Welcome to This Must Be the Gig!

This Must Be the Gig gives backstage access to passionate fans worldwide. Hosted by music journalist and festival-globetrotter, Lior Phillips, the show features conversations with headlining musicians, up-and-coming artists, music industry personalities, and notable journalists about the wild wild world of live music - as well as the latest news reports from the biggest tours and the festival scene.

In this preview episode, Lior shares her formative first concerts and gives a taste of what's to come: dishing on behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and dissecting breaking festival and tour news. Early episodes will feature legendary musicians like Garbage's Shirley Manson, The Charlatans' Tim Burgess, and Eleanor Friedberger, while future episodes will include conversations with festival founders on the way they dream up lineups, set designers on how the most imaginative stages become reality, app developers on the future of virtual and augmented reality at festivals, and buzzing artists on what it’s like to tour a new country for the first time. 

Every fan has a story about the gig that changed their life—and so does every musician. Capturing the feeling of singing along with thousands of other fanatics, the lights flashing, the roar for an encore, the second the whole world outside this perfect moment disappears: This Must Be the Gig.
