Australian company GiggedIn emerging as new kind of subscription platform
For any avid live-music fan, watching your favourite local and international acts can add up.
First you need to get to the venue. Once you’re there, chances are you’ll have dinner, right? And then you’ll probably throw caution to the wind and have a drink too. And likely a couple more throughout the evening. Then you’ve got your ride home, and you’re not going to take the bus – Uber it is. And on top of all that, you’ve got the cost of your ticket. Going to see live music seems more expensive than ever these days, especially when more and more international artists are touring to Australia.
In steps GiggedIn.
On a mission to get more Australians experiencing live music, GiggedIn has emerged as an alternative to other ticketing and subscription platforms on the Australian market, and is Australia’s only entertainment subscription service dedicated to live music. Currently providing access to over fifty event experiences in Sydney and Melbourne each month, GiggedIn has plans to expand Australia wide. Many of these events range from concerts headlined by international and local artists, to comedy shows and outdoor cinemas. There are no limits to the types of genre, style or size of event.
GiggedIn was born out of the frustrations of founder, Edwin Onggo, and his issue of being unable to afford to buy tickets and see shows and attend events every week. Unlike it’s competitors, GiggedIn works as a membership service. You sign up and pay $35 a month which gives you unlimited guest-list access to concerts and events plus access to exclusive member only offerings and benefits.
More and more popular artists are becoming involved with GiggedIn, such as The Rubens, Tash Sultana, Steve Aoki, Seth Sentry and Peking Duk. Members were also given exclusive access to the Mountain Sounds Festival. Upcoming events include Deeper Than House at the Civic Underground, exclusive Moonlight Cinema screenings of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘, Bec Sandridge at the Newtown Social Club and Eighty-Six featuring Enschway at the Oxford Art Factory.
Join before 30 April 2017 and use the code HUNTERFRIEND to get your first month for $15, an exclusive offer only for Hunter and Bligh readers.
