The #GDNGig Map at bit.ly/T2d8P6 is an attempt to capture unforgettable moments and leave them pinned in space and time for people around us now and in the future to enjoy together whether we are friends or not.
People can report on local music happening in their area using Instagram, Twitter and n0tice, and as long as they've turned on location in their app and tag their reports with #GDNGIG those images and stories will be pinned to a living map of music across the UK, or indeed the world.
Can you capture the essence of a local gig with a photo? Do you have an unusual view of the band from the front, or a wider perspective of the show and the audience from the back? What does the queue look like before the show? Are people saying they enjoyed it after the show?
Report on your favourite local venue and encourage others nearby to go there more often. Tell everyone in the area about an up and coming local band that is worth noticing now.
While not every post contributed will find its way to the embeddable map, the full stream of activity can be found on the #GDNGIG noticeboard here including upcoming events happening near you.
Bands and artists can list their gigs on the noticeboard here, and venues can post upcoming acts they are hosting.
Developers can reuse the Guardian Live Gig Map code or tap into the n0tice APIs directly. All that is documented on n0tice.org.
Our hope is that the Guardian's Live Gig Map will help people discover local venues and local artists that they didn't know about and get out to see them more. And those who know about great local music will have a better platform for sharing what they know.
