Spotify adds Resident Advisor to ticketing portfolio

Spotify has signed a ticketing deal with electronic music platform Resident Advisor, which will connect users of the streaming platform to events by artists via localised event listings promoted within the application.

The agreement is in line with Spotify’s other ticketing deals with Ticketmaster, Songkick, Eventbrite, AXS and Japan’s eplus.

The deal also includes personalised email notifications based on a user’s listening history.

Resident Advisor, an online music magazine and community platform, shifts millions of tickets each year for clubs, concerts and festivals.

“The vitality of local scenes is essential for the sustainability and creativity of the global electronic music community,” said Resident Advisor co-founder Nick Sabine.

“Our collaboration with Spotify is a brilliant evolution of the work we have been doing for almost two decades to support the work of the independent artists, venues, and promoters which act as the pillars of those scenes.”

Resident Advisor also stages live events and showcases, including festival collaborations at Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Sonar in Barcelona, and the Amsterdam Dance Event.
