MAGNIFI, a global music platform connecting fans, venues and artists, today announces the latest features aimed at transforming live music services. MAGNIFI combines show listings, an immersive listening experience, artist and venue discovery, as well as ticket purchasing — all in one place.
“It’s evident that streaming music is a vehicle to get fans to live shows, where artists generate the majority of their income,” says CEO Toby Gabriner. “But for music fans, going to shows is an extremely fragmented experience. It requires four or more steps which include listening to artists, searching for shows, organizing with friends, and then finally buying tickets. That’s too many hurdles to go through before experiencing great live music. MAGNIFI makes it simple for fans to get to shows by combining everything they need on one platform.”
