Fan funding has become a part of many DIY musicians’ strategies. There are various fan funding companies like Kickstarter and PledgeMusic. On Music Think Tank, Ariel Hyatt features fan funding company, GigFunder. With GigFunder, fans can help bring bands to their hometowns for shows. This helps fund a tour and guarantee fans will be at your shows. What do you think of fan funding campaigns?
“It’s a novel approach to touring that works out beautifully for all involved. In this model, the band builds a campaign by stipulating their tour expenses.”
