The concert notification service can now push out a “watch live” notification when musicians are live-streaming shows.

These notifications will appear on Bandsintown, along with Facebook pages, Instagram Stories, and other places that surface Bandsintown listings.

Additionally, Bandsintown has launched its own Twitch channel, with all proceeds going to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

As true music fans, there are ways you can help us help artists…If you’re able to, avoid asking for refunds, buy their merch, attend their live shows when they return, donate to tips jars, or donate to MusiCares.

MusiCares is an arm of the Recording Academy that provides financial relief to those in the music industry facing unexpected hardships.
