As the music industry shirts its focus from live events to livestream performances due to the global coronavirus pandemic, artists and business alike continue to adapt. Now, Bandsintown, a leader in direct-to-fan engagement has announced the addition of WATCH LIVE fan alerts for online performances by their favorite artsts.
With the new feature, artists will be able to add WATCH LIVE listings on their pages that will link directly to their performance on Facebook Live, Instagram Live, other third party streaming hosts, and a new live music channel on Twitch Bandsintown launched today to host live concerts at live.bandsintown.com. They kicked off the new channel with a special set by producer/DJ Black Coffee live from South Africa.
The new Bandsintown Live channel will also host the multi-day Bandsintown Live Music Marathon next week Mar. 26 & 27 featuring both established and rising artists. The full lineup is yet to be revealed, but all donations received during the livestream will be donated to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.
WATCH LIVE will become available for free for artists on Bandsintown starting next week. For more information, visit the Bandsintown website.
