Startups are working to eliminate the distance between artists and fans. No where has that proven more difficult that in live concerts. MyMusicTaste approaches the issue by empowering fans to drive concert appearances.

Seoul based MyMusicTaste has raised $10 million in a Seires A round led by Softbank Ventures Korea alongside Samsung Ventures, Formation 8, Golden Gate Ventures, Timewise Investment, Partners Investment, Bokwang Ventures and DT Capital.

The startup offers an online platform that enables users to request, plan and promote concerts by their favorite artists. Users are able to request a concert, purchase tickets and connect with other fans. Launched in 2013, the platform has 500,000 users with 90% outside of Korea.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
