New Bandsintown Stats Chronicle 2020 Explosion In Music Livestreams
New stats shared by Bandsintown and Billboard chronicle the explosive growth of music livestreams in 2020.
Since late March, 61,000 livestreams by almost 20,000 artists were marketed to live music deprived fans including Bandsintown’s 60 million registered users through mid-December.
In news that portends a better 2021 for artists, ticket lives streams have impressive traction in just the last few months.
“In June, ticketed livestreams accounted for less than two percent of the total number of daily broadcasts,” writes Billboard’s Eric Frankenberg. “In November, following months of double-and-triple-digit percentage increases, they accounted for more than half.”
Bandsintown has also produced livestreams by more than 800 artists to an audience of 33 million since April on its free Bandsintown LIVE channel, making it the fourth most popular music livestreamer of 2020 according to Pollstar data.
