Followers are fans who want to receive alerts when an artist announces a show near them.
People can follow an artist in a few different ways. When someone downloads the Bandsintown app, it can scan their music library, Facebook likes, and music they stream from various apps. Bandsintown then tracks all of the artists that they listen to or like from these platforms.
Additionally, fans can go to an artist page on our website or in the app and follow any artist that they choose individually. This often happens when an artist sends out a link via social media and asks their fans to follow them.
