The cover feature in this week’s Music Ally Report looks at ticketing in an age of over-abundance. How can live music and ticketing companies make their events stand out? From Songkick’s recommendation algorithms to Ticketmaster mapping consumer affinity across a variety of levels to provide real-time and geo-specific recommendations, we look at how the face of ticketing is changing. Our country profile focuses on Italy, where subscription streaming is powering a digital-led recovery after years of decline. And our Beyond Music feature looks at the startling numbers in the mobile games world, where Candy Crush Saga maker King made $1.88bn last year despite 96.2% of its players not paying a cent.
