HOW TO UPGRADE?

Bandsintown API and Events Widget

The latest version of our Bandsintown API and Events Widget offer higher performance, scalability, clean design and continued support. Bandsintown no longer supports older versions. Make sure your website is up-to-date. Learn more below.

 

Events Widget upgrade

How do I know which version I'm using?

Is your website is hosted by Wix or Squarespace? You are already set, no upgrade required.

Is your website is on WordPress? Verify in your WordPress administration console that you are already using the latest Tour Dates plugin.

For other cases, lookup the word "bandsintown" in the page source of your website:

  • if you see bit_widget.js you have to upgrade
  • if you see main.min.js you're all set and don't need to do anything

Alternately, you can go to your website, hover on the Tickets or RSVP buttons for any of your events, and check the target link:

  • if the link of your RSVP button includes the code 39 you have to upgrade
  • if the link of your Tickets button includes the code 166 you have to upgrade

How do I upgrade to the latest version?

To install our latest Events Widget and ensure your website continues to display your events, simply identify the previous Events Widget code that you originally copy-pasted to your website, and replace it with the new one. To retrieve the new one, follow these 3 steps:

1. Customize your widget

Go to our Events Widget code generator page and customize it for your artist.

2. Get your code

Click the Copy Code button at the bottom of our Events Widget code generator page to copy the code snippet to use on your website.

3. Update your website

Paste the code snippet into the HTML of your website where you want the widget to appear. That's it!

Bandsintown API upgrade

Bandsintown API v1 and v2 are being deprecated. In order to continue using the Bandsintown API, you must upgrade to Bandsintown API v3.

How do I know which version I'm using?

Simply check the base URL of the API in your code:

  • if it is api.bandsintown.com, you have to upgrade
  • if it is rest.bandsintown.com, you're all set and don't need to do anything

How do I upgrade to the latest version?

Check the technical documentation of the Bandsintown API here to familiarize yourself with the new structure of our responses. While the content is essentially the same as before, the ticket information is now regrouped in a new structure called "offers" and "facebook_rsvp_url" has been replaced by "url". See example below:
