New Manager Additions: Update Artist Photo, Sync to Tumblr and Show Line-Up

We recently released a new version of Bandsintown Manager on iOS and Android that allows managers and artists to perform a simple function that has been hugely requested for some time. Now, any artist using our Manager app on mobile will have the ability to update their artist or band photo directly - independent of Facebook!

Here's how:

  1. Download Bandsintown Manager on iOS or Android
  2. Connect your Facebook account and navigate to the selected artist or band page
  3. Click on the 'More' settings tab on the far right
  4. Select Artist Cover Image and choose a photo you'd like to use. It's that easy!

We also introduced a new feature that allows you to sync your Auto Promote posts to Tumblr. Now you can push Bandsintown tour dates to one of the world's largest blogging platforms!

Here's how:

On Facebook:

1. Click the Settings link in the top right - Click Connect next to Tumblr

3. Provide your Tumblr login info to connect Bandsintown

4. Click the Auto Promote tab to toggle Tumblr syncing for each type of post

On iOS:

1. Tap the Settings tab in the bottom right - Toggle the Tumblr switch 

3. Provide your Tumblr login info to connect to Bandsintown

4. Tap Auto Promote to toggle Tumblr syncing for each type of post

On Android:

1. Tap the More tab in the bottom right - Check the box next to Tumblr

3. Provide your Tumblr login info to connect to Bandsintown

4. Tap Auto Promote to toggle Tumblr syncing for each type of post

And finally, Bandsintown will automatically aggregate artists playing the same show on a lineup as listed on the web. Anyone can edit or change a show lineup by visiting their settings under Event Details in the Facebook or Manager mobile apps, which will be reflected on the artist's tour dates tab, in our mobile apps, on the Bandsintown website and in the tour dates widgets. This makes it easier for fans to discover who is playing and encourages concert-goers to purchase tickets.

Rock on!
