We want to make the booking of entertainment simpler and more accessible, making the world a happier place through the performance of live music and entertainment.
We believe that artists have the right to a sustainable career through live performance and provide a platform that helps them to do this.
We believe that every event in life can be enhanced through live entertainment and performance.
We believe that artists should have more control over their career and decide which opportunities are best for them.
What we do
Launched in June 2015, Headliner is an online marketplace bringing world-class artists together with bookers and event professionals. We have made it super easy to book live entertainment, whilst helping artists earn a sustainable living doing what they do best. Our in-house team vets every artist on our site, and we have a review system as part of our continuous vetting process. We are not an agency and our technology lets artists manage their bookings from start to end, giving the power back to the performers. In addition, we work with numerous event partners and artist partners to further help create amazing events and develop our great acts.
How it all began
It all started when two of our founders, Stan and Maria, decided to get married. Having worked in the music industry for years, and successfully set up gig-site Bandwagon, they assumed it would be easy to find and book the perfect band. Unfortunately they found the process confusing, time-consuming and unreliable (you can read the full story here). To solve the problem they teamed up with our third founder, tech virtuoso Rosario, and Headliner was born!
