The Backline

Space LA features a full backline for music creators to check out. Learn more about our backline here.

“Crewpons”

We’re offering Music Lab channels one free day with a 3-person crew. Crews can be booked through November 2nd and can be available 9am – 9pm. Be sure to feed them well!

Use the “Space Request” form found here to book your crew, along with studio time.

We highly recommend booking your crew, space, and equipment as soon as possible.

If you need to cancel anything, send an e-mail to spacela@google.com with at least 48 hours notice. You’ll forfeit your crew if you cancel within 48 hours or don’t show up to your shoot date.

The Gibson Bus

Gibson Guitars is rolling their bus into the Space LA parking lot for music channels. The studio on wheels will be stocked with 3 Gibson guitar amps, 3 acoustic guitars, 4 electric guitars, 1 bass, and 1 baby grand piano. The bus is available for you to book from October 28 – November 2 in 4-hour slots.

Where do I sign up?

To book a slot, make an appointment on this Gibson Bus Google calendar. This is a different method than booking our stages. Just click on a time block you want and then click Save. To cancel a booking, go to your personal gmail calendar and delete the appointment.

Gear

Book any other equipment as you would normally at our Scheduling page. Assume you’ll be working with available light or request one of our battery-powered ring lights from the Backlot (there may not be enough power on the bus to plug in lights).

What does the bus look like?

We ask that you thank Gibson and link to the Gibson YouTube channel in your description.
