Music lovers and concert goers across Asia have a new app in the form of GigOut. Made by a Singaporean startup, GigOut’s iPhone app aggregates concert and event listings in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Hong Kong – and lets you buy tickets.
In order to sell concert tickets in those five areas, GigOut has partnered with EventClique, ApeSnap, SingTic, Tiket, PeaTix, with more partners being added in due course. The whole ticket buying process can be done within the app.
But the new app also aims to be social, and a way for music lovers to discover events and maybe other artists they’d like. Via the app, you can tell friends which gigs you’re going to or considering. There’s also a section for music news relevant to the countries it serves.
Sarah Verry from GigOut tells us that the GigOut app will make money from advertising, as well as ticketing affiliate partnerships. The team is currently made up of six people.
GigOut’s iPhone app is free and it’s here. An Android version is in development.
