French startup LiveTonight has today announced raising €1 million to establish itself as one of the main players in the live music industry. The round was led by Side Capital, a French investment fund based in Paris.
LiveTonight, founded in 2016, is a musician booking platform, which allows users to find in just a few clicks the perfect musicians for any event. It’s easy to customise the performance and book easily online, with the LiveTonight team taking care of all the paperwork. With more than 500 available profiles all around France, there is no doubt you will find what you are looking for, may it be for a wedding, your birthday or a corporate event.
The vast majority of musicians are neglected by managers, producers and agents, which is a problem LiveTonight is working to make up for. The team, already made up of 14 people, plans to double its workforce in the upcoming six months in order to offer increasingly customized and timely services to its customers and musicians.
With this fundraiser, LiveTonight intends to accelerate its development and pursue its mission of developing live music in France. After organizing more than 2,500 music performances since its launch in 2017, LiveTonight intends to expand its activity by carrying out 4000 events in 2020, 16000 in 2021 and more than 30000 by 2022. Always with the same obsession, to offer unforgettable experiences and accompany musicians and event organizers with enthusiasm and passion
Renaud Guillerm, Managing Partner of Side Capital, commented, “LiveTonight is a project led by a team of enthusiasts who have identified a real problem and tackle it with a simple and effective solution. It’s a real pleasure to be able to support the founders in the development of their activity in the upcoming years.”
