New app Showx is putting artists in control of their own ticketing. Launching today, the Showx platform allows independent artists the ability to sell tickets directly to fans and grants artists access to fan’s email data.
"Musicians controlling ticketing and owning the data of their fans is about more than a business opportunity. It’s the right thing to do," said Showx founder Lincoln Foley Schofield in a release. "Sustainable careers are built on the relationship artists have with their fans, and our goal is to use technology to remove all barriers to this relationship."
Showx believes that artists give up the control of their fan data when they pursue ticketing through a venue or promoter. Through the new ticketing platform, artists will have greater access to their fans to develop new markets and keep fans engaged.
