Bandsintown App Gets Major Update, Connects Artists & Fans With New Features

Today’s release, Bandsintown Concerts 6.1 has our team buzzing for a few reasons. It is our most significant update to the fan experience in the past year, but we are especially excited to share what is a direct result of specific input and feedback received from passionate artists, managers, and fans like you.

Bandsintown users cite discovery as central to their Bandsintown experience (50% of Bandsintown fans attend concerts of artists they had never heard before) can now filter their search to find the upcoming concerts and tours that match their interests and prefered location, dates, and genre. The redesign includes search tiles with curated gig lists and more room for artists to share concert announcements, photos, and status updates.

Artists can continue to communicate directly with their fans via the Post to Trackers features, but reach an even greater audience with the addition of a Posts tab on every Artist Page. Current and future fans can learn more about artists while browsing, seeing their friends’ activity, or from Bandsintown recommendations.

Fans, musicians, and managers alike: don’t head into peak festival season without taking advantage of these updates. To learn more, view the press release here. Bandsintown Concerts 6.1 is available on the App Store on iTunes and Google Play.
