Ravers, groupies and music lovers of all kinds will go crazy over the number one concert app, Bandsintown Concerts. The app, its most updated version released Jan. 11, offers the latest concert dates and notifications for chosen artists and bands.
After signing up for an account, the app asks users to choose their favorite artists out of a large selection of musicians, bands and DJs. This allows the app to have a better idea about what the user’s music interest and favorite genres are, helping the app create a personalized dashboard filled with the user’s favorite artists as well as suggested artists.
The user-friendly app allows easy and convenient discovery of all upcoming concerts that are close by, after desired distance is selected. A dashboard crafted individually for each user creates a more efficient experience. With one scroll, users can make sure they don’t miss out on anything their favorite artist has to offer.
Along with their favorite artists, Bandsintown Concerts uses an algorithm to suggest similar artists, helping users discover new music. To help users make sure they don’t miss out on any of their favorite artists, the app syncs to other apps such as iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud and other music apps to calculate most listened to artists. Searching through apps such as Facebook and Twitter, the app also records different artist’s posts that have been liked.
Bandsintown sends alerts when previously selected artists have upcoming events and even allows users to RSVP to chosen concerts. After you have RSVP’d to a concert, that information is shared with friends through social media. The app also syncs with the mobile device’s calendar and will note dates of concerts each user wishes to attend.
Altogether, Bandsintown is handy for all music lovers to discover new artists and share favorite artists with followers. The convenient app does its job in making sure its users always know exactly when their favorite artists and bands are in town.
