Spotify has expanded its ticketing capabilities after signing deals with AXS and Eventbrite.
Starting today, users of the streaming service will see direct ticket feeds from both services embedded within Spotify, giving fans faster access to purchase tickets for shows.
AXS is owned by AEG while Eventbrite is privately owned. Both operate worldwide.
The announcement expands Spotify’s ticketing offer to hundreds of venues around the globe, including such stages and events as Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the US, The O2 Arena in London and the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm from AXS.
Eventbrite venues and events include the Great American Music Hall, Mohawk in Austin and the Newport Jazz Festival.
The partnerships with AXS and Eventbrite follow recent ticketing integrations with Ticketmaster and Songkick.
To date, Spotify has featured over 150,000 artists with concert dates in more than 100,000 venues.
