Bandsintown has launched a new live stream concert subscription service, Bandsintown PLUS, and have signed up artists including Phoebe Bridgers & Adrianne Lenker to take part.
The new series aims to give subscribers access to watch over 25 live shows a month, and some of the biggest names in alternative music have agreed to take part in the first month. Artists set to grace the virtual stage during the next month include Waxahatchee, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Phoebe Bridgers, Claud, Omar Apollo, Little Dragon, and Soccer Mommy and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold.
The service will cost avid music fans a monthly fee of just $9.99 (£7.32) a month, which provides access for all of the shows that Bandsintown has lined up. In addition to that, fans can try the service with a free seven-day trial to the service or can enter Bandinstown’s competition to win a one-year subscription worth $99 (£73) via social media.
Fabrice Sergent, the Managing Partner of Bandsintown, has said in a statement: “For the past year, we’ve been hungry for live shows and for a chance to support the artists we love.
Bandsintown PLUS is an opportunity to break the barriers of cost and location that have historically hindered live music experiences. Now, with Bandsintown PLUS, live music can be more affordable, more accessible and more approachable.”
Sergent then added: “Touring artists have been economically ravaged by Covid-19’s restrictions. Bandsintown PLUS is a chance to help innovate the industry, creating new sources of revenue for artists, while deepening connections with their fans.”
