Like most event organizers, booking agents, and promoters involved in the music industry, Afton Tickets had to quickly adjust our long-term strategy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We know shows will return someday, but as each month passes, it’s become evident that live streaming, virtual concerts, and video on demand is here to stay. Afton Tickets Live Stream was built to streamline operations and ensure a flawless experience for the promoter and artist with all the features you would expect from a ticketing platform.
Why Does Afton Stand Out?
Our Live Stream virtual concert platform stands out in a crowded field of streaming platforms because we took the time to do it all. There’s no shortage of streaming platforms that have emerged over the last few months, but few, if any, deliver a true end-to-end solution for major music artists, promoters, record labels, venues, and fans.
- Fully integrated ticketing and streaming.

- Option for a full AV production install.
- Dedicated account manager.
- Cloud-based: Stable bandwidth and fully scalable.

- Multiple layers of redundancies to protect you from stream disruption.
- Plus many more features you won’t find anywhere else.
Afton Offers the Highest Payout on the Market
Since 2004, it has always been Afton’s mission to payout artists, venues, and promoters as much as possible, and our LiveStream platform is no exception. The Artist/promoter keeps 100% of the ticket face value and streaming never costs them a thing! We pay for all of the stream ingest, stream delivery, bandwidth, and fan watch hour costs. We have also optimized the fan tipping offering 2-click tipping, gamification and motivating in-stream social engagement which results in increased tipping amounts and frequency. This puts more money directly into the artist’s pocket!
The Perfect Fan Experience
Because we are such avid music lovers and concert-goers, the fan experience was equally as important to us. We make the ticket purchase simple and quick and the watch page has been enhanced to cater to the fan (ad-free streaming, no forced account creation, real-time chat, card storage for in-stream tipping, attendee support, etc).
While we miss live/in-person concerts every day, there has never been a more important time to offer an artists/promoter focused platform that brings in revenue during this unprecedented time and gives fans new access to artists they love.
