Bandsintown Big Break, A Data-Driven Emerging Artist Program

Big Break Social.png

Today we are proud to announce “Big Break”, the first data-driven program designed to spotlight and support emerging artists in live music.

Live performance now often precedes an artist’s recording career and is a key indicator of growth, and with our data, we can see who’s racking up Trackers at warp speed. Because an artist’s growth on Bandsintown is organic, we know that their Trackers are authentic trendsetters.  

“Big Break” is driven by Bandsintown’s data which identifies artists who have grown the most between 100 to 5,000 Trackers within a 6 month period. Bandsintown will spotlight 50 “Big Break” artists who will receive massive exposure across our network, allowing fans to be the first to discover music’s most promising up-and-comers.  

“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.”
- Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown Managing Partner
