Website issues – updated

test photo

Ignore this post - the site is fixed and back up and running for submissions 


Hi everyone, since switching to our new webhosts we are having an error 406 issue which means new bands can not be added to the listings.  We're aware of the issue and trying to fix it asap so please bear with us until the fix is sorted.  You can still add gigs to the website, just not new bands, so if a band is not on the website that is supporting please add them into the extra info field, do not bother creating a new band as it will vanish into the cosmos!!


In the meantime here's a poster for the upcoming Opeth and Alcest tour, tickets can be found here.

Metalgigs is still going

Godsized Brighton Concorde 2

Just a very quick update for you all and a random photo of Godsized with an impressive beard.  This is just to let you know that gig listings are continuing to be updated, but news posts have stopped, i didn't want people to come on the site and think it's not being updated, it is on the listings page, just not on the news. I'd like to thank all the bands, promoters, and the public who are adding listings to help keep every one of our 10,000+ visitors a month in the know about the latest gigs.  

Due to ongoing personal family matters I will not be updating the news for the foreseeable future, but will continue with the listings side.  To all those that have offered to help during this period, the best thing you can do is add gigs if you see they are missing and keep the site listings fresh whilst I deal with the ongoing matters. Keep an eye and follow the facebook page as i will be using this for tour announcements and news updates from now on.  THANK YOU to all those that have reached out, your support is appreciated, Antony Roberts (Metalgigs owner).
