Venue & Live Entertainment Business Name Generator & Ideas

Big Concerts

Electric Factory

A name that clearly communicates the clubs style of entertainment and target audience.

Live Nation Entertainment

A long-winded, yet effective name. The reference to ‘nation’ is meant to invoke feelings of camaraderie and patriotism towards the company.

Venues Live

One of the least interesting names in the industry. As it is a business-to-business company, an exciting, interesting name isn’t as vital as a B2C (business-to-consumer) company

Kingsplace

The use of royal terminology, a popular naming strategy helps the venue attain a more sophisticated feel.

Partyhouse

A name that couldn’t be tackier. It works because it hints at a sort of playfulness and fun that is lax at other party establishments.

The Hideout

A nod to those who use bars, pubs and other establishments to hide-out from their daily lives.

House of Blues

A name that clearly communicates the clubs style of entertainment and target audience.

Radio City

City reflects the size, but also the community that the people who attend the venue make.

The Joint

Slang for ‘a cool place to hang out’. The casual language helps attract the right people to the venue.

Marketing Strategy & Useful
Advertising Terminology

Live events have the disadvantage of space limits and rely on the regional clientele to fill up their show/event. For this reason, they charge high prices for a sought after performer and give free entrance for events of an unknown artist. The goal is to maximise ticket sales and the consumption of alcohol and snacks while inside the venue.

One night only, over-18s only, the use of the performer as a pull factor, free entrance, ladies enter for free, golden circle, live, never before seen

Clientele & Interests

Live event goers are after a good time. They want to see entertainment in a genre they have an interest in (say rapping, hip-hop, ballet, etc.) and want the entertainment to be of the highest possible quality. For exceptional performers, performing in a genre they like, they are willing to pay high prices.
