Spotify team up with Bandsintown to help artists connect with and monetise their fanbase

Bandsintown, a live event discovery platform, announced its partnership with Spotify to boost concert and festival discovery worldwide, empower more artists, and enhance fan experiences. With Bandsintown event listings directly integrated into Spotify, artists can reach the right fans – while they’re listening – driving better engagement and stronger sales for their live events around the globe.

Jon Ostrow, Associate Director, Growth & Discovery, Live Events at Spotify, said, “Our partnership with Bandsintown reinforces our commitment to help artists connect with and monetise their fanbases. With more concert listings and data directly sourced from artists, this integration gives artists more control to update their tour schedules on Spotify and ultimately improves the fan experience of discovering and purchasing tickets.” 

Fabrice Sergent, co-founder and managing partner of Bandsintown, said, “Bandsintown is on a mission to help artists get discovered and sell out shows. With Spotify on board, we are bringing artists and fans closer in a world where every show counts, and every fan matters.” 

The partnership comes at a time when artists and venues face rising costs and increased competition, with 150,000 more concerts in 2023 than in 2022, based on Bandsintown data. As fans continue to demand authentic, community-driven experiences, Bandsintown and Spotify are teaming up to bridge the gap and ensure every artist gets their deserved spotlight with Spotify having increased impressions for live events across its platform by 10x in the last 12-months alone.
