization and further analysis by facility users. The workflow can be archived for reuse and provides a basis for the documentation and comparison of multidimensional band mapping data and their integration into materials science databases.
