As Hypebot reports, the recently formed Bandsintown Artist Community seems to be on the right track.
The idea behind the community is to enable global networking information sharing and other connected activities. “The new online community was designed to be a place to connect artists and other music industry professionals to share, support, learn and empower each other.”
The membership is free and open and so far it has 550,000 registered artists, their teams, and other music industry professionals.
Hypebot gives examples of how the community functions: “Concert pianist, composer, and ‘classical improviser’ George Ko and Plus Aziz, ‘a Khaleeji rocker fostering cross-cultural dialogue’ both asked for advice on music PR and the Community connected them with PR pro and Community member Ariel Hyatt. Plus Aziz is also looking for the right remix talent.”
Users are also getting insider tips on how to best use Bandsintown for Artists to reach its 65 million registered users and grow a fanbase. Access to the Community is available through Bandsintown for Artists.
