Interaction is the key to a successful session…

“The intimate format of living room sessions allows you to extract a lot more from your performance than just the presentation of your work. I always interact with my audience and involve them into my performance to build sympathy and a personal relationship”Geo Popoff, Beatboxer, Vienna

Your questions answered

Are there any requirements for setting up an artist profile?

Not really, and it’s not us deciding whether you’re an artist or not. Generally, however, you can consider our platform as the right place for you as an artist, if:

+ you’re seriously committed to your creative work

+ you follow a creative concept that uniquely defines your artwork (e.g. if as a musician, you present your own songs and not covers only*)

*not applicable for some music genres, such as classical music, which live on reinterpretations of already existing compositions.

Sounds like you? Great! Sign up and get started.

I'm not a musician, can I still sign up?

Sure thing! We do not limit our platform to a certain genre of art. The only prerequisite you should fulfill is that you create and present originals and not copies of already existing artworks and performances. If you have special requirements, simply describe what you need in your artist profile and proactively look for hosts that match your needs.

Do I get paid?

Yes. At private sessions, your performance is generally appreciated with hat donations from the audience. You can expect around 150€ per session (25 avg. attendees). Please understand that we cannot offer a guaranteed income. You are of course free to discuss individual solutions with your host.

At public venues and events, you have to negotiate a fair deal with the event organizer. If you’re uncertain what you can ask for or if you need any input, reach out to us. We’re happy to help you achieve a fair compensation.

All clear? Sign up and set up your artist profile.

Will hosts contact me or should I contact them?

Both is possible. You can contact hosts and they can contact you.

Freilich hint: Artists who proactively contact hosts with a friendly message realize more gigs than those who wait to be contacted by a host.

What do I have to pay?

Currently, the use of our platform is free of charge. We highly value your feedback about your experience with our platform, so please drop us a short message every time you miss information or experience issues with the platform. Throughout 2020, we will test pricing models in order to find the one that enables us to keep this project sustainable and which simultaneously is in line with the value we provide to you.

Sounds good to you? Sign up and get started.

Who organizes the equipment?

Generally, it is your responsibility to organize and transport the equipment needed for your show. Be aware that private hosts are most likely not familiar with technical setup at all, so that they won’t know what a tech-rider, PA, or XLR cable is. If you perform at public venues, reach out to the booker or event organizer and ask for available equipment.

What benefits do I have by publishing my gigs on your platform?

By publishing your event via our platform, you get reviews from hosts and attendees, which will increase your popularity and visibility of your artist profile. This way, your chances to get more gigs increase.

Please keep in mind that this platform only exists because our team dedicates all their energy and effort to this project. We are still searching for sustainable streams of income, which is why at some point you can expect the introduction of fair fees. Until then, this project can only survive if everyone contributes. So please accept responsibility and cooperate to help us follow our vision.
