Bandsintown is making its entrance into Web3 with its Big Break NFT collection. The concert discovery platform is teaming up to make free NFTs for fans who attend its upcoming series of livestream concerts. Significantly the NFTs will help support 10 musical acts from Big Break – Bandsintown’s platform for emerging artists.
Bandsintown will offer Big Break NFTs as part of a 2022 livestream series
To sum up, the Big Break NFTs are a major part of a series of livestream concerts Bandsintown is hosting over the course of this year. Basically, each of these livestreams will feature one of 10 emerging music acts from the Big Break program.
What’s more, each Big Break act will pair up with an up-and-coming visual artist who will create an NFT. As a result, fans who tune into the Bandsintown livestreams will receive a Big Break NFT. Thus, the NFT serves as a proof of attendance collectible. It’s also a sign of fans’ early investment in those musicians.
The Big Break NFTs will come in the form of virtual tour laminates (think of a backstage or VIP concert pass). The art of the NFTs will reflect the style of the visual artist. Of course, it will also sync up with the vibe and tastes of the music act.
In addition, there are extra perks for fans who attend all the Bandsintown livestreams. Indeed, by collecting all 10 Big Break NFTs they will gain a bonus NFT of the Big Break poster art. Not to mention that they will get a physical print of the poster as well.
Bondly helping deliver proof of attendance NFTs
As noted above, the Big Break NFTs from Bandsintown come with an assist from Bondly. For those unaware, Bondly is a leading NFT solutions provider. That is to say, it’s in the business of developing new NFT technologies and increasing NFT utility. Notably, blockchain juggernaut Animoca Brands acquired a majority stake in Bondly last September.
All in all, the Big Break NFTs from Bandsintown continue a rapidly increasing trend. Namely, that of music industry players leveraging the power of NFTs.
To list just a few recent examples, there’s the major announcement from Billboard and Universal Music Group on their NFT collection, ChartStars. By the same token, Warner Music Group made headlines when it announced its partnership with The Sandbox.
To be sure, the fact that NFTs would shake up the modern music industry is something that many professionals have been predicting for some time now. Clearly, the Big Break NFTs show that Bandsintown has taken notice and won’t get left behind.
