LOS ANGELES, CA — TikTok today announces a new partnership with AXS, a leader in global ticketing, to offer fans a new way to discover and buy tickets to live events for their favorite artists.

The partnership promises to bring music fans closer to their favorite artists, with the feature live in the US, UK, Sweden, and Australia. Now, any Certified Artist on TikTok can use the in-app ticketing feature to promote their AXS live dates and connect with fans around the globe.

We are very excited to start this journey with AXS and look forward to supporting the further growth of ticketing on TikTok in the future.”

This is the perfect example of discovery-driven content and commerce for music fans!”
