Covid-19 hit and live music - the most powerful connection between artists and fans - remains paused. With every day that passes, the demand of the crowd beats louder and the opportunity for artists to rebuild their relationship with their biggest fans grows stronger. 


Now is the time for a movement, led by artists, that puts the biggest fans back at the beating heart of live music. 


Planet is a crowd-powered community where artists and fans come together as a collective, to make the live music experience better and fairer. Planet empowers the biggest fans to have their say in everything from tour locations to setlists and enables the best artists to satisfy that demand. Together, through limited release ‘Drops’ we get more tickets into real fans' hands.


We've built the MVP, called PreTour, with some of the best in the business, including artists who will lead the movement, with a product to better serve live music fans and generate fairer year-round revenues (we’ll tell you who during the interview 😎).


Planet’s platform is powered by our insights engine, The Beat. Fuelled by the participation of the crowd, The Beat gathers and interprets Big Fan Behaviour before, during and after the live event, tapping into the wants, needs and personal preferences of the crowd inspiring better decision making around what to Drop, when and to who, enabling artists to connect with fans more effectively and more often, in the biggest moments.


If you like the sound of things so far, this role will join us just before launch (the full circle ticketing product is ready to go) so you will be a key part of building out our understanding of big fan behaviours that are at the heart of the community.
