Welcome to Gig Junkies! Our passion is music – live music our drug! We love reviewing great gigs, music and bands and capturing all of those great moments with the best in music photography.
We make it our mission to review all the latest and greatest bands and gigs and ensure that a detailed music review is bought to you quick smart – if you missed the gig, fear not!
Gig Junkies launched in 2009 and we’ve been at so many gigs! From Frank Turner at the Wulfrun Hall way back in 2009, we’ve followed up and coming talent as well as some of the biggest festivals and gigs – Download, V Festival right across the UK and beyond into Europe. And we get exclusive access to some – check out our review of Dave Gahan and Soulsavers in London – just one of 5 international dates the band played!
Check out our A to Z of bands – here at Gig Junkies we’ve reviewed well over 1,200 gigs since we set out on our little journey!
Want to Contribute?
Gig Junkies welcomes new contributors to our team. You should be committed and enthusiastic, with a passion for live music and capturing that moment in an image.
While Gig Junkies will ask for access to gigs on your behalf – your agreement is that you supply content and images as soon as possible (preferably within 48 hours) to the agreed format that Gig Junkies require.
Please note – you can request a gig – the Editor’s decision is final as to whether you shoot or review it. Gig Junkies will apply for passes on your behalf – we cannot guarantee access but we will seek to do our best. You must agree to attend gigs you have requested and that have been approved by our Editor – and inform us promptly if for whatever reason you cannot make it.
Drop us a line with any links to reviews you have done and why you love music and why you want to review for Gig Junkies. An ability to write good copy and impartial review of an event is a must.
Get in touch with samples of your photographic work. You will need to have professional photographic kit and have the kit to shoot from a distance if required.
