Parlour Gigs, the Australian music platform that allows people to book artists for private concerts, has proven to be massively successful, reporting a growth of 680% over the past six months. Consequently the business has now announced that it will be expanding its operations to include shows in New Zealand, with plans to move into the US market in 2018.
"This growth is largely attributed to more and more established artists using the platform to connect with fans in a new way," said co-founder Matt Walters. "The simple fact is that when you buy a ticket to a Parlour gig at your friend's house you are supporting live music.”
The Parlour model is based on breaking down barriers between artists and their audiences, with high profile artists such as Phil Jamieson, Jordie Lane and Henry Wagons all using it to book national tours without the need of engaging a traditional booking agency. Not only does this offer convenience, but artists are also paid 80% of the ticket sale profits.
