About the company
Songkick is the great live music startup. We help fans track their favorite artists so they never miss them live. We help artists sell more tickets: on their own site, on Songkick and across a wide range of partners, including Spotify, YouTube and BBC Music. More than 10 million fans use us each month across web and mobile, 90% of them from outside the UK.

We are the biggest independent concert site in the world. We have sold millions of tickets direct to fans and sell more than 10,000 events each year. Artists who use our ticketing service include Paul McCartney, Tiësto, Jack White, Macklemore, Enrique Iglesias, and The xx. Our revenue is growing fast and we’re expanding our tech team to help us accelerate this growth.

Our team combines deep consumer product and technical expertise with a complete view of what matters to modern artists. We are veterans of Apple, Skype, Google, and Amazon working alongside a former member of Beyonce’s management team, a producer for the Wu-Tang Clan, various working musicians, and the person who literally wrote the book on the ticketing industry.

Our recently announced merger with CrowdSurge creates a supercharged joint company working to bring together more than 500 of the world’s biggest artists with 10 million fans. We also announced a $16.6M Series C investment led by three of the most highly regarded venture capital firms in the world: Access Industries, Index Ventures and Sequoia. Songkick was one of the 2007 batch of Y Combinator companies.
