2020 has been a disastrous year for music festivals and live concerts. Record labels and platforms have had to reinvent themselves. That is why Bandsintown Plus was born, the Netflix of live online concerts.
The pandemic is changing many more things than we imagined, and some of them will last forever. Or at least, they will remain when the nightmare is over. For example, subscriptions to live online concerts.

Bandsintown Plus is an American music platform which has launched a kind of Netflix live online concerts. For $ 10 a month you have access to 25 exclusive live online concerts. Practically one a day.
These exclusive concerts will take place in different stages, concert halls or in the studio. Even in the artists’ own home.
Subscribers will access them with high definition audio and video quality and, most interestingly: they will be able to ask questions of the musicians at the end of the concert from their own home, and even chat with them.
