WMG BUYS CONCERT INFO PLATFORM

Warner Music Group has acquired a collection of Songkick’s assets, among them the concert discovery app, website and trademark, to expand the company’s network of direct-­to-­fan destinations.

The Songkick concert discovery app will now operate as a standalone brand, overseen by WEA, WMG's artist and label services division.

“Fans all over the world trust Songkick to help them find events featuring the artists they love,” said WEA President Tony Harlow. “It’s a passionate, highly engaged music community, always on the lookout for new experiences. Bringing together Songkick's discovery platform and world-­class technology with our existing e­commerce expertise and global reach represents a powerful step in strengthening and evolving our direct-­to-­fan capabilities."

WMG is not acquiring the live music platform’s ticketing business, which is involved in a long-gestating lawsuit with Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
