GiggedIn promote's live music discovery, giving music fan access to the artists they love while encouraging members to experience live acts they may not have heard of. For the cost of entry to approximately two standard shows, with a small monthly membership members can attend up to 50+ gigs of their choice a month. Think of GiggedIn like an ongoing fringe festival in Melbourne in which members have a golden ticket.

How it works? Upon signing up to GiggedIn you can browse all the shows that are on offer around Melbourne free for 21-days. Regular shows are announced on the daily basis on the system and most shows are available to RSVP at midday 3 days out from the event. (Members exclusive shows are an exception to this rule). When you RSVP, you are added to the guest-list at the show and members can just rock up with ID to gain entry.

The total cost is $35 a month for the membership but there is no commitment, you can cancel anytime and have the opportunity to attend up to 50 gigs per month for that low fee. With tickets to many shows on the service costing more then a full month subscription, there is no reason not to sign up.

"We've been focused on one mission - to get people off the couch at home and out to more shows. It's really rewarding to see us achieving this whilst in Sydney hearing from members how much they love the service and all the new acts they've discovered through us." Says CEO Edwin Onggo. "After an extraordinary response from the industry and music fans in Sydney, I couldn't be more excited to take our concept to Melbourne. The music culture in the city is incredible and I think people there are going to be as excited as we are."

Just as Netflix have started producing their own TV shows, Australia's live music subscription service GiggedIn are also curating their own shows. To kick off things in Melbourne, Tkay Maidza will be performing at Howler on the 25th of May and Harts at the John Curtin on the 28th of May - both shows exclusive for GiggedIn members.

It's not just the member's exclusive shows that you can attend after signing up on the platform, GiggedIn will be working with some of Melbourne's hottest venues to provide members a great variety of shows to choose from including Howler, Northcote Social Club, Shebeen bandroom, The Corner Hotel, Max Watts, The John Curtin Hotel, Platform One Nightclub, Rubix Funhouse, The Gasometer Hotel and more.

The GiggedIn platform is now live and is set to be a huge benefit to artists and audiences across Melbourne with 98% of shows in Australia not selling out, now GiggedIn are filling up the venues and introducing new fans to the artists whilst, increasing the artists revenue from the show in the process "“ it's a win win for artists and the audience!

How do they do it?! Seems to good to be true right? Well, it's real and gig-goers reap the benefits.
