Jukely, a monthly concert subscription service, says it’s breaking records (and not the vinyl kind.) Though it didn’t want to say how many members are currently on the platform, founder Bora Celik did say it would soon be able to get a crowd to fill New York’s Madison Square Garden (capacity for the concert venue is 18,200, for reference).
That growth also means adding in new platforms like Android. Fans are finally able to book concerts on Jukely for Android starting today.
The service is already on the web and iOS, but Android was something those on Jukely had asked for some time.
Jukely launched out of the Techstars NYC 2013 accelerator program as a sort of matchmaker for music lovers. Those into new and unique bands could go on the site and find those with similar tastes to go to concerts with.
The Unlimited subscription service was introduced not long after. This plan lets music lovers choose an unlimited amount of concerts from local and indie bands in their city for $25 a month (or what you’d normally spend on one small, unknown band and a beer).
Unlimited proved to be popular among users. “People tell me they would not have gone to these concerts before,” Celik told me over the phone from his New York office.
Jukely also offers “Members only” shows with some of the bigger artists and to date the startup says it has partnered with more than 900 venues to bring experiences to its subscribers.Android will likely add to the member growth and usage. Members will now be able to claim a spot at the concert they want to go to through the website, iOS and now the Android app. Celik estimated over half of Jukely users were on the Android platform.
Jukely is available in 15 cities across the U.S. as well as in London and Toronto.Featured Image: Yulia Grigoryeva/Shutterstock
