A simple event calendar created for musicians but useful for anyone. Supports multi-day events, styled text, links, images, and more.
I'm Matthew Fries (that's where the MF in MF Gig Calendar comes from) and I'm a NYC jazz pianist and part-time web developer.

Requires WordPress 3.3 or newer because of the changes to the WordPress WYSIWYG editor. Personally tested up to 3.8.

As a general rule I've tried to keep this as simple and flexible as possible. If you're a musician and you want really fancy - ticketing info, mapping, tour grouping, and all the bells and whistles you can stand - you should check out "Gigs Calendar" by Dan Coulter over at blogsforbands.com. It's a great plugin that I've also used quite a few times on other sites that has all kinds of cool features specific to musicians and fans. Really, it's great.
Requires: 3.3 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.8.3
