  • Why now?
    The digital marketing landscape is rapidly evolving, with recent changes in privacy regulations and the decline of cookies reshaping the industry. As the global leader in email marketing for live events, with a registered user base of over 80 million qualified live music fans, we recognized the significance of first-party data for successful event marketing. Bandsintown Pro has been specifically developed to address the unique needs of music venues and provide a tailored, automated solution to leverage first-party fan data for effective event promotion.
  • How does this compare to Bandsintown Promoter?
    Think of Bandsintown Pro as the evolution of Bandsintown Promoter, drawing from a decade of experience and client feedback. Bandsintown Pro not only elevates your venue's event marketing but also automates it.

Both platforms let you send Promoted Email campaigns, but Bandsintown Pro goes above and beyond by intelligently engaging and retargeting the most relevant artist fans during every phase of your event lifecycle. The result? Streamlined event marketing, no manual effort required. Plus, faster sell-outs for your shows without any extra work on your end.

Bandsintown Pro also features an all-new venue dashboard with a range of powerful features like Advanced Event Management, Insights, Conversion Tracking, Pixel Integrations, Profile Enhancements, Team Management, and more.

Currently, Bandsintown Pro is available exclusively as a paid subscription on a per-venue basis. However, we have exciting plans ahead to expand its availability to include Promoters and Festivals. Stay tuned!
  • Is it available in my country?
    The free tier of Bandsintown Pro is available worldwide. The paid subscription of Bandsintown Pro is available only in the United States at this time.
  • Do I really need another event marketing platform?
    When it comes to event marketing, no other platform offers a vast global event distribution network, a built-in audience of over 80 million qualified live music fans, and the intelligence to automatically engage them throughout every stage of your event lifecycle. If you’re looking to sell out your shows faster and save time with automated marketing, Bandsintown Pro may be the most important marketing platform for you.
  • Why is the minimum subscription 3 months?
    Based on our testing and experience, we determined a minimum period of 3 months is optimal to fully leverage the event marketing and sales cycle and make the most of all the features and benefits that Bandsintown Pro has to offer.
  • How easy is it to cancel my subscription?
    You can easily cancel your subscription anytime on the Billing page. Rest assured, your subscription won't extend beyond your initial commitment period.
  • Can I try it for free?
    If you’re not quite ready to go Pro, you can still create a free account to claim your venue and manage your events. Additionally, you can launch Promoted Email campaigns on a pay-as-you-go basis directly from your account dashboard. 

When you're ready to unlock the full power of Bandsintown Pro, you can dip your toes in the water with a 3-month subscription.
  • Is this available to promoters who rent venues but are not exclusive with them?
    If you’re a promoter who works with a venue for specific events but does not have an exclusive arrangement, we encourage you to collaborate with the venue to explore the possibility of them subscribing to Bandsintown Pro. This way, all promoters associated with the venue can enjoy the advantages of the platform while potentially sharing the cost with the venue. This collaborative approach can be mutually beneficial and provide a cost-effective solution for all parties involved. If you have any further questions or need assistance in implementing this approach, please let us know. We are here to support you.
  • Can I get a discount for multiple venues?
    Yes, we offer discounts for clients who have multiple venues or a combination of venue, festival, and show promotion needs. Please fill out this brief Contact Sales form and a member of our sales team will reach out to you to discuss custom and enterprise options and pricing.
  • Why is the price based on my capacity?
    Our sliding scale pricing model ensures that venues of all sizes receive the optimal marketing value for their investment. Larger venues, with wider fan bases and more seats to fill, require a broader reach for event promotion, resulting in more email and push alerts. As a result, Bandsintown Pro is priced higher for larger venues, but they receive increased reach and value in return.

Please note that pricing is based on the total combined capacity of all rooms/stages.
  • Can I schedule a demo?
    Please fill out the Contact Sales form and a member of our sales team will gladly reach out to you.
  • Will it play well with my other tools?
    Bandsintown Pro is an essential addition to any marketing stack and integrates easily with all of the major players including Meta, TikTok and X pixel integrations, Google Analytics integrations.
  • How quickly can I start using it?
    After subscribing, your venue will be upgraded to Pro immediately, and you can start making use of the Pro features right away.
  • How will I know if it’s working or not?
    You can easily track performance through the Insights dashboard and a weekly report delivered to your inbox. Measure ROI and monitor sales attribution by securely uploading a purchaser list from your Events dashboard. We instantly create a detailed Conversion Tracking Report that you can reference and download.
