How GigSalad works
GigSalad is a fast and easy way to browse, contact, and hire the entertainers and services you need to make any event a success.
Here's how it works:
Find vendors & submit a quote request
Search our site for the service you are interested in booking and you'll get a list of appropriate vendors nearest to you. Scroll down the page to browse profiles and see what each vendor has to offer. You can read past client reviews, look at photos, and watch videos. With thousands upon thousands of performers, entertainers, and services listed on GigSalad, you’re bound to find the perfect fit for your event. When you find a vendor you like, click Fast Free Quote to request a customized quote for your event.
Or, skip the search and request a quick quote using the form at the top of any search results page and we'll then send your request to the most appropriate vendors near you.
When you request a quote, you'll be asked to provide a password in order to create a GigSalad event planner account. This account will allow you to easily access your requests, manage your event, and communicate with vendors.
Get quotes and message with vendors
Once a vendor receives your request, they'll review your event information and if they're available and interested, they'll send you a quote. If further details need to be discussed before getting or accepting a quote, you can easily communicate through our messaging tool or exchange phone numbers.
Book your event
Once you receive a quote you are happy with, you're ready to book. Just enter your payment and you're all set. We've designed it to be super easy, iron-clad secure, and lightning fast. When you book through GigSalad, you can rest easy knowing you're protected by our Worry-Free Guarantee.

Frequently asked questions:
- Do you perform background checks for those listed on GigSalad?
While we do our best to address any issues that are brought to our attention, we do not endorse, sanction, or verify those listed on GigSalad. We recommend that event planners be smart and thorough with their own research and verification if they feel uncertain about proceeding with a performer or vendor. And of course, should any serious issues be found, we would like you to please report them to us here.
- What is a Top Performer?
As you browse the site, you may notice that some vendors have a Top Performer banner on their profile. These are the vendors that we have determined, based on verifiable data, to be committed professionals, exceptional performers, and quick responders. Learn more here.
- Can I contact vendors directly or do I have to go through GigSalad?
We strongly encourage all users to communicate and finalize bookings through the GigSalad platform so that we can ensure you have a safe and secure booking experience, backed by our Worry-Free Guarantee. Read more about why you should book your event on GigSalad.
