Our mission is to ensure that people across the world have a joyous experience through amazing and inspiring performances or fabulous events. Entertainment is the universal language of the world. We want every performance experience to be an ultimate one. Artists 4 Venues is the platform for performers, a talent connection for venues, and an event planner for people who love to party. Through Artists 4 Venues, talented artists and successful venues are able to meet their perfect match and make a deal. In providing artists and venues with a comprehensive marketplace for talent, we are hoping to build the largest global destination for quality performing artists to find fulfilling employment and career opportunities. We strive to be champions for our members and join them in their pursuit of bringing entertainment and enjoyment to the people.

Founder and CEO, LaShanda Gilliam, wanted to transform the way new performing artists find employment. It can be difficult for a new artist to find the best platform that allows them to grow in their craft, obtain exposure, and ultimately secure employment. Always rooting for the underdog, Artist 4 Venues launched in 2017 in an effort to allow performing artists around the world to dominate a stage, the audience, and their dreams.

Artists 4 Venues will help you pursue your dreams of living out loud!

I joined Music Biz Besties because I love joining forces with other women that are passionate about music and entertainment. I believe that developing friendships and business alliances with people that are smart, hardworking, and share your passion is a beautiful and prosperous relationship. I want to be able to grow and learn as a professional in the music industry and seek the guidance of my sisters in the industry.
