Bandsintown has launched 24 Worldwide, US and City Live Music Charts that will be published on Bandsintown, Bandsintown for Artists, and Hypebot starting today. The concert discovery platform has also partnered with Billboard to exclusively publish the Billboard + Bandsintown Tour Index, four weekly charts launching later this month.
These unique touring charts measure current fan engagement from Bandsintown's 50 Million registered fans alongside data from partners like Billboard, YouTube and Google who publish tour dates from Bandsintown. By tracking more than 500,000 clicks to ticket sites every day along with tracker (follower) growth and other fan engagement, Bandsintown has created the first-ever predictive measure of live music fan activity.
Buzzing, Emerging & Established Artist Charts
As part of their ongoing commitment to help emerging artists, Bandsintown, Bandsintown for Artists, and Hypebot will publish weekly buzzing and emerging artist charts for 10 major US cities, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, and San Francisco, alongside monthly Worldwide and US emerging and established artist charts.
In the coming weeks, Bandsintown will also roll out international charts.
“In a fast-growing streaming music world, there is nothing more true than real fans’ interactions and engagement at live music events to build successful and long-term artist careers,” said Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown Managing Partner. “Bandsintown’s dataset is unique in the marketplace as it highlights national and local rising stars based on fans engagement in the real world. The Bandsintown Live Music Charts furthers Bandsintown’s mission to support developing artists.”
Recent data confirms that, for the first time ever, developing artists - including DIY musicians and independent artists without labels - are key drivers of music industry growth. These new charts celebrate and encourage further artist discovery by spotlighting trending artists both nationally and locally.
