One Year gigmit blog – This Is What the Live Community Wants to Know


Throughout this year, we produced over 450 articles in German and English to inform the gigmit community about booking in the digital age – and everything related to it. Time to look back. We wanna share our highlights from our first year with the gigmit blog. Which topics does the gigmit community find most exciting? What are the hot topics? And what is left to say?

One-year gigmit blog

One year gigmit blog means, a lot of topics, a lot of f experiences, industry knowledge, and the unpredictable. In early 2020, the new gigmit blog went live – your online handbook on the Digital Age of booking with news, trend, artist & expert interviews, competitions, and classic guides on booking and DIY talent development. The goal: To share industry knowledge! 

Since then we have published more than 450 articles in German and English divided into the categories “NEWS”, “GUIDE”, “DISCOVER” and “WIN”. We kept you updated with an average post per day. Almost 100 of them in cooperation with selected music brands (such as JBL, SENNHEISER, CASIO, YAMAHA, SHURE), which provides know-how, tips, and extra offers to the gigmit community.

Most Wanted Blog Posts

Those articles were read the most in one year gigmit blog:

Shortly after the launch of our new gigmit blog COVID-19 interrupted our life’s with the first lockdown in Germany and a dark time for live music. During this time we developed a unique series of events to help music creators, which we constant update: COVID-19 Shutdown: Important Info & Links for Music Creators were also one of the most read articles on the gigmit blog.
