Indie music web stalwarts combine

Camden based Tourdates has acquired SoundGenerator.com in an all cash transaction that effectively combines the UK’s two leading independent music communities.
Tourdates Limited runs independent music community www.tourdates.co.uk, offering a platform for unsigned musicians to promote themselves and offering London gigs listings in LondonTourdates magazine.
Launched in 2001, SoundGenerator.com has become a leading music news website with an archive of 10,000 band and artist profiles, extensive picture library and a network of correspondents.
Mark Beilby, Tourdates chairman said: “SoundGenerator’s founders saw early the pivotal role that the web would play in the development of the music industry and appreciated the growing importance of a truly independent social community, not merely peddling a broader corporate agenda. We are delighted to be able to pick up the baton and continue their work.”
