The perfect place to let your inner fangirl out! Stageit has an awesome Live Chat that goes on right next to the show so artists can take song requests, answer questions and read comments and fans can talk and interact with each other.

5. Tickets are super cheap

Spending $200 on concert tickets is so yesterday. Stageit makes watching and interacting with your favorite artists super affordable! The artists choose the ticket price to their show. Tickets can range anywhere from "Pay What You Can" to a fixed price. The typical show is about $5.

6. The Top Supporters win prizes!!!

During the concert fans have the ability to tip the artist any amount they want! Artists will typically offer prizes for the fans that tip the most during the show! Prizes can be anything from a one-on-one Skype call to a signed CD to a handwritten lyric sheet.

7. It's a great way to discover new music

GIPHY

There are a ton of concerts every week on Stageit. Because tickets are super cheap, it's a fun way to discover a new artist or band that you may have never heard of before.

8. No dress code required

Why get all dressed up, drive, park, and stand in a crowd for 3 hours when you could watch from the comfort of your own home. No pants..... No Problem

9. Concerts actually start on time!

We know this one is hard to believe..... but artists actually stick to their show time! If an artist is ever running behind they will add on time to the show and alert you! They have a clock counting down the time to the show as well as how much time the artists have left to perform

10. It's convenient for the artist and the fans

Have you ever been to a concert where you can tell the musician is tired of touring and not that jazzed to be there? The great thing about Stageit is that it's easy for the fans and the artists. The artists pick when, where and what to play and how much to charge for a ticket. Fans are often involved in this process using social media to give their input on when a show should be or what kind of songs they want to hear! Artists and Fans can plan out a show together!

11. You can get tickets FOR FREEEEEEE

Don't have enough money to spend on a ticket but really want to see a performance? You can use Stageit's feature called "hitch hiking" where you request a ticket for a show by "hitching a ride" and then other Stageit users can pay your way and buy a ticket for you!

12. You can sing and dance like no one's watching.......because no one is

Giphy

Sing your heart out, dance your ass off because you don't have to be embarrassed at what a crowd full of people thinks. No one can judge you in your own home......except maybe your dog.

13. Artists can perform as much as they want!

Giphy

Touring is expensive and tiring for musicians but, since Stageit gives the control to the artist, they can perform as much as they want. A lot of artists on the site will do a show once every month!!!! With so many shows you may think it could get old but it actually gives the artists more freedom. Some change it up by assigning a different theme to each show or some have a show every few months dedicated to a specific album.

14. It's a great way to spice up a date night, dinner party or night at home

Staying home can be fun! Especially when you have a live concert right at your fingertips! Use it as background music or have a concert watching party. However you watch Stageit, it's a great way to experience music in a new and fun way all within the intimacy of your home!

15. You can gift tickets to your friends and family!

Coming up with new and creative gifts for everyone in your life can be a struggle. Gifting tickets and "Notes" (Stageits form of currency) is a great idea for the music lovers in your life!

16. Each concert is truly a one-time-only experience

Stageit shows aren't recorded or archived which means each concert is an experience that you share with that artist and other fans. It makes live music from home enjoyable and special!

17. You're actually supporting the artists!

We've all heard by now that the music industry is changing and talented musicians are struggling to complete projects for their fans. Just one show on Stageit can help raise money to complete an album, go on tour or shoot a music video. Your money is actually going to the artists to help them keep doing what both they and we love!
