Parlour is an online platform that allows artists to tour directly into their fan's homes.
Since launching in 2015, Parlour has facilitated over 2000 gigs around the world with artists such as Ben Lee, Sarah Blasko, Dallas Frasca, Sarah McLeod, Chris Cheney (The Living End), Robert Forster and Harry James Angus. Gigs have limited numbers and offer a unique experience to both artists and fans to make and appreciate music within the familiar setting of a home.
Now, as we approach a world emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, a return to regular touring for artists will still be a while away. Small capacity shows in fan's homes will be a safe, controlled way of reintroducing live music into the public sphere. Parlour is a way for artists to start playing, earning and connecting with their fans again.
Beyond just making these gigs easy to put together, Parlour provides a way for fans to directly support their musicians and the Australian Music industry, with 83% of each show's ticket sales going direct to the artist's pocket.
It's a way for artists to expand their revenue options, whilst building and connecting with their fanbase.
Artists/managers can sign up and start booking gigs almost immediately, and fans can campaign to request artists to play shows too.
With lockdown laws gradually easing across the country, now is the time to book your favorite artist to play in your home, and help the music industry to get back on its feet.
Tours on the horizon so far are Ali Barter, Busby Marou and the Pierce Brothers, with many more to come! If you are an artist/manager wanting to arrange a tour or one off show, click here.
