This plugin lets you add a BeatGig venue calendar to your WordPress site. Before you can embed a calendar, you’ll need to sign up for BeatGig as a buyer, and then create a venue.
You can get one from the BeatGig Website.

The easiest way to install the BeatGig plugin is to log in to your WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins -> Add New,
search for BeatGig, and click to install. You can also download the zip file from this page and upload it
from the Plugins -> Add New -> Upload page.

Once you’ve clicked install, wait for the spinner to finish loading. It might take a minute.

After it’s done, make sure you click the “Active” button. If the “Active” button is gray, that means it worked.

Now that you have activated your plugin, there is one simple step.

All you need to do is paste the BeatGig short code onto your WordPress page. The shortcode looks like this: [beatgig embed="venue-calendar" venue-slug="YOUR-VENUE-SLUG"]
You should replace the YOUR-VENUE-SLUG text with your venue’s unique slug.

To find your venue’s slug, open your BeatGig venues, click “View” on the one you want to add, and copy your slug from the URL you see at the top of your browser.

For example, if your venue’s URL is, then your venue slug is potbellys.

Your final WordPress shortcode would look like this: [beatgig embed="venue-calendar" venue-slug="potbellys"]
If you are embedding the artist application button, use this script instead, where it’s embed="apply-button": [beatgig embed="apply-button" venue-slug="YOUR-VENUE-SLUG"]

It’s that easy!

If your website is hosted on, and you are using the page editor, you’ll need to do this:

1) Click the plus sign to add a new block on your page.
2) Search for “short code” and click it when it comes up
3) Enter your venue’s short code from the steps above.
