AGNT is a revolutionary new outlet that connects DJs and organizers in a complete end-to-end process. Built by EDM industry pros, Mike Henderson, Viet Nguyen and David Nguyen, the platform is a marketplace with access to thousands of DJ’s and event listings for any style or budget across the U.S. and Canada that utilizes a suite of tools to seamlessly manage all the logistics and transactions from beginning to end.
“The EDM market is worth $6.9 billion globally and within that there are an estimated 1.3 million unrepresented DJs,” says Viet Nguyen, AGNT co-founder. “As it stands the entertainment industry frequently relies on word of mouth to secure talent and the current model of booking DJs is really inefficient - countless emails back and forth, limited access to artists and failed payments. We saw an opportunity to offer a streamlined service that would provide access to great talent with a simplified search and booking process while still allowing artists to represent themselves, saving everyone time and money.”
To set up an AGNT profile, users can sign up as either a DJ or event organizer for free using their email or Facebook login. For DJ’s, AGNT becomes a self-promotional tool that also boasts a built-in music player to feature DJ sets. A DJ’s customizable profile can include a bio, portfolio links, required equipment, price range, calendar availability, social reach, cancellation policy and more. It gives DJ’s the ability to view all upcoming promoter listings within a designated radius and send in an expression of interest to perform at listed events.
For event organizers, bookings are simplified allowing them to search based on a DJ’s location, genre of music, date and price. The fully automated system includes verified DJ reviews and advanced event management tools to handle all event logistics, negotiate fees and secure payments. Once a match is made and both parties have confirmed the booking, AGNT will coordinate payment charging a 6%-10% service fee.
