GigGot is a peer to peer platform with a main purpose to empower artists and connect communities. It works by enabling artists to advertise themselves, as well as hosts & venues to advertise event openings, allowing them to find each other, collaborate, and get the gig!

Anyone can now be a host, be it for your party, wedding, or other event, you can now find a reliable, talented performer as easy as ordering the pizza. GigGot is built by musicians and event planners, so it’s got you covered. With extensive features to find the perfect artists such as reviews, ratings, gig history, music lists, and much more.

GigGot replaces traditional booking agents for small to medium venues and bars.

GigGot acts as a personal promoter for artists, allowing them to find gigs and get noticed based on talent and performance, not solely money or connections.

GigGot then reformats event booking data, providing fans with an info-packed local event calendar. Fans can find great shows on GigGot!

Impact

GigGot connects the live performance community like never before.

Booking is still reliant on booking agents. Gigging is reliant on personal networks and expensive promoters.  Two middlemen taking huge cuts kills new artistic creation and discourages growing performers.

GigGot bypasses this, allowing artists to grow and create more art. It improves variety of talent for venues. It also opens a new avenue for people to get involved with artists.

GigGot can forever change live performance.

What I Will Do With $5,000

GigGot is entering it’s most vital stage. Over 1 year of development, it is nearly ready for launch.

The $5,000 is needed for development and marketing. We have had a successful and informative public beta, where we found out what people really want out of GigGot. We’re working extremely hard to restructure and add these features for our mainstream launch, which about half of the prize will be going toward.

The other half is for letting people know about us! Sponsorships, Shows, and ads.
