Gig and Earn’ with Peer-to-Peer Video Streaming In JOOX
Along with the ‘One World: Together at Home’ concert, JOOX are also launching a campaign that will allow local musicians – currently experiencing financial hardship through an inability to perform live – to stream directly to their fans using the JOOX app and get paid to do so.
At JOOX, we see this as part of an urgent need to do what we can to stimulate the economy during a difficult time. The ‘Gig and Earn’ campaign is how we give back to the people who drive our industry and make music possible – the artists.
Gig and Earn will work by paying artists to perform their music virtually – live and straight from their homes, using the JOOX app. The onboarding process is simple; musicians can get the JOOX app from any app store and sign-up. They can then apply for a booking, where a time and date for a 30min performance will be confirmed. Performers will receive R1500.00 for a performance.
