Interaction is the key to a successful session…

“The intimate format of Freilich 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

I'm not a musician, can I still perform?

Sure thing! Just make sure your performance or presentation fits into private locations with limited space. 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. Your performance is appreciated with hat donations from the audience. You can expect about 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.

Freilich hint: The more you engage and interact with your audience, the better the response in terms of donations/selling merch and winning them as long-term fans.

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?

After you performed a gig, we ask you to contribute a “success fee” of 29€ to help us cover the costs of developing the platform. This way we make your interests (more gigs, fair compensation) our goal. This fee is only due if you succesfully performed a gig. The fee decreases to 9€ in case you earned less than 100€. In this case please reach out to us as early as possible so we can manage the refund.

Who organizes the equipment?

As an artist, it is your responsibility to organize and transport the equipment needed for your show. Be aware that your host is most likely not familiar with technical setup at all, so that she won’t know what a tech-rider, PA, or XLR cable is. Fairly enough, your host is sharing his/her location with you and your audience. Only if hosting remains as easy and uncomplicated as it is, more and more community members will decide to host a session themselves. And more hosts mean you get more opportunities to perform.

Why should I publish an event and pay the service fee?

By publishing your event via the 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 remember that this platform only exists because our team dedicates all their energy and effort to this project. The income from artists’ fees is certainly not enough to cover the costs of this project. We are still searching for additional income channels. Therefore this project can only survive if everyone contributes. So please accept responsibility and cooperate to help us follow our vision.
