April 5, 2012 – With major summer tours just around the corner, get Bandsintown, the No. 1 free concert tracking app, on your iPhone today. Music fans have voted with their phones, making Bandsintown the highest ranked free concert tracking application in the iTunes App Store and a Top 20 hit in the overall music category, according to TopAppCharts.com, while picking up a 4.5-star user rating along the way.
“With tickets for huge festivals like the Warped Tour, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza on sale now, music fans need a quick and easy way to find out where and when their favorite artists will be playing this summer,” said Julien Mitelberg, CEO of Bandsintown. “We’ve been focused on making the best tools for both bands and music fans on Facebook and iOS and we’re pleased at the response to date.”
Bandsintown lets users track their favorite artists by importing data from their iTunes music libraries, Facebook Likes, Last.fm, Pandora, and more. The app then alerts users when their favorite artists will perform in their area and recommends concerts from similar artists they might enjoy. This data is represented graphically through Bandsintown’s unique Concert Cloud, which highlights concerts of special interest by presenting them in a larger, bolder font. The iOS app expands this feature by allowing fans to search nearby concerts by date on the Tonight tab, giving them the opportunity see which bands are playing nearby that very night. Once users find a show they want to attend, they can RSVP, buy tickets, and share info with their friends through the app on Facebook and Twitter.
Bandsintown is the leading Facebook application for live music fans and artists. For fans, Bandsintown provides a personalized way for music fans to track their favorite artists so they never miss a live concert and to discover new touring artists, based on their musical preferences and location. For artists, Bandsintown provides a best-in-class platform that allows artists to promote their live concerts and to sell tickets, leveraging Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and more. Acquired by Cellfish in September 2011, Bandsintown is based in San Diego.
