In 2017, it was revealed over half of young people aged between 18 to 24 attended a gig alone. 38% of those said it was due to their friends not being free, with 37% stating it was due to their friends differing music tastes. Ruaridh Currie and his team are revolutionising the live music scene and addressing this burning problem in the industry with their latest platform, Rockifi.
Rockifi is a new social networking and ticket comparison site for fans of rock, metal and alternative music, offering unique features that have never before been on the market for music fans.
You simply create your profile, like you would on Facebook, and the hybrid ticket comparison and social network site does the rest with its unique algorithm, matching you with other profiles with similar taste in music. Don’t want to attend a gig or festival by yourself? Rockifi will find you that gig buddy in your area and the best part is,it’s100% free.
Co-founder Ruaridh Currie states: “We’re huge rock and metal fans and felt our community was lacking a focused online product that catered to what we consider the best genre of music there is.”
Rockifi is partnered with some of the biggest names in tickets and events, selling rock concert and festival tickets first, at the best price. Once signed up to Rockifi, you can not only match with other people that like similar music, but you can track your favourite artists, be updated when their new tour dates or simply hanging out with other music fans.
