Popular concert app Bandsintown has released “Big Break,” a data driven program to support emerging artists. The program will give Big Break artists exposure over a 12 month period, allowing the app’s users to discover the industry’s most promising up and coming artists. Talking a little bit about the program Bandsintown managing partner Fabrice Sargent says, “We know how hard it is for developing acts to reach the next level, and we’re passionate about helping them to achieve this milestone. Our latest program uses data to identify artists who have seen extensive growth on our platform within a six month span, and helps support them at a crucial turning point in their careers. We’re extremely excited to work with each of these artists and to watch them grow. We would also like to thank the artists for inviting us along for their ride.”
Being date driven, the app identifies artists that have grown the most between 100 to 5,000 Bandsintown trackers within a six month period. The app plans to spotlight 50 bands within the coming year. The launch begins with FOXTRAX, Minke, Peach Pit, and Sisters.
