Spotify just got announced a new feature aimed at users who typically search for their favorite creators’ live events in the app. Formerly known as Concert Hub, the feature has been renamed Live Events Feed and has undergone a number of improvements.
First, you can find the new feed by searching for Live Events in the Spotify app. This is the service’s new place where users can find live events in their area, personalized for them. Spotify has revealed that it is supported by several ticket partners who have helped make the new feature more useful.
Ticketmaster, AXS, DICE, Eventbrite and See Tickets are just some of Spotify’s ticketing partners seeking the listings in the Live Events Feed. It’s an interesting feature if you’re interested in live events, but it’s more useful for performers because live shows were terribly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to being able to find live events from their favorite artists, Live Events Feed also includes a new messaging tool to provide fans with personalized recommendations for upcoming live events based on their listening habits. In addition, users can choose to be notified of potential live events in their area.
Finally, Spotify says it has also integrated show discovery into their app. So if an artist you’re listening to has a scheduled tour date, Spotify will show you that live event in the app while you’re listening.
