Bandsintown’s “Big Break” is a fan data-driven emerging artist program that identifies artists who have demonstrated a notable increase of trackers on the platform within a six-month period. Thanks to their reach of 130 Million music fans, 50 million registered concert goers, and 500,000 touring artists, Bandsintown is able to tap into live music insights and see who concert-goers are obsessing over before everyone else. Artists who qualify for Big Break receive promotion across Bandsintown’s robust digital network, customized editorial, in-app features, brand partnerships, touring, special showcase opportunities, and social media promotion.
“We’re thrilled to be returning to SXSW to help shine a light on this eclectic group of artists who are rapidly growing their audiences on Bandsintown,” said Fabrice Sergent, Managing Partner of Bandsintown. “Big Break is the first fan data-driven emerging artist program and is especially unique in its ability to detect promising emerging artists at a very early stage while simultaneously helping fans discover music’s most promising up-and-comers. We look forward to celebrating their bright futures in Austin.”
