GigsGuide is a digital service for people, who love to travel and who love music. The website provides users with tools for planning their trips, as well as local concerts or music-related events.

The startup’s aim is to merge music and tourism by letting people find cultural events in any location, discover new artists and support local venues. Most importantly, the users could contribute to the development of the cultural life of the cities they visit. By offering the GigsGuide platform to city administrations and tourist offices, the startup can help them inspire potential visitors to travel and discover the cities. The startup has also attended the Music Convention in Liverpool to learn more about the objectives.

Over the last year, GigsGuide has kept themselves busy. After graduating from the Accelerace programme in Copenhagen, GigsGuide has been participating in Music WorX in Hamburg – one of the few accelerators for startups from music industry.

“GigsGuide has received an extremely warm welcome in Hamburg and our prospects for the future are looking bright”, – Francesco Cetraro, CEO and founder of GigsGuide.

A new version of GigsGuide includes a destination search with recommendations (also including flight and accommodation searches), looking for inspiration for destinations or activities, an account that saves information about your future trips for an easy access, and notifications about future trips and recommendations.

“We already made some great connections, met many new friends and found a lot of interest for the work we are doing with GigsGuide and for our vision for the future”, – continues Francesco.
