Stageville was founded in Dublin in 2015. We have developed a crowdfunding platform tailored for the needs of the up-and-coming musician, where artists can connect with fans and raise much needed funds to succeed in the music industry. Our primary focus is on live shows. We provide a safety net for all individuals and organisations involved in the production of gigs.
We encourage artists to get a commitment from their fans. From our own experience of putting on gigs using the traditional format, we found it very stressful and worrying not knowing whether or not a crowd would turn up. This is why we put emphasis on pre-sale tickets. The show is only confirmed when artists receive a sufficient number of pledges from fans. Pledges then convert to attendees on the night. The artist already knows that they will earn from performing, and that they will play to a good crowd.
Our goal is to work with artists, promoters, managers, record labels and booking agents to make gigging easier. We are not trying to replace any agent close to the artist. Instead, we are trying to facilitate artists, remove all risk from organising gigs, make sure they profit from performing, and make their gigging experience better.
