This is my new go-to venue finder! Not only is the database extensive and easy to use, but each Venue Profile Page includes Contact Info, Booking Instructions/Preferences, as well as other helpful information such as capacity, genres, ages, etc.

If you join the newsletter list, they will send you gig listings from venues that need openers and other slots filled.

There is a rating/commenting system which is definitely helpful, but I would suggest checking out venues that interest you, even if it shows a poor rating–sometimes people leave bad reviews for silly reasons, and you could miss a diamond in the rough!

There’s also a Gig Swap section, that lets you view other musician’s profiles (if they choose to be viewable), see which venues they frequent, contact them or add them to your “favorites.”

Oh yeah, can’t forget the Touring Tips section, which has some truly helpful info!

Thanks Indie On The Move!
