Bandsintown for Artists is available today for free to the over 510,000 registered artists currently registered. The tools allow artists to upload tour dates directly and promote to Bandsintown's registered users as well as fans visiting Billboard, Google, Facebook, Instagram, Amazon Alexa and more.
They are expanding their free direct-to-fan messaging tool which allows artists to message their trackers directly through email and push notifications.
"Bandsintown is aggressively expanding its free offering to artists," said Fabrice Sergent, Managing Partner. "We continue to contribute value to artists and help them better engage with their super fans, grow their careers and stand out in an ever-crowded world."
New posting capabilities and targeting translate into more personalized messages to fans while also offering artists the ability to schedule posts on Bandsintown and sync across Facebook and Twitter simultaneously. All data collected is shared with artists, at no cost, on the Bandsintown for Artists analytics platform.
