Songkick Raises $2 Million To Help People Track, Catalog Live Music
Songkick is in the process of raising $2 million, an SEC filing reveals. Songkick indexes a host of ticket vendors, venue websites as well as local newspapers to create a database of concerts happening around the world.
This provides people with a centralized way of keeping track of live performances by their favorite bands and artists. In addition, Songkick is trying to build an extensive online catalog of live concert recordings.
Which I think is awesome, because I’m a bit of a live performance buff and frequently check out sites like Wolfgang’s Vault and others to find gems.
Songkick was founded in 2007 by three friends – Ian Hogarth, Pete Smith, and Michelle You – and has raised $6.52 million to date. Its investor roster includes Y Combinator, SoftTech VC, The Accelerator Group and Index Ventures.
