Social concert discovery and recommendation service Jukely has raised $2.4 million in funding. Northzone and 14W led the round.
NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Jukely (www.jukely.com), a social concert discovery and recommendation service, today announced the launch of its innovative new feature, Jukely Unlimited, which offers users a monthly subscription service to attend unlimited concerts in their area for just $25 per month. Opening first in New York, users can sign up now to be one of the first people to get access to this incredible new service.
Jukely, which is funded by key investors from Spotify, Pandora, Soundcloud and more, creates unique concert opportunities for users by learning what music they love and sharing new, similar concerts in their area with them and their friends. Expanding upon its popular services, Jukely Unlimited enables subscribers to attend as many concerts per month as they would like from participating venues and promoters in Jukely’s popular network. Jukely will not impose any limits to the number of times subscribers can attend concerts, and attendance will only be limited by availability. As new shows become available in a user’s area, Jukely sends a notice of the show and subscribers are able to RSVP directly online to the ones they wish to attend.
“We created Jukely to make it easier for music fans around the world to discover and enjoy new live music, and with Jukely Unlimited we couldn’t be more excited to take this to the next level by offering unlimited concerts in your area,” said Jukely Co-Founder Bora Celik. “Jukely Unlimited couldn’t be easier to use – it even does the planning on its own and presents subscribers with the option to attend a broad range of shows!”
Jukely Unlimited is currently available with 17 venues in New York, with more venues and cities being added soon. This expansion is made possible through the closing of a new $2.4 Million funding round led by early Spotify investors, Northzone, and former Warner Music executive Alex Zubillaga’s fund, 14W. Combined with expansions on previous funding, this brings Jukely’s totally seed funding to $3.3 Million.
