How many times have you arrived to a city only to find out that one of your favorite bands is playing in an hour? Instead of scrambling or bumming out in your hotel room, download the free Bandsintown app (available on both Android and iOS).
The app has five stars on both platforms and is the number-one-rated concert discovery app. What Bandsintown does is simplify concert discovery by allowing you to track your favorite artists. You can receive alerts when they’re touring near you or whichever cities you choose. You can search by place or band.
It’s easy, as the app will scan your music library in services like iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Soundcloud and Play music (Google), and searches your artist likes on Facebook and Twitter to learn who you are as a fan and what artists to track. The algorithm will even suggest similar sounding artists, helping you discover new bands and DJs who are coming to your town.
Of course, you can also purchase tickets via the app.
