GigOut parties big on the iOS App Store with major ticketing partners

By

iOS app GigOut is now live globally to help concert-goers discover shows and purchase tickets without leaving their seat

You’ll never miss another concert again. Well, that’s what Singapore-based GigOut is promising users through its eponymous iOS app.

GigOut, an app which allows avid concert goers to find out more about the upcoming shows in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Hong Kong, and purchase tickets, has finally launched its app on the iOS App Store. It was first rolled out in June as a Beta version, to garner feedback from partners and early adopters.

Available globally, travellers from outside of Asia can use the app to grab tickets or discover new concerts. Users can also find out if their friends are attending the show. Traditionally, concert goers or fans would subscribe to official channels of their favourite performers, learn more from print, radio and online advertising, or get updates from friends.

Stefan Lim, CEO and Co-Founder, GigOut, told e27 that the team plans to cover more countries in Asia, and grow the team. GigOut also plans to launch an Android app by the end of 2013.

The app earns revenue through priority placement advertising and ticketing affiliate partnerships. It has signed on ticketing partners like EventClique, ApeSnap, SingTic, Tiket and PeaTix and will be announcing more partners soon.

Concerts available on the official app include Dave Elkins‘ upcoming Asia tour with concerts in Manila and Singapore this coming November, and Marc DeMarco’s gig at the end of the year.
