GigTown is a mobile app connecting local musicians, venues and fans like nothing else out there. Users (fans or venues) are able to discover local artists' original songs on GigTown Radio, see where they are playing tonight, and even book them for gigs. We're creating a true win-win-win between artists, venues and fans, with the firm belief that we can change the music industry for the better by doing so. We really are a pro-artist brand and we're putting our money where our mouth is. Whenever someone "Checks In" at a show on the GigTown app, we tip the artist $5. We love spending our marketing budget this way... $10,000+ in tips are being paid to artists each month, and our fan base continues to grow. Download the app, sign up free and keep the good vibes flowing!
