Bandsintown is bringing an all-new subscription service to our newfound world of live-streamed music events. For only $9.99 a month, you can access “over 25 live concerts a month” with Bandsintown PLUS. Alongside being able to watch exclusive live-streams of your favorite artists, fans will also be able to participate in exclusive Q&A’s, interviews, and live chats.
The first two months of 2021 from January to February will include a wide variety of artists. You can find artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Adrianne Lenker (Big Thief), Flying Lotus, Chromeo, Little Dragon, and many more.
According to Billboard, Bandsintown managing partner Fabrice Sergent explains the reasoning behind Bandsintown PLUS’ new business model.
“We thought that there was an opportunity to create a new model to leverage the relationship between the artist and Bandsintown using the data we’ve collected over the past year due to the pandemic. We are trying to create a platform which is really different and unique in its ability to curate an innovative experience build around live shows. No live shows that are prerecorded, but shows that really are live and can include fan Q&A interviews and direct interaction with artists.”Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown managing partner (source: Billboard)
Due to the pandemic, the music industry has had to resort to new and peculiar ways to let the shows go on. From live-streamed shows to drive-in concerts, Bandsintown PLUS will provide another outlet for artists and fans to unite. According to the Bandsintown managing partner, artists will also be paid performance fees for playing on their platform.
