Resident Advisor joins existing Spotify tour date and ticketing partnerships with Ticketmaster, Songkick, Eventbrite, AXS and in Japan eplus.
Resident Advisor lists “thousands of local venues and parties” on its dance-centric platform. By comparison, there were 2.5 million and 829,030 events listed in 2019 via Bandsintown and Songkick respectively.

“The vitality of local scenes is essential for the sustainability and creativity of the global electronic music community,” says Nick Sabine, cofounder of Resident Advisor. “Our collaboration with Spotify is a brilliant evolution of the work we have been doing for almost two decades to support the work of the independent artists, venues and promoters which act as the pillars of those scenes.”
