- The UK’s first free website designed to help musicians find and book gigs
- Detailed booking information about music venues, events and promoters
- Regularly updated list of latest gig opportunities from across the country
- Run by people passionate about live music, for people that love to perform
A noticeboard of gig opportunities offers artists the chance to respond directly to organisers in need of performers. Live music hosts may add their own gig opportunities free of charge, with registered artists receiving instant updates through Facebook and Twitter.
The new website promotes good gigs, by encouraging artists to only approach those organisers that are most appropriate to their style, ability, location and fanbase. Over time, the site will become a single directory of information for those looking to perform their music, helping to arrange better gigs for musicians, organisers and their fans.
GigSwell was founded in London this year, by a team of live music lovers. The website’s founder, Ed Povey is available for interview or comment by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Twitter (@gigswell) or telephone (+44 (0)7793867987).
