Now that the concert industry has come to a screeching halt, the live music industry is turning its attention to livestreaming. A little startup formed in 2009 called Stageit is seeing an unprecedented surge in performances and revenue. They grossed $500,000 in 2019 and in just three weeks have seen $850,000 roll in. Listen to Music Tectonics host Dmitri Vietze talk to Stageit founder/CEO Evan Lowenstein about how artists are using Stageit to sell tickets, get tips, and engage their fans. Evan goes on to talk about a cultural shift that he thinks will last far beyond the current health crisis. The stigma of asking for money has been replaced by seeing that fans yearn for a connection with artists and are used to paying for things online now. And artists are no longer expecting to replicate an in-person performance online, but instead are creating a new type of intimate online performance experience. Find out why Evan thinks now is the greatest time to try live streaming for the first time.
