Home - About us
Fan Pass is more than just an app, it's a platform and true artist partner that allows artists and their fans (both old and new) to interact in authentic ways, right from their smartphone or other connected devices.
Fan Pass creates experiences
Fan Pass allows an artist’s fanbase to experience something they may otherwise never have the opportunity to afford or geographically attend.
Not only that, but its features are tailored to both the artist and the fan, depending on their individual needs and wants. Fans can follow the specific artists and genres they love, while artists can provide the behind-the-scenes access to their most loyal supporters.
Fan Pass seeks to become a premier brand and mobile platform that is dedicated to connecting and engaging users from anywhere around the world.
