Bandsintown launches subscription live music streaming service

By | Published on Wednesday 13 January 2021


Gig recommendations service Bandsintown has launched a new subscription offer for livestreamed shows, providing access to a programme of online live performances for a monthly fee.

For $9.99 per month (following a seven day free trial), Bandsintown Plus users will get access to 25+ live shows each month. The initial line-up for January and February includes performances by Phoebe Bridgers, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, Flying Lotus, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Little Dragon, Soccer Mommy and Toro Y Moi.

“For the past year, we’ve been hungry for live shows and for a chance to support the artists we love”, says Managing Partner of Bandsintown, Fabrice Sergent. “Bandsintown Plus is an opportunity to break the barriers of cost and location that have historically hindered live music experiences. Now, with Bandsintown Plus, live music can be more affordable, more accessible, and more approachable”.

“Touring artists have been economically ravaged by COVID-19’s restrictions”, he adds. “Bandsintown Plus is a chance to help innovate the industry, creating new sources of revenue for artists, while deepening connections with their fans”.

The platform will begin airing shows tomorrow, with performances by Melissa Etheridge and Sir Chloe. Find out more here.
