Mixcloud Launches Ticketed Live Streams


A little over five months ago, Mixcloud – the London based streaming service – introduced live streaming to help DJs and artists broadcast online without the worry of copyright takedowns.

Today the company is adding ‘Tickets’ to the platform — offering artists a new way to generate income from live streams. Tickets allow creators to promote and broadcast their own pay-per-view streams through Mixcloud LIVE.

With real-world live music looking increasingly unlikely for the rest of this year, artists and DJs are turning to digital tools to connect with their audiences in new ways. But few platforms offer them a way to make money that compensates for the shutdown of the live music industry.

“Live streaming on Mixcloud was received with amazing enthusiasm and has been a game-changer for us” commented Mixcloud CEO Nico Perez “Launching Tickets is our next step in helping artists and creators generate new income and building out a full-stack music platform, with creators at the core.”

Tickets will launch with a series of live-streamed shows with handpicked artists, which are listed below.

Tickets are available now:

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
