How to prepare a backyard party?

To start with, you need to consider how many people there is room for in your garden. Depending on this, you can decide how many friends you invite and whether you invite a solo artist or several musicians. As from July 19th, you can host as many guests as you wish, because the government is to end the "rule of six" - including how many friends you can have at your home, or meet at a pub. Make sure that clear agreements are made with the artist, it may be important to provide a power outlet (or a sound system) when playing amplified music. When you book an artist on Gigstarter it is very easy to make these kind of agreements. Finally, it's advisable to provide enough seating in the garden and nice decoration, for example by hanging ambient lighting and preparing a table with drinks and snacks.
