Music News

Supajam hit over 1,000,000 visitors!

We also looked at a lot of (hopefully) interesting stats for the site.

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that while messing about with our stats the other day, we noticed we had smashed through one million individual visitors to the site and hadn't even realised it.

FUN FACT: If all of those people were laid head to toe then they could create a path from Woking to Athens.

We saw that we were getting close a few months ago and were going to do something special for this arbitrary milestone, but got a bit distracted by other things. It came and went, but we still thought it would be nice to look back on one or two things.

Firstly, our CEOs and co-founders had these words to say:

"Who'd have thought we'd reach a million? What took them so sodding long? Thanks for popping by and here's to another slutty few years (erm, wtf boss?listening to some huge tunes along the way. I predict that in 2015 the music world will all be wearing tweed." - David Court

"The music world has changed and we're really excited to be part of that change - thanks to everyone who has made this so big." - Nick Stillwell

There they go. See what we have to put up with?

Anyway, we've done a bit of research and found some SupaNumbers...

+50,000 free tickets have been given away by us to festivals, gigs, and screenings.
