With Bandsintown LIVE passing 10 million viewers since launching just a month ago, the live music streaming channel is expanding from 2 days of weekly live-streamed performances to 5.
Alongside the expansion comes a new monetization opportunity for artists.
On the same day every week, Bandsintown LIVE will host a genre-inspired, themed channel showcasing emerging and established artists.
Every Monday 2-6 PM ET
BANDSINTOWN OUTSKIRTS – A mix of both established and new country, alt-country, Americana and singer-songwriters.
Every Tuesday 2-6 PM ET
BANDSINTOWN DISCOVERY – New and rising artists in all genres.eVERY
Every Wednesday 2-6 PM ET
BANDSINTOWN FUSION – An eclectic mix of music from around the world
Thursday 2-6 PM ET
BANDSINTOWN ALL THE VIBES – Meaningful artists from the underground club culture to mainstream EDM, DJ, Dance, Urban, and Latin.
Friday 2-6 PM ET

In addition to five days of genre-based programming, Bandsintown LIVE has weekends covered with BANDSINTOWN @ HOME bringing popular events right to your couch including Channel takeovers by festivals, charities, venues and even cities plus 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.”
Global Hub Of Live Music Streams
With 55 million registered users and 530,000 registered artists, Bandsintown has already 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. Almost 3000 live stream events are posted on the platform at any one time and artists are given free tools to promote their streams to their fans.
A New Revenue Source For Musicians
In addition to the expansion, 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.”
