Plugged / network for local musicians


"Plugged" is a network which organizes and simplifies the everyday life for local musicians.
The app provides an overview of local musicians, practice rooms and events in their own "Musical neighborhood". It is a space for bands, promoters and music teachers to organize each other.
To facilitate the search for new musicians, common musical interests of the users are matched. Plugged provides a "buddy tracker" for concerts so that musicians can contact personally on site. The E - Ticket involvement of the app facilitates local bands the sale of tickets for their concerts.
