The Side Door team has been working toward developing a strategic plan outlining short-term and long-term goals for equity, diversity, and inclusion at the company to ensure we are meeting everyone where they’re at. This is the beginning of our journey of an ongoing commitment to creating an equitable community and company.
Remember pulling an all-nighter to write a paper? You finally get it done and accidentally hit escape instead of save. The worst! Our latest platform update automatically saves all your hard work when building a show.
Side Door announces a partnership with SXSW called Side Door to SXSW, which will book curated tours for six selected SXSW showcasing artists traveling to Austin, TX for this year's festival and conference. Each touring experience will be documented along the road, culminating with an official Side Door to SXSW showcase on March 18th, 2022 at the Drafting Room.
There's nothing like the anticipation leading up to a show, but nobody wants to wait in line for what can feel like hours to see their favourite artist. Our latest platform update gives In-person show creators the ability to streamline the check-in process by scanning ticketholders QR code(s).
Over the past two years, we’ve invested our time into our online show and ticketing solutions. In 2022, we maintain focus on ensuring artists have a space to perform and the ability to earn revenue from their performances. Whether it’s self-booking a show in-person or online, or helping them match with great venues or presenters, it’s our big audacious goal to open as many (side) doors to new and existing stages as possible.
Our new navigation menu simplifies the Side Door experience by allowing you to select between Ticketing, Connect, and Audience. Get to where you want to go quicker by choosing if you want to build and manage a show or series (Ticketing), find artists and spaces (Connect) or buy tickets to upcoming shows (Audience).
Remember that scene from Wayne’s World when they get all access passes to Alice Cooper? Our latest platform update allows audience members to experience that same thrill and more! Show creators can now assemble a series of shows and sell passes with access to every show. You can even create multiple types or tiers of passes. Party on!
We continue to add more robust tools to our ticketing platform that allow for a seamless show experience for everyone. Sometimes show details change, like location or the showtime, or maybe you want to send out a special announcement like an exclusive Q&A happening after the livestream.
Our latest platform update allows show creators to email all ticketholders right on the platform.
This long-anticipated feature is a significant leap forward in the quest to make sophisticated ticketing supremely easy to use for both online and in-person shows. And we can't wait for you to multi-ticket to your heart's desire.
Building out a tour? Need to find some great spaces to play shows? Our latest platform update allows Artists to place radius pins (called “beacons”) in areas they plan to tour with date ranges of availability. This feature alerts Hosts in those areas like a lowkey bat signal!
Side Door launches BACK TO LIVE with Side Door, a new support program designed to increase live performance spaces by supporting existing spaces and helping first-time hosts get started.
