Concepts and promotional support
The GigSwap Motel & more
The GigSwap Motel is a concept we fabricated, say 'crafted', which embodies a little bit of everthing what is about: travel, open cultural encounters, international meetings...And what goes better with that than live music?

The GigSwap Motel is a 'portable concept' by means of a 'road sign' you can paste to any GS live event. The f
irst half of 2009 we hosted 6 'live music parties' in Utrecht, The Netherlands, at the Kargadoor cultural centre, working together with the lo_friday music organisation. A great example of how things may unfold and work for you aswell.

Under friendly conditions we can share this and other concepts. As a member of the community, send us a message and should we agree on terms, you get permission to use this concept.
The GigSwap Motel just one of the sub concepts developed  to make the idea even more attractive and visable, and appeal to a wider audience.

Poster templates and promotional support
We have poster templates for you to use, and also can help giving advice on how to 'set things up'. A lot of the things you will face organising your own night at some venue are exactly what we are experienced in by now. So, get in touch and we can be our guide! is about
