Songkick Partners With Facebook, Active Users Rise 43%
Songkick, the concert discovery app acquired by Warner Music Group last year, has inked a partnership with Facebook to add concerts and events from its database onto the social giant. Songkick also announced a deal with French and Belgian retailer and ticket seller FNAC.
These new partnerships follow deals with Pandora and Vevo.
In the last year, Songkick's user base grew 34% percent and monthly active users were up 43%, according to the company.
"We have tapped into Warner’s global infrastructure and existing fan base to accelerate growth and solidify Songkick’s status as the best concert discovery tool in the market," said Tony Harlow, president of WMG's label services division WEA. "We know that Songkick users are highly engaged passionate music fans and we strive to provide them more content, access, and rewards for their enthusiasm.”
"Since we joined forces with Tony and his amazing team at WEA, we've been in growth mode, striking a series of deals with distribution and ticketing partners aimed at expanding our global presence," Songkick CTO Mark McIntyre said in a statement. "Our team is growing, and our plans for the years ahead are more ambitious than ever. We're off to a great start and are looking forward to building on this exciting partnership."
