Bandsintown Comes to Squarespace
Let’s face facts, it’s not 2008 anymore, and your band can’t survive with just a MySpace page. Sure, you’ve got a Facebook page and a Twitter account, but those are only good for sharing updates. You need a web destination where your fans can find you and get access to new music, show dates, tour diaries, photos and video, and your merch, right? Of course—this is why your band needs a website.
Which is why we’re happy to share that we’ve partnered with the folks at Squarespace, one of the most visually stunning website publishing platform for musicians, to seamlessly sync our two services. We can attest to the platform's ease of use, rich imagery and responsive design – we’re currently powering our artist website on Squarespace! Now you too can benefit by adding a Bandsintown Block available from the Block Menu, to pull your Bandsintown tour data and display it on any page, blog post, event or product page of your Squarespace site. This means any changes or updates you make to your tour schedule will instantly appear on Squarespace – one update will be pushed everywhere. After dropping the block on a page, there are only two settings required to pull in data from any touring band: the band’s name and date range to show. No username or password required, it’s that simple.
Additionally, our recently released Bandsintown Manager mobile app – available for free for artists through our partnership with Squarespace – saves artists valuable time by sharing tour dates across multiple sites and social networks. So you can get back to what you REALLY love, making great music that your fans want to hear.
