Mauvey is a rising star in the alt-pop music scene, now known for his distinct sound and powerful message of love. In this article, we take a deeper look at which factors have contributed to Mauvey’s success in getting booked for 3 major showcase festival slots. Read on to learn more about his incredible gigmit journey…

Mauvey’s Inspiring Journey from Tragedy to Love

Born in Ghana and raised in Canada and the UK, Mauvey‘s music is influenced by a wide range of artists and cultures. Despite a successful career as a professional basketball player, Mauvey’s life took a turn when his best friend passed away. In the wake of this tragedy, Mauvey rediscovered his passion for music and began to focus on creating a message of love and self-acceptance.

Today, Mauvey’s music is recognized by fans and critics alike, with his work being praised by BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 1, Exclaim!, and Complex, among others. He has performed at numerous festivals and events, including Reeperbahn Festival 2022, SXSW 2022, and BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2021. His unique sound and message have earned him a dedicated fanbase and a reputation as a rising star in the alt-pop world.

Despite his success, Mauvey remains grounded and dedicated to his mission of spreading love through his music. “My message will always be Love” he says. “My mission is to distribute Love, and there’s no better way to do that than through music.” With his talent, passion, and message, there is no doubt that Mauvey will continue to inspire and uplift fans for years to come.

Booking 3 major festival slots through gigmit

Mauvey‘s journey on gigmit’s booking platform was truly impressive. Despite only sending 7 applications, Mauvey was able to secure

bookings for three prestigious festivals: Reeperbahn Festival 2022, The Great Escape Festival 2022, and Future Echoes Festival 2022.

Mauvey’s success as a musician was not a stroke of luck, but rather the result of his dedication and hard work. 

You should care about who you’re performing to. You should prepare, you should rehearse. It sounds like such an easy thing, but don’t take it for granted. Put in as much work as you can because people are spending money to come and see you, and you need to be able to give them their money’s worth. Giving people the best of you is the most honest way to build a fanbase.
