AmptUp, the all-in-one live music booking platform, has signed the first of its venues in the vibrant city of Portland. Among the inaugural VIP partners are Artichoke Music and Alberta Abbey, two esteemed live music establishments deeply rooted in the city’s diverse local music scene and committed to empowering its musicians.
Independently owned and operated venues play a vital role in shaping their respective city’s diverse cultural landscape and contributing to the success of their hometown talent. That’s a lot of weight for one talent booker to carry, especially considering that they are typically tasked with so much more than filling their stages–coordinating schedules, negotiating contracts, and more. AmptUp lightens the lift for venues, simplifying and streamlining the booking process so talent bookers can focus on what matters most–curating killer lineups that fill seats.
“We understand the unique challenges faced by both independent venues and touring musicians, and we are excited to collaborate with Artichoke Music and Alberta Abbey to elevate the local music scene,” says Holly Hagerman, CEO of AmptUp. “Our platform is designed to democratize access to advanced booking technology, empowering independent venues to thrive in a competitive landscape.”
In just one month following AmptUp’s launch in Portland, venues around the country joined to become partners. AmptUp’s arrival in Portland and subsequent spread to other cultural epicenters in the US marks a significant step forward for the city’s music community. With a commitment to supporting local businesses and amplifying the voices of independent artists, AmptUp looks forward to fostering lasting partnerships with venues that share its dedication to the vibrancy of Portland’s live music scene.
“In the end, our goal is to support these independently owned and operated venues that showcase the incredible musicians who are the beating heart of their cities,” explains Hagerman.”
