At Songkick, we believe an amazing concert experience can be life-changing. We built Songkick so we’d have one place to track your favorite artists so you never miss them live. Now the second largest concert site, we maintain the largest and most comprehensive database of concerts worldwide. Our concert information is syndicated to most major music discovery points including foursquare, Spotify, Warner, VEVO, YouTube and Yahoo!.

We make it easy for fans to find out when your favorite artist is coming to town Our recent research found that our average user goes to 70% more gigs after starting to use Songkick. This is not because we change people’s appetite for concerts, but because we make it as easy and tailored to your personal taste as it should be. We make concert going convenient by sending users a personalized alert when a tracked artist announces a tour. Users can click through for venue information, full line-up, to compare ticket offers and purchase tickets. All of your concert information is neatly organized in one place on your concert calendar. Live music fans don’t have to subscribe to a million different newsletters, email lists, websites and sift through long, generic concert newsletters anymore!

The concert business is growing and artists can reach an audience faster than ever before, tour earlier in their career and more internationally as a result. We are thrilled to partner with FanBridge and its platform for artists.  We think artists will love the Songkick integration – by making it even simpler to promote their tour dates everywhere they promote themselves.

Using Songkick on FanBridge will automatically pull your tour dates into the FanBridge platform, enabling artists to be one click away from adding the details to Facebook.

The Songkick option can be found under the “Events” module on the damntheradio dashboard. Artists including Burton Cummings, The Saw Doctors and Distant Worlds are already plugged in to Songkick concert information on their Facebook pages. Add it to your page now!

We’re proud to have built a service that millions of live music fans are using, but we’re really only getting started – there’s so much more we could do to help.
