A new APP that will help the music industry is heading our way – with its origins from right here in Adelaide!

NXTGIG says it’s the “first ever platform built specifically for the entertainment industry to entwine geolocation with brand profile and messaging services all in one space.”

Meaning, live performance is the key point of connection for its users, whereby NXTGIG notifies users of gigs happening nearby, no matter what city you’re in across the globe.

Artists can use the app to and find new fans and connect with your existing base, share artwork, promote new tour dates – it even has a point of sale directly in real time.

NXTGIG’s CEO is Karl Fazon, who those in Adelaide may know from his support and enthusiasm for the Adelaide Music Collective. He tells us that the NXTGIG app will be released in the Aussie Apple and Google stores on the 25th of March.

“Early Adopters” can visit the official website from the 16 March, create an account and submit your gigs.
