Recently , thousands of fans of Pearl Jam, John Fogetry , Bob Dylan and other big names, came together to support a new start-up called Fan-a-gig , not only support but having a positive belief of bringing their favorite legendary artists to perform live here in India !!!
Fan-a-gig, a Bangalore based start-up kicked off its 2 months trial site to see how serious people are , to go an extra mile, get some crowd–funding in order to have their fav international act to perform live here . As the name suggests its about fans, fueling a gig / concert . The control is given to fans to decide what band / artist they would want to listen to, and thereby giving them the power to fuel the gig , hence Fan-a-gig .
Currently they have campaigns going on for artists like Pearl Jam , Foo Fighters , Black Eyed Peas , CCR ( John fogetry) , The Res Hot Chilli Peppers. As mentioned by the founder of Fan-a-gig, Mr. Kabir Bhasin ( Co-founder, furlenco) – “ We are already receiving various requests within just 20 days of the launch, and people from as far as Shillong are requesting to run a campaign for their artists and showing huge interest in crowd-funding the gigs” .
This is a major milestone that Fan-a-gig has achieved in less than a month’s time .
Also, due to huge demands of not only international but also Indian artists , Fan-a-gig is now adding some top Indian artists too on their platform , to help people crowd-fund for them . One such example of this, is with their plans of running a campaign for Punjabi rap-star , Raftaar , to come perform for his huge fan following in Southern region of our country . Giving the audience a mix-match of location and artist , like never before, this music start-up is sure winning hearts of music lovers , already .
And for people who are still hearing about it for the first time, Fan-a-gig team has one message – “Sign up for the cause! Bring the revolution! Let’s make a change!” Let’s spread the word and make sure every Indian fan gets the chance of enjoying their artist perform live .
