Bandsintown is a music website, which allows users to receive notifications about tours and bands playing in the user's area. It also has tools for artists to manage tour dates.[1]

Bandsintown was included in Business Insiders 2014 list of world's greatest apps.[2]

History[edit]

Bandsintown was founded in 2006 by Todd Cronin and Phil Sergi[3] and officially launched in 2007 as a concert discovery service. It was acquired by what is known today as Bandsintown Group in 2011.[4][5]

Brands[edit]

Bandsintown Concerts is a concert discovery app. It pulls data from a user's iTunes library, Facebook Likes, Spotify, Rdio, Google Play and Twitter accounts to pre-populate a customized list of tracked artists and local concert recommendations. Tour dates are collected from more than 200 primary ticket providers and booking agencies, as well as the artists directly.[6]

Bandsintown Manager is a collection of concert marketing applications for performers that allows them to list tour dates, promote events and facilitate direct contact with their fans.[7][8]

Bandsintown Promoter offers promoters, venues and labels marketing data and direct access to concert-goers based on their music taste and location. The platform identifies the number of “Trackers,” or Bandsintown users following a specific artist in certain geographic locations, that can be contacted via Bandsintown's email marketing program.[9]

Bandsintown Amplified is a multi-screen advertising platform that connects brands with fans and artists through a network of music publishers.[10]
