Although Songkick is built around fans, we reach those fans through an increasing number of partners. This can be via our partnerships with Bandcamp, Foursquare, SoundCloud, Spotify, YouTube, and others.

This can also be via partnerships with the label, artist management, and agency communities from Tokyo to Nashville.
