What we're about

Gig buddies was set up in early 2012 (thanks Nicola!) and has grown into one of the biggest and most active Brighton meetup groups.

Brighton is a fantastic place to see live music. We’ve got the venues, promoters, bands and festivals that make it special, but it can be frustrating if you’ve not got friends who want to go to the same gigs as you, and who can come out whenever you want them to. You might be new to Brighton, or your friends have “settled down” and stopped going out so much, or maybe you’ve come out of the other side of settling down yourself. Gig buddies is about getting the most out of the Brighton live music scene and meeting new friendly people while doing it.

It’s important that the group keeps the social side of things at its core, rather than it just being a gig listing site, so each meetup has an organiser who will make the arrangements for when and where to meet. For more details of how it works see our about (https://www.meetup.com/Brightongigbuddies/about/) page.

New people are always very welcome – get involved!

(You may have heard of the other Gig Buddies group in Brighton – the project run by the Stay Up Late charity. They match volunteers with people who have learning difficulties, to go to gigs together. We’re not connected to them, but you should have a look at their website (https://www.gigbuddies.org.uk/) and consider volunteering.)
