Our History

It all started a long time ago…

As a child, Benedikt (the founder of Stage) loved to bang on pots and pans using wooden spoons. Ultimately, his parents decided that it would probably be best to enroll him in drum lessons. After a few years, he switched to keyboard lessons, but at some point he got a computer and his musical career went downhill from there. Today, he’s an experienced software engineer. But one thing never changed: His love for music.

Back in 2004, he started working with local bands and festivals, building websites and software tools for them. Around the same time, he also started working on the website of Nightwish, a very popular metal band from Finland. Over the years, he learned a lot about the requirements the bands had, as well as the technical challenges one faces when hosting the website of a popular band.

In 2015, he decided to boil down the experience he gained over the years into a single product: Stage.
