Bandsintown, the popular concert discovery platform, has launched Big Break—a new program that's uniquely data-driven in its quest to identify emerging artists as a result of touring.

More specifically, by looking at the 440k artists and 38m fans it monitors, Bandsintown can tell which acts are racking up "Trackers" and at what pace. Upon uncovering the top results, the company will promote these Big Break artists over a 12-month stretch with customized editorial,
in-app features, brand partnerships, touring and special showcase opportunities, and social media promotion.

"We know how hard it is for developing acts to reach the next level, and we're passionate about helping them to achieve this milestone," said Bandsintown Managing Partner Fabrice Sergent. "Our latest program uses data to identify artists who have seen extensive growth on our platform within a six month span, and helps support them at a crucial turning point in their careers. We're extremely excited to work with each of these artists and to watch them grow. We would also like to thank the artists for inviting us along for their ride."

Bandsintown expects to spotlight 50 new artists in the coming year; FOXTRAX, Minke, Peach Pit (pictured) and SISTERS lead the charge.
