Fair and sustainable live music

It has always been our goal to make the booking of live music transparent and fairly priced. Gigstarter has enabled more than 25 000 DIY gigs to take place since the launch in 2012 and we are hoping to facilitate many more in the future. Besides this, we have partnered with The Green Branch this year, to help raise awareness on the ecological impact of live music. For every booking made via Gigstarter, you can now neutralise the ecological footprint of the event by making a donation. By going green and giving you fair live music, Gigstarter strives to make the live music world and future a bit brighter.
