Stagelink launches in the UK
Event crowdsourcing platform Stagelink teams up with indie label from London and sends first UK artist on tour
Stagelink was handpicked by London based independent record label Marathon Artists to join their new “Marathon Labs” acceleration program this year. The goal of the program is to connect innovative technology companies with the music industry to build new tools for the global digital music ecosystem. “Teams are metres from where decisions are made by independent labels, publishing and management companies, recording studios and most importantly the artists.” says Jimmy Mikaoui, managing director of Marathon Artists and founder of Marathon Labs. Paul-Rene Albertini, former CEO of Warner Music and chairman of Marathon Labs adds: “Stagelink has real potential to revolutionize the music industry by bringing digital content to live. We look forward to supporting their international expansion.”
Through the program Stagelink has been introduced to UK based artists, managers and labels. Decca UK signed band MiC LOWRY - winner of the MOBO Unsung Competition and recent performer at Glastonbury festival - just launched a campaign on Stagelink to assess their real-time live demand by gathering votes from their fans on stagelink.com/mic-lowry. These votes will be essential for their tour planning and promotion. “People all over the world are asking us to come to their city. So hopefully this year we’ll have the chance to do that.”, MiC LOWRY announced in a video message on YouTube and Facebook this week.
Stagelink crowdsources live events, leveraging millions of online followers to create successful offline shows and tours. On stagelink.com, artists and managers track fan-driven, real-time demand to plan, pre-finance, and de-risk tours, while reaching highly engaged audiences.
