What can FANS do for artists?

FANS is a fan-to-fan platform, a place for music lovers to celebrate what it means to be a fan, explore and claim their concert history, discover new experiences and connect with others. FANS allows artists to join the conversation through verified accounts, but also express their own fandom while engaging with their biggest supporters.


Celebrate Your Fandom

FANS offers artists the opportunity to forge a unique and intimate connection to their base, building a direct line of access to artist’s fans and allowing them to engage on a more personal level about specific shows, memories and fan experiences. Further, artists have the opportunity to be fans themselves on the platform, posting personal experiences such as their first show, favorite artists, and more.

Enhancing the Artist Experience

  • Verification:  We saved the “official” names of bands and band members just for you. Once your account is verified, you’ll receive a verified check mark so everyone in the community will know it’s really you who is posting and responding.

  • Update your data:  As an official artist, you will have a direct line to accurately and update the aggregated data collected by FANS. This includes your concert history, upcoming shows, bios, photos and discographies.

  • Run promotions with us: Many artists are using FANS to run promotions - both large and small - to strike meaningful relationships with music lovers. From user-generated content contests to surprise and delight tactics, we’re happy to connect you to your most passionate fans.

  • Direct Messaging: FANS allows artists to connect with their most passionate fans, engaging with users who actively post photos, videos, and other content on their pages. Artists can directly interact with their base, rewarding their most involved users with likes, comments and shares and posting special updates.

  • Embed a Fan-Powered Timeline: By integrating a FANS artist timeline, artists can access a comprehensive catalog of all their past shows, populated with user-generated photos, videos, memories and more.
