Concert discovery platform Bandsintown has launched its own Live Music Charts, which the company says are the first data-driven predictive charts illustrating current interest in artists’ touring activity.
The 24 Worldwide, US, and City charts are powered by Bandsintown data based on the interactions of its 50 million registered fans, who according to Bandsintown generate 500,000 clicks to ticketing sites every day.
The charts weigh a formula that blends both tracker growth and fan engagement on the platform.
Bandsintown, Bandsintown for Artists, and Hypebot (which Bandsintown acquired in March) will publish monthly Worldwide and US emerging and established artist charts as well as weekly ‘buzzing and emerging artist charts’ for 10 US cities, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, and San Francisco.
Bandsintown will roll out its global charts in the coming weeks.
“Bandsintown’s dataset is unique in the marketplace as it highlights national and local rising stars based on fans engagement in the real world.”

Bandsintown has also partnered with Billboard, to present the Billboard + Bandsintown Tour Index, four weekly charts launching later this month.
The rankings will showcase the top overall and rising artists both domestically and globally, utilizing a unique methodology incorporating tracker and fan engagement data on Bandsintown.
“In a fast-growing streaming music world, there is nothing more true than real fans’ interactions and engagement at live music events to build successful and long-term artist careers,” said Fabrice Sergent, Bandsintown Managing Partner.
