DigiTour Media is an emerging media and entertainment company, which creates and produces IRL (“in real life”) social media experiences in the form of concerts (DigiTours) and festivals (DigiFests). On May 15th, 2014 DigiTour announced strategic investments from Ryan Seacrest and Advance Publications (parent company of Conde Nast).
DigiTour events feature the most well known social media personalities and traditional recording artists in the genres of pop, alternative rock, hip-hop and comedy. In 2014, over 120,000 fans will attend DigiTour events in Boston, Chicago, Denver, New York, Los Angeles, among scores of other U.S. cities, as well as London and Toronto.
DigiTour Media LLC was founded in 2010 and has launched five successful tours and multiple sold out festivals receiving critical acclaim in the media (New York Times, Variety, Forbes, AdWeek, HypeBot, LA Business Journal, Billboard.biz, Fuse, E! Online, NPR, Perez Hilton.com, Village Voice, KTLA, US Weekly, and On Air with Ryan Secrest).
DigiTour made an indelible mark in the entertainment industry by changing the traditional concert platform and helped launch solid brands that have the ability to bridge the gap between web and the mainstream. In 2014 almost all nominees in the WebStar and Internet categories were DigiTour Alums - as were the winners for Choice Viner, Choice Webstar, and Choice Collaboration. The New York Times stated on their June 8th page A-1 story:
"A capacity 12,500 tickets were sold. More than 70 performers appeared on three stages. There were 150 security guards, a necessity whenever swarms of shrieking teenage girls assemble. Coke sponsored a live web stream of the festivities.
The latest incarnation of Lollapalooza or Lilith Fair?
Not even close. This was DigiFest NYC.."
