Bandsintown has released its 2019 year in review for live music fans with Lewis Capaldi and Billie Eilish taking the top spots.

Capaldi has been named Bandsintown’s fastest growing artist of 2019, after gaining the largest increase in followers throughout the year.

Eilish garnered the most interest in her live shows with the most event RSVPs on the concert discovery platform.

Country singer JD Shelburne took the top spot for most shows throughout the year, having played more than 200 gigs in 2019.

The fan favorites are based on Bandsintown’s more than 50 million users worldwide. In 2019, the platform tracked activity from 2.5 million concerts and events throughout the music industry.

Fans can also see their own year in review with Bandsintown’s 2019 High Notes, which offers a personalized recap of each individual’s year in live music.

“Like Spotify’s Wrapped and Apple Music’s Replay does for streaming, Bandsintown’s High Notes offers each fan a look at their unique live music stats for the year,” said Bandsintown Group co-founder and managing partner Fabrice Sergent in a release.

The stats include the number of artists fans tracked, how many shows they attended, their top genre and the farthest city they traveled to for a show. Fans with an existing Bandsintown account can view their 2019 High Notes by visiting the search page in the app.
