Songkick and CrowdSurge merge

Concert-tracking website Songkick has merged with CrowdSurge to create the world’s largest artist-to-fan ticketing platform. The combined entity will trade under the Songkick banner, bringing together the firms’ complementary technologies with the aim of expanding the number of touring artists directly selling concert tickets and live experiences.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed, but the firm announced additional financing, from investors Access Industries, Index Ventures and Sequoia Capital, reportedly worth $16 million, as part of the deal.
