The Fun Part!
Curate your dream event! Ask your guests to bring a plate or drink to share and enjoy a private, intimate performance in your home surrounded by your family and friends. Each guest contributes a pre-determined amount on the night which all goes to the artist (usually $15-$30pp). It can work with as little as 10 people!
'I so enjoyed my first House Concerts Australia hosting experience! A solo gig by Sophie Klein - the singer/songwriter behind up and coming Melbourne band "Little Wise". Sophie's gig was wonderful. As well as being a terrific singer she is both warm and engaging - with a great sense of humour too. She arrived to my home a stranger - and left with a heap of new friends and fans.' - Jane K, Host
'A concert in our lounge room is a very special occasion for us and our friends and in every instance for the artist also. Our audiences love the house concert stage, because they get to feel as if they have personal contact with the artist and share with them a life story in music. We have made so many new friends through the house concert scene, and I can say, without hesitation that musicians and music lovers are the kindest, coolest and most grateful people you would ever want to meet.' - Dr Fred de Munk, Host
'This site is a pure brainwave. Since joining we have been asked to host a concert for a well known US act and have also been contacted to host a duo from the UK in April/May. This is a great way to get more new music out into the community.' - Bernie F, Host
Definitely! We are happy to help guide you along every step of the way! After signing up you can also join our private facebook community where you can ask questions and interact with other hosts right across Australia. We will also send you a free “How To Host” guide when you sign up which will ensure you are on the path to hosting success!
Do I need insurance or any licences?
Since a house concert is an invite-only, private event held in a domestic environment you do not need to worry about promoter or event licensing. It is the same as if you hosted a birthday party in your home and hired a musician to perform!
I’m not sure I can get a big enough audience
We have seen successful house concerts with audiences of only 10 people, right up to 100! So there is definitely something for everyone!
What type of artists do you have?
A wide selection ranging from Australia’s renowned guitarist Slava Grigoryan to folk musicians, jazz artists, indie pop, rock, instrumentalists, you name it! Oh, and the wonderful Melbourne Guitar Quartet (pictured)!
