Have a space for a show?

Any space can be a venue.

Whether it’s a bookstore, barn, community center, or even a house concert - Side Door will help you find the right artist and host a show.


Customized Matches

Once you tell us a bit about your space and preferences you’ll automatically be matched with artists we think you might like.


Book a Show

Booking is easy and transparent. Side Door provides a link so your guests can easily buy tickets, anytime.


Focus on the Performance

Payout happens automatically after the show so you can sit back, enjoy the performance, and focus on spending time with your guests.

Mill Road Community Space (Community Space Shows) - Chelsea, QC

"We're very grateful to Side Door, an integral part of the musical offerings which are breathing new life into this historic place. They make it so easy, fun and rewarding to host shows”

Cory of McArthur Castle (House Concerts) - Kamloops, BC

“We’re no longer just a house in our community; we’re THAT house—the one where the best, least known moments of live music sometimes happen. And it’s all thanks to Side Door.”

Easy, trusted, and transparent


Create Transparent Contracts

Stop Worrying About Payouts

Cover Your Costs

Hosts can request a split of the show’s revenue to cover necessary expenses.
