Riffer Music is a trusted community marketplace for people and businesses to discover and book local musicians for any occasion and location. Our custom-made platform simplifies concert organization, which would otherwise be time-consuming and frustrating. We also handle the reservation of funds for the event and the transfer of funds to the artist after the event is completed. In addition, we save all agreements between the artist and venue to ensure all terms and conditions are met, including a cancellation policy.
Our principle is simple: we all succeed when the concert is successful. As a result, the platform is free to use for everyone, and our pricing model is fair for both parties. Artists do not pay anything, while event coordinators cover the fees.
