Bhad Bhabie selected as fastest-growing artist, Atlanta said to have most engaged fans
Bandsintown have released its year-end report on which artists and cities saw the most interaction on the concert discovery app in 2018. Bandsintown based its report on the data generated from its more than 50 million users and 500,000 artists registered on the platform.
"Jumpsuit" rockers Twenty One Pilots were announced as the most RSVP'd artist of 2018 with the highest number of fans indicating that they planned to attend a concert on the band's Bandito Tour across Europe and North America. Second on the list is "High Hopes" emo rockers Panic! at the Disco, who are resuming their North American tour Jan. 10 at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. Next is Shawn Mendes, who just sold out his first-ever stadium show at Rogers Centre in Canada in minutes. The 1975 and Ariana Grande round out the top five.
Bandsintown also released its Fastest Growing New Artists list, led by Bhad Bhabie, the rap persona of Danielle Bregolli who has defied the expectations of many music industry insiders who wondered how the 15-year-old would parlay a daytime television appearance into a music career. She just wrapped up The Disrespect Tour with Lil Yachty, who features on her 2018 track “Gucci Flip Flops.”
