How to book shows with LiveTrigger?

If you’re new to the LiveTrigger Community, you are welcome!

 

If not, what are you waiting for? Click here and join the most advanced live music community on the planet 🌎

 

Now, it’s time to start your search and book your next shows!

 

There are two main ways you can book shows on Livetrigger:

  1. you can create a geolocalised Public gig Request on the map
  2. you can search worldwide for venues, bands, musicians & promoters and send them a private message, what we call a gig request βœ‰

 

When you start organising music gigs and tours, it’s always better to start as early as possible.

This way you got time to ask for availabilities and wait for the responses.

Remember that the best venues and the top promoters are always busy, and sometimes they answer back to messages after a few days or weeks. 

That’s why we recommend you to start booking your shows at least 3 months before the actual dates: that’s the best way to find all the availabilities on time!

  1. Sign up and log in LiveTrigger.com

Post a Public Request

So, you want to organise a show, but you don’t have direct contacts in the area where you would like to play!

The best way to find a gig or organise a show is to ask the local community to help you and yes… it’s OK to ask your community for help!
