CASE STUDIES
A FEW OF OUR FRIENDS’ EXPERIENCES


Red Hot Chili Peppers

Prior to the release of their tenth studio album, I'm With You, and their first tour in four years, the Red Hot Chili Peppers partnered with CrowdSurge...

...as well as 12 key EU retailers to facilitate presale ticket access for fans who pre-ordered the new album from the band's website or an associated e-tailer, including Play, Amazon, 7Digital and Free Record Shop.

The campaign resulted in more than 17,000 albums pre-ordered, 75% of pre-order customers purchasing tickets in the presale, and I'm With You ranking number one on each e-tailer's top sellers chart. 

the XX

After a two-year absence from the stage, and on the eve of their sophomore album’s release (Coexist), The xx and CrowdSurge partnered to ticket three intimate shows in the band's hometown of London.

CrowdSurge facilitated a custom ballot for 100% of the concert’s highly coveted tickets, offering an equitable means of distribution while increasing the band’s email database by 480% with 40 email addresses collected for every ticket sold.

The xx received more than 200,000 unique visits to their website within the first hour of the campaign and propelled a barrage of media coverage, including a front-page feature on the Guardian and BBC.

(RED) Rows

Looking for a way to turn the concert experience (RED) in the fight against HIV/AIDS, (RED) turned to CrowdSurge to create (RED)ROWS, a charitable auction platform for artists.

Between June 1 and June 10, 2012, 26 artists - including Coldplay, The Killers, Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Leonard Cohen and Swedish House Mafia – turned their concert seats (RED) for charity driving the price of their tickets up by 185% on average. 100% of the proceeds went towards creating an AIDS Free Generation for 2015.

Branded Artist Apps Could Be a Gold Mine for Musicians and Fans Alike.

"Because the artist would "own" the app, they could use it to sell their allotment of direct-sale tickets via something like Crowdsurge, rather than hooking into Ticketmaster or another middleman. This would let them keep more of that money, and it would be possible, because their app would become a main point of interaction with their fans, incorporating everything they're doing elsewhere."
