Show Me Your Tips

In our first four months, 39% of all the money that Artists have made on StageIt has come from the Tip Jar alone! This number goes against everything that so many people have said about music fans. But we bet on you, and today, we are all WINNING! Artists, Fans and Charlie Sheen.

You keep showing us your tips, and we will keep bringing you amazingly talented artists. So, what are you waiting for? Get your tips on at

StageIt @ SXSW

From March 16th until March 19th, the StageIt crew will be broadcasting live from the SXSW music festival in Austin, TX. We’ll be meeting with new artists left and right, introducing the StageIt platform to thousands, and even launching our first marketing campaign. Needless to say, we are pumped!

Will you be there? Let us know via [Twitter] or [Facebook]. Additionally, keep your eyes glued to our lovely social media outlets to stay updated on our whereabouts during the week (come say hey!)

Oh, and in case you hadn’t heard, we are throwing a little [party] while there.

Feeling left out? Keep a watchful eye on for links to SXSW StageIt shows. Expect the unexpected.

SXSW Late Hangover Breakfast

We are headed to Austin, TX for 5 days of drinking, otherwise known as SXSW. To cure your hangover or keep your buzz going, join us for our Late Hangover Breakfast (read: FREE) on Thursday, March 17th at Kung Fu Saloon from 11am-1pm.

Roll out of bed, and come chill with us! We will be serving up traditional breakfast, free Urban Detox to cure the hangover, and free mimosas to keep it going.

510 Rio Grande Street
Austin, TX 78701
(512) 469-0901

You must be 21+ to attend. Invitation and RSVP do not guarantee admission. First come, first served. Photo ID required for admission. Invitation is non-transferable.

*hangover not required.

New Feature: Pay What You Can (PWYC)

PWYC lets artists offer tickets for a suggested amount instead of a fixed price and lets the fans increase or decrease the price depending on what they can afford.

It is our belief that artists make music to be heard. With PWYC, artists can now include more of their fans in the StageIt experience.

How it works:

  • An artist enters a suggested donation amount.
  • The show page shows a ticket price of Pay What You Can
  • On the show page, a fan clicks the BUY button and is given the option to manually change the price as high or low as they like. Yes, even free, if the fan has empty pockets.

We hope this allows more people to come experience StageIt shows and support their favorite artists however they can.
