Who are we?... We are an advisory group of participants set up to oversee and advise the Gig Buddies Sydney project. We catch up monthly and help shape Gig Buddies Sydney going forward.

Gig Buddies Sydney prides itself on being a truly user led organisation. If you think we can make Gig Buddies better... we want to hear from you.
