TL:DR: Surreal is a much better version of Muso, create a profile now, then wait for your venues to move over and start booking you 🎉
Firstly, why the name change??
In short, over the last 5 years, we have moved from representing just musicians and DJs to all types of entertainment - trivia, comedians, drag queens, and even mechanical bulls. We’ve realised that we need to do a better job to represent our whole performing community. The name ‘Surreal’ is more representative and communicates our full potential to everyone we work with.
Will the Surreal platform be like Muso?
Surreal is just like Muso. It’s just been given a makeover and an engine upgrade under the hood, we’ve kept the best bits of Muso and removed the worst bits. You’ll still be able to use Surreal in all the same ways for finding new gigs (the ability to show interest in gigs is coming soon), organising your bookings, and automating your invoicing and payment.
Did someone say international gigs?
Yep, you read that correctly. We’ve been hard at work launching Surreal in the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Surreal is now live there with a large number of reputable venues. This means that soon, you will be able to find gigs in other countries. It’s our first step to creating a global gigging network. We’re excited!
How is the move to Surreal going to work?
Each venue and venue group has been assigned an account manager to move them over to Surreal.
You will be notified in advance as each venue moves over to Surreal. Surreal staff will be assigned to each venue and will help assist you with any questions.
