Nearly six months ago we shared our vision with you about wanting make a career in the live music industry easy and attainable through our software, and we are happy to share with you that we are working diligently to make that happen. A couple of months ago we launched Massive Act’s private beta and it’s going great!

As we kicked off our private beta testing, we were very happy to have Minec, which showcases all this Caribbean talent to talent buyers around the globe, be our first music festival in the system. We are also excited to share with you that we have nearly 200 artists and over 40 talent buyers (including seven venues and two festivals) testing out our software right now.

Though we have a lot of great software features with Massive Act, our current prized possession is the tech rider feature, which helps you build one of the most essential things in touring through a simple, interactive platform. We are working hard to prepare more features that will make the tech rider the best tech rider feature on the market.

We can’t wait to take all the learnings we get from the Massive Act’s private beta, and work them into creating a better product for everyone out there trying to live their dreams while making a decent living. We hope you join us on this journey, and thanks for supporting us this far.

Along with the excitement of private beta, a spotlight has been placed on Massive Act with our CEO Carolina Castilla speaking recently at the Maui Music Tech Experiment! last December. She will be speaking once more next week at SXSW in Austin, TX. Carolina will share her expertise on the Tech Innovation in Latin American Music Festivals panel at 2:00pm on Thursday, March 16th at the Austin Convention Center Room 10A. Click here for more information.

A little more about Minec in their own words: The Archipelago of San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina is a group of colombian Islands that has a strong cultural connection with the Anglophone and Francophone Caribbean. Due to this connection between South America and the Caribbean that occurs in our islands, dominated by rhythms such as Reggae, Zouk and the Calypso and [Minec is] where the artists perform their music in Creole, English and Spanish.
