eGigs is just starting out ....

if you have an idea on how to make this website better, please post your suggestions, and the best *will* be incorporated into this website.

There are many features to still be added - to help you get the best from this site - over the next couple of weeks, and so it could be that things you suggest are already planned.

Meanwhile, you can help this site get started. The database of venues needs to be built up, to be a complete list of UK venues. So, if you'd like to help us by submitting details of any venues, then you can do that here.

Hi Neil,

You've been going a while now, and I wonder if you feel you need all the regional venue boards. I think they might make the board look a bit too cumbersome, and perhaps daunting to new users, and i wonder if it might seem better if they were simply in a merged 'venues' thread?

What does everyone else think?

yeah, it's something that I've considered doing.

Perhaps the way to do it would be to put them as subforums of a main "venues" forums (in the same way that Glasto has sub forums on the festivals boards)? What do peeps think?

Also, I guess if I were to do that, it might be an idea to further split out the bands forums, so there's few letters used for each forum? What do peeps think?

hi neil

how about a sticky for accomodation suggestions.
seen as public transport rubbish for gigs nowadays a lot of people forced to shell out for a nights accomodation :)

so would be helpful if people could list where they stayed after a gig
hotel, b+b etc.


a couple of reccomendations from me are
the thistle hotel in birmingham ,about a 15 min walk to the acadamy.

the grantly hotel shepherd bush london ,right opposite the empire ,also loads of takeaways handy for ya after gig munchies :(

both fairly priced imho ,worked out at 35 quid each for a twin room if my memorys correct.

great idea to post the info - but surely it can be posted into the Venues forums? I'm not sure it needs its own area.

It'd be much easier if eGigs listed which actual venue bands play at in Manchester, rather than the whole "Academy 1, 2, 3 & 4 (Manchester University), Manchester".

The problem with that is that the tour information I get very often doesn't split it down into the specific one
