Live music is important to us
We began with the vision to change the live music industry. We want to make live music more accessible to everyone, to empower a more flexible use of live music, and ensure artists are properly valued for the contribution they make to society.
Six8 launched in Sydney in the winter of 2017 with the vision of making live music more accessible for everyone. The company founders – Keith Sue and Saurabh Das – realised that while other industries had evolved with technology, live music was still very much stuck in the past.
We initially launched as an online booking platform aimed at tackling two issues. The first, that is was difficult to find and book local musicians unless you had connections within the industry. The second, that artists were often not valued or paid appropriately for their work – there was no clear steppingstone to make a living from live music.
Since then we have grown rapidly. There are artists available right across Australia. They are getting booked for house parties, live music nights at venues, weddings, corporate functions, and more. In 2019, we launched our new Gig Finder platform to help make local live music gigs more accessible.
Our journey now continues and we want to spread live music making it more accessible throughout Australia and across the world!
