By | Published on Thursday 8 December 2016


Ticketing platform Eventbrite and gig recommendations set-up Bandsintown have announced a new partnership, which will allow gig goers to buy tickets listed on the former without leaving the concert discovery app.

“Concerts and live music experiences have always been an incredibly important part of Eventbrite, and this new partnership with Bandsintown provides our organisers with a super-targeted, direct connection to the most passionate of music fans”, says Eventbrite CEO Julia Hartz. “We’re proud to continue innovating with a best-in-class music partner to create exciting new products that ultimately get more concert-goers to the shows they love”.

Bandsintown’s Fabrice Sergent adds: “Over 50% of our concert-goers frequently go to see artists they had never heard of before they discovered them on Bandsintown. This makes Bandsintown a fertile discovery ground for Eventbrite’s event creators”.

Following the integration of Eventbrite ticket-buying into the Bandsintown app, the next stage of the partnership will be to allow users to access their ticket via Bandsintown, so that they only need to use one app.
