Cloud-Based Digital Music Subscription Service to Power Music Streaming for Leading Concert Discovery Application

NEW YORK, New York—January 16, 2014 – Bandsintown and Sony Network Entertainment International today announced a partnership that will deliver fans better music and artist discovery. Through the partnership, the Music Unlimited service will be integrated directly into the Bandsintown application, enabling users of Bandsintown, the world’s largest concert discovery application with nine million application installs, to access millions of streaming songs within posts promoted by Bandsintown artists and shared by fans, email announcements, weekly updates, friend RSVP notifications, and more via Facebook, iOS and Android devices in 19 countries.

“Music Unlimited not only provides ad-free access to the latest hits but also enhances music discovery by elevating every genre, exposing Bandsintown music fans to new artists,” said Michael Aragon, vice president and general manager of global digital video and music services for Sony Entertainment Network. “Our fast-growing global library of more than 25 million songs will complement Bandsintown’s expansive concert catalog, giving fans immediate access to local concert information and music they love.”

Bandsintown connects fans to their favorite music and delivers real-time notifications alerting them anytime their favorite artist’s tour or announce new shows nearby. Alternatively, Bandsintown users can glance at the entire list of artists playing in their area, select a track and sample new music through Music Unlimited and see a show of an artist they’ve never heard before.

“Bandsintown is all about making it easier for music lovers to not just be the first to find out when artists they love are coming near them, but to help them discover new music,” said Julien Mitelberg, CEO of Bandsintown. “Bandsintown already sends 25 percent of its fan base to concerts they had never heard about before. We want to boost that number even further by improving artist and music discovery right from the core of the application.”

Users can access Music Unlimited either by signing up for a free trial or by using preview mode as a guest user, which allows for 30 second previews of tracks in the catalogue and Channels. Users may also subscribe to either the Access or Premium plans for a low monthly fee.
