TuneCore announces partnerships with three live music platforms

By | Published on Wednesday 3 August 2016


The UK division of TuneCore has announced partnerships with three live music platforms which, it says, will provide self-releasing artists who utilise the digital distributor to get their music into download and streaming services with “a wide range of services to support their live music careers”.

Meanwhile the three new partners – listings and tickets aggregator Ents24, emerging talent promoter HotVox and live music marketplace – will all encourage new artists they work with to get their music into the key digital platforms, pointing to TuneCore as a simple way to achieve that. After all, for new artists gigging is the best way to reach and engage new fans, but to take newly engaged fans with you, you need your music to be available on all the key streaming and download services.

Confirming the new alliances, TuneCore’s UK Brand Manager Sam Taylor said: “The UK has a rich history of live music and an increasingly buoyant live music sector. While distribution and digital artist services remain the core focus of TuneCore, we recognise that for many musicians playing live is an integral part of their careers. TuneCore UK is committed to empowering artists to grow their fanbase and increase revenue opportunities”.
