Viberate 3.0: Never Miss the Next Big Act

“Nothing gets my juices flowing more than a full inbox in the morning.”

… said no one ever.

We get it. If you’re a promoter, event organizer, venue owner, A&R or manager, your day can start with such an amount of emails that it’s plain impossible to go through them all efficiently. But among all those artists’ pitches, there’s often a diamond in the rough. And imagine banging your head against the wall a few years from now, when you see the exact same artist who once contacted you blowing up — and you missed out on it.

How to do your research? Where to double check the up-and-comers? The time-consuming nature of this venture can leave you sticking only to the artists you already know. On the other hand, similar problems arise for those of you who are just starting. Where to go when you want to book somebody? How do you bring your ideas for an event into action?

These are all questions we’ve asked ourselves already, as our backgrounds include a thousand and one roles behind the scenes of the music industry.

That’s Why We’ve Built Viberate 3.0

The complete overview is now at your service. With over 1M up-to-date profiles, Viberate combines artists, venues, events, and festivals into a truly comprehensive global music network. With this, Viberate has become the largest resource of reliable information for the music industry.

So, how to use it?

Let’s Get Specific

1. Find everything you need in an artist’s ID

Now artists get their own digital ID with rich up-to-date content that provides all the information you need. Fear not, there are more than 460k artists on our platform, so you’ll surely find the one you’re looking for. In fact, we dare you to try find somebody who’s not here.

Up-to-date artist’s ID provides all the information you need to make data-driven decisions.

Artists’ IDs include:

“Music Network” is a novelty in the music industry. If you’re looking for proof that an artist is respected by peers, check who follows them on social media, rated by popularity.

Discover who’s following the artist with the feature that has never before existed in the music industry.

With more and more artists on board every day, the chances of receiving a Viberate ID instead of a one-pager will increase in the future — making the process standardized and clear.

2. More opportunities to pitch gigs

This goes out to event organizers on the hunt for the perfect venue and managers looking to pitch new gigs for their artists.

There are 130k venues in our database, and it’s easy to pinpoint the one that’s just right. Filter venues by type, capacity or genre of the artists they book most frequently, and add any special requirements. Once you get to a specific venue, you can even check which artists have performed there previously.

If you want to push your artists to the festival level, Viberate opens up a world of opportunities. With 5k festivals on the platform, it’s simple to discover the right one for your artists to play at. To narrow the options, filter them by country, genre, size, special features, and timeframe.

Use the filter option to find the perfect venue.

3. Build your roster

Viberate doesn’t only allow effortless due diligence, but is also a great discovery tool. To avoid running in circles with performers you already know, we’re giving you ways to branch out and maybe even spot the next big star.

What do you have to do?

Follow the artists on Viberate. That’s how you’ll create your own board you can return to anytime you want to track their performance in one place — and make solid decisions based on data.

Discover artists by genre, subgenre, and location and create your own board.

There’s even more coming soon: a feed that will notify you about new developments in real time. For example: “An artist you follow has released a new song that has reached 10k plays in one week.” Or: “A band you like is coming to your city in one month.”

With Viberate, everybody in the music industry is one big step closer to each other. We’re on our toes to see how the pieces of the puzzle come together. There’s another big group that makes the magic happen — music enthusiasts who contribute to our database, discover new music on the platform, and look for the next concert or festival to attend.

New things are in store and we’ll be checking in soon.
