The musical landscape is changing, with live performance becoming a more important part of forging a path as a musician.
Music Collective will have listings of the usual performance spaces (pubs, clubs, restaurants, markets, theatres, festivals) but we want also to encourage the growth of new opportunities for performance through house gigs, the wider use of community halls and whatever else emerges.
Below are some resources to inform and inspire.
Learn more about why house concerts are having a resurgence. The intimacy of a listening audience is very special. For musicians, they pay well. For a host, organising a show is easy, and the effort well worth it. It doesn’t cost more than a few dollars to have world class artists perform. Musicians are organising them too.
Build community, share culture, support musicians and raise funds - music in your local hall. Oh! and enjoy the music! Many hall committees, musicians and music fans are organising shows. Learn more about how it's done.
Music Collective is musicians supporting each other. By sharing resources and ideas, you can find new places to play and other ideas to help you. Music lovers can find you for house shows, gigs, weddings, parties, functions. Share your own ideas to inspire others.
