With more than 700 studios (and counting), across England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Germany and the United States, there’s sure to be a Pirate near you. To make the most of your Pirate experience, we’ve outlined how to book, what to expect on your first visit and some useful tips.
It takes less than two minutes to set up your account and become a member:
Visit the account creation page.
Enter your details in each field. If you have a referral code from another Pirate customer, enter it at this point.
Select Create account and we’ll send you an SMS to confirm your mobile number. You’ll need to confirm this number before you can use your account.
Confirmed? You’re ready to book.
You need to have your identity verified before you book one of our DJ or production studios, so it’s a worthwhile investment! Being verified also unlocks extra Pirate features, like Refer-a-Friend credits. Don’t worry, the process only takes two minutes.
Book your session
Our live booking calendar shows the latest availability of studios. You can book anywhere from a year in advance right up until a few minutes beforehand. Some studios are popular, so we recommend securing your slot in advance.
TIP: Book enough time to set-up and get comfortable with the gear, and pack-down/pack-up anything you’ve brought along.
Your first session
Re-read your confirmation email
It has travel directions, codes for the front door, and codes for your studio. Every time you book a studio type for the first time (for example you're a DJ trying out a production studio), we’ll also send you a quick overview of that space and equipment.
We suggest you arrive at Pirate 15 minutes before your session to help orientate yourself, check out our common areas and find your studio.
Check out our accessibility homepage for more information should you need help ahead of your first session.
If anything breaks or needs troubleshooting during your session, please let us know as soon as you can. Contact us via live chat and we’ll help diagnose the issue. We carry spares on site so you can get back to playing again straight away. We also have loads of equipment guides you can read online.
You can hire various pieces of extra equipment for your booking, including cymbals and keyboards. While it's mostly free, some gear is chargeable — we've outlined costs and how to hire here.
We don't keep a record of lost property, so the simplest way is for you to pop back to the studios to take a look in our lost property cupboard/closet. Contact us via live chat to arrange.
