GigJunkie is an website dedicated to gigs and the promotion of live music.
The two main aims of the site are:
â€¢ Creating definitive and independent gig listings
â€¢ Building a network of live music fans sharing their gig experiences
Definitive gig listings are achieved by pulling concert listings from all available sources in to one listing on GigJunkie. Through our own technology, and where necessary manual data entry, data is gathered from ticket agents (See, Ticketmaster, TicketWeb etc.), promoters (Live Nation, SJM, Metropolis etc.), major labels (EMI, Universal, Sony etc.) and other sources (local listings, MySpace, Facebook etc.). GigJunkie also lets users (fans/bands/promoters/venues) add gigs to the listings to promote them for free. This enables the live music fan to stay up to date on whatâ€™s on.
The networking side of GigJunkie helps users build a profile of the bands they love and venues they often go to. GigJunkie can then automatically alert them by email and SMS as gigs are added so they donâ€™t miss out on anything. Users can buy tickets through GigJunkie at the same price as going direct to existing agents but without the hassle of searching all the different listing sites. Users can connect with fellow GigJunkies, invite each other to gigs, keep a diary of gigs they go to, post photos, write reviews and rate bands/venues etc. GigJunkie also gives users the chance to win loads of gig and festival tickets. GigJunkieâ€™s development is ongoing and there is lots more features coming to engage and entertain the users.
GigJunkie is target marketed to avid live music fans through street work and sponsorship presence at gigs and festivals, online activity and CPC advertising across a range of sites such as Google, MySpace, and Facebook etc. and affiliate marketing with carefully selected complimentary partners.
