Some of the ways Swindon Bands Directory works...


  • Some venues want a list of available musicians for a specific date to then choose their own to then book directly.

  • Some venues want a list of available musicians for a specific date to then choose their own and then get us to book them in. 

  • Some venues just give us the diary and budget and then leave it down to us to fill the relevant dates.

  • Some venues just ask for our directory to then fill their own dates directly.

  • Some venues ask us to share their details with the musicians on the directory and then the musicians contact the venue directly to source gigs.

  • Lots of private bookings use the website to decide what band/musician they want for their event and then either contact them directly or via SBD.

  • Other private bookings will contact us with the details, including if they are after a specific genre and then ask us to book something in or again send them a list of available musicians that fill their specific requirements.
