WHAT IS BIG BREAK?
Bandsintown Big Break, is the first and most ambitious fan data-driven emerging artist program, which identifies artists who have grown rapidly between 100 and 5,000 Trackers within a 6 month period. 20 rising stars will be handpicked and will be provided with maximum exposure across our network over 12 Months, giving fans everything they need to know about the fresh faces turning the industry upside down.
WHY EMERGING ARTISTS?
As the most trusted source for concert discovery (50% of users RSVP to a show they discovered through our recommendations), we're committed to helping emerging artists of all kinds grow their careers and connect with an audience, made up entirely of passionate music fans.
WHAT DOES DATA DRIVEN MEAN?
With our touring data for more than 500,000 artists and 50 MM live music fans, we have the inside scoop on who’s racking up Trackers at warp speed. We're using these insights to help fans find new acts to obsess over, and with so many emerging artists to choose from, we're letting you know who’s going to be everywhere soon.
