What people are saying


“The bottom line is that Side Door is a burgeoning online community. It is a place of music and arts discovery including high profile artists with large audiences, musicians debuting their first records with small gatherings, all genres, all ages, and inclusivity.”

“It was nothing short of magical. It felt cozy as well as deeply personal. BEST and I do mean the best $20 I’ve ever spent!”

Side Door Audience Member


“Side Door has completely changed the way we approach touring - while we still target traditional venues in major markets, we no longer stress about filling off-days with oversized soft-seaters in small towns. Instead we go straight to Side Door where we can often make 3x the money for a fraction of the promotional effort.”
