Bands, artists, venues, promoters, booking agents, managers...anyone wanting to display events on their website can use the gigCalendar 1.0. Here are a few of the great features:
- No HTML, no BS - stay a musician, not a geek!
- Fast & simple to use - book the gig at 3:00, have it on the website at 3:05!
- The gigCalendar remembers all of the details for you - only enter it once!
- Editing or deleting info is simple, obvious and fast. No waiting on someone else!
- Share the load: band members, staff, management or other trusted users can add new venues, bands, and gigs to your gigCalendar
- Old gigs hide automatically so you don't have to remember to remove them!
- gigCalendar automatically creates map links to help get your audience to the show!
- Did we mention that the gigCalendar is free?
- gigCalendar display is customizable to maintain your site's 'look & feel' and branding. Define color schemes specifying font size, font face and images
- Want to remember the name of that great soundman and bartender? Perhaps a note to remind yourself to park in the back or to get a room somewhere other than the provided accomodations? gigCalendar lets you add comments, links and images to any gig or venue in the WYSIWYG editor of your choice - just like a word processor!
- Fans can subscribe to your gigCalendar with the included RSS streams
- Permission feature to only show special gigs to registered users or only to admins. Use this feature to show tentative dates only to other band members and management, special Fan Club shows only for registered users, etc...
- Fans can add individual gigs to their local calendar using iCal and vCal formats (works with Outlook, iCal, Mozilla, Sunbird, Palm Desktop, etc)
- No third party banner ads on your page - this is your website!
- Automatically list "X" number of upcoming gigs on your site
