Spotify will be promoting thousands of concerts from their new partnership with Bandsintown, increasing sales for artists.

Fans and artists rejoice as Spotify are putting even more of an emphasis on concerts in the app. A new partnership with Bandsintown sees Spotify adding potentially millions of concerts from the live music platform.

Concerts available from Bandsintown will be shown in the Events section on Spotify artist profiles. Listeners can view the dates for an artist’s upcoming shows and with a simple click head through to buy tickets for them.

For a while now, fans have been able to connect their Bandsintown accounts with Spotify to be notified when artists they follow have concerts nearby to them. Now all Spotify users will be able to see and check out concerts from their platform within the Spotify app.

Bandsintown say that more than 150,000 more concerts took place in 2023 than in 2022. They also most recently claimed that 2.3 million live events are listed on Bandsintown each year – a whole lot of concerts coming to Spotify!

Bandsintown co-founder and managing partner, Fabrice Sergent said: “Bandsintown is on a mission to help artists get discovered and sell out shows. With Spotify on board, we are bringing artists and fans closer in a world where every show counts and every fan matters.”

Spotify’s associate director of growth and discovery/live events, Jon Ostrow added: “Our partnership with Bandsintown reinforces our commitment to help artists connect with and monetise their fanbases. With more concert listings and data directly sourced from artists, this integration gives artists more control to update their tour schedules on Spotify and ultimately improves the fan experience of discovering and purchasing tickets.”

Artists can link their Spotify profile to Bandsintown so that when they add concert listings they will also show up on Spotify. The events will show on artist pages, Spotify’s dedicated Live Events feed, and also in the Now Playing view of the currently playing artist if they have listings.
