A live music
platform for artists
Want a free place to list your upcoming gigs – to build an audience and get booked for events? You’ve come to the right place.
Live music should be about the artist
People love going to see live music, but it’s tough to get direct access to your audience or people who want to book you for gigs. Six8 offers a free platform to put your gig listings in front of an engaged audience quickly and easily, and get more people booking you for gigs. List your gigs today and increase the people at your next performance.
Use our service for free
Artists can register, list gigs, and get booked on our platform for free. There is no expense to you outside of the time it takes to make a profile page – which you can do at any stage.
List your upcoming gigs
Create an account and jump on Gig Finder. You gigs can be listed by simply pressing the ‘+’ on the right. Once saved, your gigs will then be available to thousands of engaged live music lovers.
Get booked on the platform
Create an artist profile and be booked directly on the platform. There’s no contracts and you get whatever price you ask for when a gig is confirmed.
Questions artists ask
How do I become a Six8 artist?
Click on the registration button at the top of the site to create an account. You can then choose to create an artist profile. The more detail and media embeds you can put in your profile, the higher the chances a host or venue will reach out to book you for their next event.
If you need help in setting up your profile, use the contact form below – we’ll get in touch ASAP.
What are my costs and obligations?
We have always had the vision that this industry needed to change to be tipped a little more in the artist’s favour. So we don’t charge artists anything to be booked, nor do we lock artists in to contracts (outside of performing at an agreed upon booking, of course). Best of all, you set your own rate – the only time we’ll step in is if you set a rate below the minimum industry wage, because we don’t want to encourage artists being underpaid. Think of us like the AirBnB of live music: list for free at your price, get booked, perform, and get paid what you ask for.
Can I list non-Six8 gigs on Gig Finder?
Absolutely. We encourage all gigs to be listed on Gig Finder, whether it was booked through Six8 or not. We want to support live music however we can – a vibrant live music culture is good for everyone, including us! You are also our best advertisement, so we want to help you to get an audience to all your gigs, any way they are organised.
I don't get it, what's in it for Six8?
There are two answers to that question. From the business side, we apply a 10% booking fee paid by the host when they make a booking – again a little like AirBnB – that’s how we keep this community alive. Beyond the business, we just want to make a genuine change in the industry. Live music is deeply important to us and we think it’s time someone gave it directly to the people, where it belongs.
