Bandsintown Launches Exciting New Social Features, Giving Touring Artists Innovative Ways to Better Engage with 23 Million Concert Goers
NEW YORK, NY (March 8, 2016) — Bandsintown, the premiere destination where artists and fans connect, has introduced two new features allowing concertgoers and their favorite artists to interact even more easily through the Bandsintown Concerts and Manager apps.
Artists can now send customized messages to all of their trackers which can be viewed through the app's activity feed. From the studio to the road to the merch table, touring artists can update fans on new albums, announcements, concerts, or simply say "We Love You Guys!"
Visit our tutorial here, plus learn all about the analytics view for the artists' messages to see how many fans are interacting.
Additionally, fans can now Track (follow) artists on Bandsintown with one click directly through artists’ websites – and without redirecting users to a separate site or social network (much like a Facebook’s Like or Twitter’s Follow).
All an artist needs to do is grab the code here and drop it into their website backend—Bandsintown will do the rest.
This is all in addition to Bandsintown Concerts’ recently released activity feed, where the app’s millions of users can see just-announced concerts, and what their friends are planning to attend.
"In the age of all things digital, social networks are the communities where artists and fans make meaningful connections," said Fabrice Sergent, CEO of Bandsintown. "Through our newly released tools, Bandsintown joins Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as one of the largest platforms for artists to take control of their own destiny, build their brand, and promote their events—reaching 23 million concertgoers who live to see them live."
“We're excited at the possibility of directly reaching our core fans who have shown an active interest in attending shows,” said Arielle Rubin, Digital Media Director of Mick Management. “Through Bandsintown’s platform, we'll be able to achieve this with the ability to message the Trackers we've developed over the years. As we’re planning out the next year for many of our artists such as Ray LaMontagne and WALK THE MOON, we’re thrilled that Bandsintown is making it easier to grow our Tracker count and further connect directly with fans."
