Bandsintown is a concert ticket aggregator platform, which allows music fans to track musicians and bands to stay updated about their upcoming concerts by getting email or application notifications about the ticket sale dates.
They launched in 2007, were acquired by Cellfish Media in 2011 and Cellfish Media rebranded as Bandsintown Group in 2015.

Within Europe, London has the highest concentration of Bandsintown users:
