After we shared news that the leading music streaming service acquired Heardle, now Spotify is venturing into the live events market. The music streaming company has launched a website that allows users to buy tickets directly from Spotify, rather through an intermediary like Ticketmaster. The site debuted on August 10 with a group of seven artists and will expand in the coming months. Fans of Limbeck, Annie DiRusso, Crows, Dirty Honey, Tokimonsta, Four Years Strong, and Osees can buy tickets for shows scheduled for later this year. Users also have the option to view past and upcoming events, and to see what tickets they’ve already purchased through the service.
Spotify tickets is making ticketing less of a hassle.
Pitchfork media recently reported that Spotify is testing a new ticketing site, tickets.spotify.com. While a Spotify spokesperson declined to comment on the specific plans for the site, they did confirm that it is part of an ongoing effort to improve the user experience. This move comes as part of a trend towards all-in-one platforms that offer users a seamless experience across multiple platforms. For example, Google has been investing heavily in its own all-in-one platform, which includes everything from search and email to maps and chat. It remains to be seen whether Spotify will be able to gain traction in the crowded ticketing market, but its reach and prominence could give it an advantage. In addition, the company’s history of exclusivity deals with artists could make it an attractive option for those looking to sell Spotify tickets directly to fans.
Consolidate your music streaming and ticket purchasing experience for a better overall experience.
Spotify’s new ticketing site is designed to help music fans seamlessly purchase tickets for live events, all within the Spotify app. This is intended to reduce the competition artists face in order to stand out, and create a more efficient experience for music lovers. By consolidating the music streaming and ticket purchasing experience, Spotify hopes to provide a better overall experience for its users. Ultimately, this should result in more sales for artists and more enjoyment for fans. This was you can discover new artists directly from Spotify playlists and see if there are concerts listed.
Spotify’s new Live Events Feed will list concert listings from partners including Ticketmaster, AXS, Dice, Eventbrite, See Tickets and more.
Spotify for artists has announced a new Live Events Feed feature that will list concert listings from partners Ticketmaster, AXS, Dice, Eventbrite, See Tickets, and more. Spotify’s goal is to make fans aware of all upcoming events by the creators they love or may come to love. Spotify believes that by doing this, they can help get more fans to more shows and assist artists and venues in having better-filled rooms. The new Live Events Feed feature is similar to the Dirty Disco website Festivals and Events feed, which provides its readers with frequent news of electronic music events happening around the world. Spotify’s Live Events Feed will be available soon to all Spotify users. This news was first announced on the Spotify blog. Spotify has not yet announced when the Live Events Feed will be available globally. Stay tuned for more updates.
