Bandsintown Announces Live Stream Expansion

As Bandsintown LIVE hits 10 million viewers in a month, the channel expands from 2 days of live performances a week to 5 days a week.

On May 11, 2020, Bandsintown is launching daily livestreams on its dedicated channel, Bandsintown LIVE. On the same day every week, Bandsintown LIVE will host a genre-inspired, themed channel showcasing emerging and established artists.

Monday 2-6 PM ET

A mix of both established and new country, alt-country, Americana and singer-songwriters

Tuesday 2-6 PM ET

New and rising artists in all genres

Wednesday 2-6 PM ET

An eclectic mix of music from around the world

Thursday 2-6 PM ET

Meaningful artists from the underground club culture to mainstream EDM, DJ, Dance, Urban, and Latin.

Friday 2-6 PM ET

Celebrate new music release day with artists playing Pop/Commercial, Rock/Indie Rock, K-Pop/J-Pop, Urban, and Latin

In addition to five days of genre-based programming, Bandsintown LIVE has weekends covered with BANDSINTOWN @ HOME bringing popular events right to your couch. Channel takeovers by Festivals, Charities, Venues and Cities including rebroadcasts and other experiments.

"We are fans first, and we know live streaming has something valuable to offer music lovers," says Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown's Managing Partner. "There's a striking intimacy to this format we think is here to stay. In a different way from live events, artists deeply connect with their fans. We are convinced that this will turn into new sources of income for such artists, helping them launch new music, sell merch or ticketed events."

Bandsintown has established itself as the leading global discovery platform for live music and a hub for artists to directly engage with their fans at no cost.
With the worldwide pause on physical live events, however, the company leaped into live streaming and now offers the most comprehensive listing of live streaming events, accessible to fans sorted by music taste, genre, date, or platform of choice.

New Revenue Source For Musicians

Bandsintown LIVE also becomes the first major live music streaming channel to empower artists with a tip jar while performing on the channel. 100% of the money received will go directly to the artist or a charity of their choice.

"By delivering a substantial new audience and adding a tip jar, Bandsintown LIVE gives artists a way to earn money while also expanding their fanbase," said Sergent, "and fans a way to support their favorite artists."
