This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



GigPress is a powerful live performance listing and management plugin designed for musicians and other performers. Manage all of your upcoming and past performances right from within the WordPress admin, and display them on your site using simple shortcodes, PHP template tags, or the GigPress widget on your WordPress-powered website.

  • GigPress is intuitive and easy-to-use. Add artists, venues, tours, and related posts on-the-fly, all saved in your database for re-use, all seamlessly within the WordPress admin.
  • Manage multiple artists within GigPress, and display them either as a combined listing, or grouped by artist. Add an artist parameter to the shortcode and list only shows from a particular artist.
  • GigPress features RSS and iCalendar feeds for your upcoming shows and for individual artists and tours, plus Google Calendar and iCal download links for each individual show. It can also output structured data for search engines.
  • Advanced users can fully-customize the HTML and CSS used by GigPress to display your shows without altering any plugin files, making all changes upgrade-safe.
  • Link up a related post for each show and your show’s full details will appear within your post. Automatically create new related posts with customizable titles when entering new shows.
  • No lock-in here. Import your shows from a CSV file, without fear of duplicate data. Export your shows database to CSV – filtered by artist, tour, and date.

The team at The Events Calendar stands by our work and offers light support to the community via the support forums on a weekly basis. Feel free to ask a question if you’re having a problem with implementation or if you find bugs.

Since the latest update of the plugin, users are no longer able to have their GigPress dates appear on top of a boxed background (which either makes the text blend in with the background photo, or forcing all other pages to be boxed & in no way manipulatable). I love this app for keeping fans up-to-date on shows, past & present, but in recent times it's been nearly unusable for myself & my fanbase.

I don't know why everybody says it is "intuitive", it is not. In order to change the style of it, you have to modify the .css file and upload it via .ftp. That takes extra time. Plus, the browsers take some time to register the changes, so you have to wait 10 minutes to see if the colors you chose are right. Then, you have to go through all the css styles, and find what you want to change, everything is explained but... it's not intuitive at all.

Used it a number of times years ago, and glad to see it's still around, stable, and gets the odd update since being taken over. Would hate to see it disappear or become obsolete. Would 100% pay for it. Well built, intuitive, and really useful.

I loved this plugin until I looked at my site today and the DATES were no longer on the listings! Last support was a YEAR ago, so I am changing plugins.

Best concert listings plugin. Period. Please keep Gigpress alive, it's amazing in its versatility and quality. The visual customisations and backend exceed ANY other plugin out there so far.

GigPress is wonderful, but I can't really rate it 5/5, because the default show listing isn't responsive. In order to make the show listing responsive, you need to do quite drastic changes to the templates. Not for the inexperienced. I hope this will change, now that Modern Tribe is behind the wheel.
