Working with over 500 artists and ticketing thousands of events worldwide each year, we’re working to make every show a sellout.

Songkick delivers personalized alerts for upcoming concerts to its 10 million monthly unique fans, making it easy for these fans to track their favorite artists so they never miss them live.

Our company has also powered worldwide programs for some of the world’s biggest artists, including Adele, Metallica, Paul McCartney, Mumford & Sons, Kenny Chesney, and Ellie Goulding, creating the ultimate artist experience by linking fans through innovative ticketing technology and marketing solutions.

With offices strategically positioned in London, Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York, Songkick combines technology and expertise to make the concert experience better for artists and fans alike.
