GigLocator was a Surrey-based music aggregation website that had worldwide listings from major ticket providers and independent venues.[2] The website allowed users to track when and where bands and artists were playing as well as allow users to buy tickets.[3][4] GigLocator was founded in August 2009 and the website had hundreds of thousands of users at its peak in 2011[4] before shutting down in June 2012.

History[edit]

GigLocator Ltd. was founded on August 6, 2009[1] by James Proud after one of his friends had trouble locating tickets for a Madonna show.[3] Proud sold the company in June 2012 to Peter Shapiro, the owner of Brooklyn Bowl, for an undisclosed amount.[2][5] The GigLocator website shut down on June 19, 2012[6] and the company was dissolved on March 5, 2013.[1]

Proud would later found Hello in August 2012,[7][8] a sleep-tracking company that shut down in June 2017.[9]
