VROOM is an extensive searchable database that contains venue information including full listings of production and facilities, booking details and general information. It could be described as a one-stop essential resource for touring.

Venues can be searched via genre of music, venue type, capacity, suburb, town, region and/or multiple towns and suburbs plus more. VROOM encompasses all kinds of genres including jazz, experimental, rock, pop, electronic, hip hop, country, classical and blues as well as performing arts, comedy, spoken word and dance.

As an extension to the database, VROOM is also a resource centre and an online forum for venues and the music industry.
