Buruda Concert, a Korean concert planning platform officially opened its beta service on Monday, allowing musicians to book a venue and time to hold their own concerts. The website functions very much like the accommodation website Airbnb, but is designed for live music.
That is, musicians interested in performing can simply visit the site and select available options of time and venue. This provides convenience for musicians to hold their own concerts wherever and whenever.
Besides, the platform is also opened to music lovers, exposing them to be exposed to a variety of concerts. Music fans can simply purchase Buruda Tickets, that is presales tickets which will fund the concerts.
There is a gap in the live music industry between local undiscovered musicians and the demand for live music from private hosts and other venues.
Buruda Concert simplifies the whole process, providing a benefit to both musicians who are in need of a decent and economical place to hold a concert as well as event locations which are in needs of clients.
Buruda Concert currently has a fanbase of 10,000 music fans and 457 scheduled concerts to date, with performances by famous South Korean boy band Bulletproof Boy Scouts (BTS) and upcoming talents like Choi Hyo-in and Yozo.
“By lifting the burdens of the administrative complexities for the artists through already having the available venues and times as options, the website made it easier for the artists and the fans as well,” said a spokesperson from Buruda Concert.
