For the cost of entry to approximately two standard shows, with a small monthly membership members can attend up to 50+ gigs of their choice a month. Think ofGiggedIn like an ongoing fringe festival in Melbourne in which members have a golden ticket.
The GiggedIn platform, which goes live today, May 4th is set to be a huge benefit to artists with 98% of shows in Australia not selling out, now GiggedIn are filling up the venues and introducing new fans to the artists whilst, increasing the artists revenue from the show in the process – it’s a win win for artists and the audience!
“We’ve been focused on one mission – to get people off the couch at home and out to more shows. It’s really rewarding to see us achieving this whilst in Sydney hearing from members how much they love the service and all the new acts they’ve discovered through us.” Says CEO Edwin Onggo. “After an extraordinary response from the industry and music fans in Sydney, I couldn’t be more excited to take our concept to Melbourne. The music culture in the city is incredible and I think people there are going to be as excited as we are.”
Just as Netflix have started producing their own TV shows, Australia’s live music subscription service GiggedIn are also curating their own shows. To kick off things in Melbourne, Tkay Maidza will be performing at Howler on the 25th of May and Harts at the John Curtin on the 28th of May – both shows exclusive for GiggedIn members.
