Any space is a venue.

Use your space to curate unforgettable experiences and bring the magic of live art right to your community.


Turn your into a Venue

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to hosting, Side Door gives you direct access to artists. Urban or rural, public or private, no space is too big or too small.

Connect with artists and build shows collaboratively. Whether you do it for love, or take a split of revenue, you get to book the shows that make sense for you.


How In-Person Shows Work



Show off your space

Literally any space, indoors or outdoors, can be a venue if there’s a motivated host at the helm. Give artists and audiences alike a sense of what to expect.

Spaces with thoughtful descriptions and brightly lit photos always get more interest on Side Door.



Find artists to host in your space

Browse artist profiles and connect in peace. Message the artists that interest you. Don’t worry about spam; we use a double-opt-in system to ensure it’s a good fit for everyone.



Build shows on your own terms using our industry leading booking tools

Decide whether the show will be available to the public, or just private for your community. If you need to recoup costs, our ticketing allows you to automatically split revenue with artists.



Work with artists to sell tickets

Establish a plan to get the word out. You know your community best! You can make a real difference for artists by championing them to your friends, co-workers, neighbours & family.

Use social channels, newsletters, word-of-mouth, or good old fashion gig posters. Use affiliate links to track sales from multiple sources in real-time.


Soak in the magic

Your community will love you forever

Prep the space and check folks in at the door from your guestlist manager.

There’s something truly special and intimate about shows in untraditional spaces. You’ll be giving your people an unforgettable experience.
