“T-Mobile has been an important supporter of the new Beatport streaming service since launch and we couldn’t be happier to launch T-Mobile Backstage,” said Beatport President and CEO, Greg Consiglio. “Beatport is committed to working with brand partners like T-Mobile to bring fans the authentic music experiences they crave in new and unique ways that only the Beatport platform can deliver.”
“We believe in giving our customers more of what they want, and Music Freedom is a perfect example of that,” said Andrew Sherrard, Chief Marketing Officer of T-Mobile. “T-Mobile Backstage means our Simple Choice customers will get even more access to the music they love – and it won’t cost them a penny more.”
T-Mobile has a strong partnership with Beatport.

Likewise, T-Mobile was the exclusive launch partner for Beatport’s new streaming music service and app. T-Mobile also sponsored Beatport’s Decade 10-year anniversary campaign that awarded users 5 free downloads a week for 10 weeks, and was a leading sponsor of such SFX-owned events as TomorrowWorld, Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, Spring Awakening, the Life in Color tour, and Summer Set.
