What is Stagend.com?
An online platform where you can find and book musicians, magicians, djs, and a whole lot of live entertainers for any kind of event all over Switzerland. Developed from the idea of and hard work of four friends (plus their families’ and friends’ great support).
How does it work?
On platforms such as Airbnb and Booking.com you can book a room, a flat or a house for your trip.
Likewise on Stagend.com you can book a live entertainer for your event: wedding, birthday, corporate event, party,…
Easy :) www.stagend.com
How did the idea come about?
We’ve asked ourselves:
Why there were many platforms that allow you to book a trip on the other side of the world, but none to find and book quickly a band or a dj for my event.
So we got down and worked on it… ;)

Why we need your support?
By sacrificing a secure salary, a lot of hours of sleep and many nights out with friends, with were able to go from theory to action and build an innovative booking platform.
Thanks to your support, we would like to go one step ahead and take our small startup to every person in Switzerland who is planning an event (and then also abroad).
What will we do with your help?
We will hire a professional photo- and video-maker that will tour all Switzerland to make videos and photos of artists and entertainers at events of all kinds (weddings, birthdays, corporate and public parties,…).
This in order to build the largest and more complete catalogue of live entertainers and enable anyone organizing an event to see exactly the kind of service the artist can deliver.
At the same time, we will help artists who do not have the means or the budget to do it themselves to showcase their talent with proper material.
Goals of the campaign
