Ticketing and concert discovery platform Songkick will integrate with Shazam, beginning in 2017. The partnership was announced during the Billboard Touring Conference in Los Angeles. The partnership will allow Songkick’s data on upcoming concerts to be included in Shazam’s song identification app.
“In partnering with Songkick to create this new offering, we are able to further connect the dots from discovery to fandom that make up a strong artist-to-fan relationship,” said Shazam’s Chief Product Officer Fabio Santini via a statement.
“The moment of discovery is such an important time to educate the fan about a show,” said Matt Jones, CEO of Songkick, in a statement. “I’m proud to say we’ve built a technology platform that will enable every artist we work with, and every fan who uses us, a chance to seamlessly discover new artists and immediately have the opportunity to see them live. Shazam plays such a pivotal role in music discovery, and we’re excited to expand our reach to millions of more live music fans around the globe, ensuring Songkick is available wherever fans are engaging the most.”
Songkick’s platform is available in 60 markets around the world, and is visited by 12 million music fans each month. Songkick has offices in London, Los Angeles, Nashville and New York. Shazam’s mobile apps have been downloaded more than 1 billion times and users have performed more than 30 billion “Shazams” since its launch in 2002.
