Very very angry
by AHinMaine on 2019/12/12 12:11
The new version forces you to go through an account setup process that you can’t skip. It completely blew away my account. Everything. All of the bands I was tracking, comedians, everything. I spent quite a bit of time on this app and now it’s all gone. Never going to bother with this app again. What’s the point if it’s just going to flush my account down the toilet again on their next big update. Here’s a hint. Try using a QA team. TEST properly before you release. If you do have a QA team, get them off the golf course before a release. Uninstalled.
App is Fantastic

The app allows you to plug in all your favorite musical artists and then it will alert you whenever they are coming to your area! So awesome!
Great app

Useless for my intended purpose
by Mommasthinkalike on 2019/12/08 12:57
I wanted to be able to see the seat that I was picking before purchasing. This app is just a middle man they redirect you to the official website to purchase tickets. A waste of my valuable time. Sad. Smh.

I hope some of the bands I requested to come to our town will do so. I’m not sure who sees those requests, but that’s a great feature Along with knowing who’s on tour and coming to my city.

No Spotify / random Artists tracked
by Scched on 2019/12/05 02:24
I don’t understand what has happened to this app, but it sends me so many notifications for bands I’m not even tracking. It also has added a ton of artists that I don’t even have in my iTunes, and yet it says it started tracking them from my “Apple Music”. Also doesn’t scan my Spotify music, which from reading other comments, has been an issue for a while. Pretty annoying.
Horrible App

I never do reviews for apps honestly, but this is worth it. The other day I got a notification about three bands that I like all playing together and my friend texted me half an hour later, because he had seen it on social media. The point is this app is great and notifies you events/info about all of your favorite bands and it is super easy to use! Love it!

by Jshu73 on 2019/12/02 03:58
I wish I could set the distance for the search further than 150 miles. To pick up the Chicago area, I had to pick a city 100 miles from me. Also, the app seems to suggest artists that I don’t think have anything to do with who I want to follow.

Not happy with App
by ann961 on 2019/11/30 01:38
Ever since the last app update I have had to relog in like a new person and select bands to track. I have to keep syncing it with my iTunes and it’s not keeping tracking of the concerts I’m going to or the ones I’m interested in going to. I have loved this this app ever since it came out and downloaded it. Right now I am not happy with it. Please fix it or fix what was not broken.

I've been a fan of live music all of my life; grew up attending concerts with my parents who had season tickets to various venues, and bought single whenever and where ever the spirit moved them. Now - 50 years later, I'm still loving live music - and perhaps even more so. And now I have access to Bandsintown. It is always reliable, always relevant, and always useful. I just love it, and I don't know what I would do without it. Seriously.
Great app!!

Needless alerts
by Jimmy Again on 2019/11/28 12:22
Recently I have begun receiving alerts “____ is about to sell out”. For arena concerts which have been on sale for weeks. Obviously you do not need my help if it is “about to sell out”. I have tried to disable this new type of notification and have been unable. All I want is new concert alerts and nothing more.

by Fanged94 on 2019/11/25 22:14
This app used to work well allowing you to keep track of events in your area and giving you updates. Now even if I get an event notification or message I can’t see it because if I click to see the message I was sent from the app it will make me go through the same process you go through when first starting of selecting bands you like to keep track of which is fine but then it forces you to go to a different page and will not let you see the message/event.

I have a lot of emails and follow bands/ venues to keep up on shows. But sometimes things will slip past your radar and that’s why this app is so great. I’ll usually check it out Sunday for the upcoming week and it has all the info on shows you need!

Easiest Way to Get Great Tickets
by Why do I have to review? on 2019/11/24 01:45
I adore this app for enabling me to become the concert going adult that I always dreamed of. I love that it tells me about all the cool bands coming to my city, instead of just who’s coming to specific venues, that way I don’t miss my favorites if they choose a smaller venue.

I love this app and depend on it now to tell me when all my bands are coming to town, especially when it’s hard to keep up with venue email lists. It does seem to pick up on things when they are announced or when the artist announces it/puts it on their band profile. This app is a MUST HAVE for live music fans.

It’s A Total Assistant
by AmBrWvS on 2019/11/22 10:46
Bandsintown provides details and features I’ve not noticed in other apps. I’m able to get who and when, of course, but I’m able to see more than that on Bandsintown. It’s so great to view the seating at the venue. I enjoying listening to the artist’s music samples, or sending them a request to visit my town. The option to update my calendar is seamless - a favorite thing! Artists tours info, ticket purchases, sound bits, directions, and more are helpful uses for most audiences. I guess I could recommend an option to listen to an artist on their latest podcast interviews. I appreciate Bandsintown as is.
Best App-!
by JazzJake86 on 2019/04/03 23:26
I’ve been using this App for about 3 years. For the earliest notifications direct from the artist on upcoming performances in your town, it’s simply the best. I’ve bagged some great seats by getting an early heads up from Bandsintown. Take the time to go through the process of letting the Bandsintown App scan your fav streaming service and walk you through an easy and fun wizard to help ID not only your fav artists, but also artists who - based on your preferences, you would dig too. I need to step up my involvement in the Bandsintown community - and not sure about connecting to FB & other platforms. Would also be cool to share the pics and videos after the concert with your Bandsintown buddies, but right now, today I have zero. Anyway, it’s cool and much more than just an App - so go get it-!
Forced app download to login.
by CreateNicknameReview on 2019/11/15 16:17
Through the web browser the only login possible is through Facebook. Nobody in late ‘19 uses that anymore and either way, I don’t feel like giving them all my personal info. I always keep sign ups anonymously email. Figures the only way to login that way now is to download the app which is bs. This isn’t even the same as it used to be and went downhill. I’m moving back to Songkick and Live Nation. Invasion of privacy and greedy for demanding unwanted downloads. Update: found out it was even worse when I tried to find high demand tickets, just to wait in line for a que to still either force me to login first or select 5 minimum artists to track followed by other information and email confirmation. I understand this is a protection from bots, and the waiting line ia from a high volume of traffic but the website link is completely bugged out on desktop and the app forces you in every direction not to buy tickets. If you're new you would have to find out for yourself but I've used this "service" for over 5 years now and it keeps declining after every "update". I literally had to use one of their competitors, Live Nation and even their website had a separate major issue but still wasn't as bad as this. The artist's website immediately directed to this one, but this proves nothing beats ol' Ticketmaster or something.
Used to be better
by Dolly Barker on 2019/01/21 20:26
Had the app for over 5 years. They seem to be losing their way a bit. I find it weird that when you follow an artist and can see they’re playing a festival, you’re not able to click on the name of a festival and see the whole lineup or any info about it. The addition of festival lineups and global music events that are worth traveling to would add a lot of value. I want that ‘omg I have to go’ feeling. The timeline idea is good in theory except that most artists really don’t use the platform so it’s kind of pointless until they do. Apparently the customer service on the artists end is pretty bad which may explain why they’re not really using what should be a great platform to connect with fans. Would love to see them turn it around, but judging by emails focused on promoting new artists, they seem more preoccupied with acting like a hipster record label. For me, more value would come from it functioning as an informational and social platform getting people hyped about music events.
Wrong concert and terrible customer service app
by JustLetMeSubmitMyDangReview on 2018/09/28 04:00
I’ve been trying to contact bandsintown help and submit a ticket but the app won’t submit the form and won’t tell me what’s wrong with the information or what’s missing instead it just makes me start over and re-enter my info. After 5+ attempts I’m even more frustrated than the initial incident I was trying to report. Usually I rely on this app to stay up to date on what concerts are coming up and now I don’t trust it. I received a notification of an artist I was excited to see so I clicked the artist’s page, saw the tour date listed and clicked the link to buy tickets directly from the artist’s page only to show up to the concert extremely disappointed that the tickets I purchased were for a totally different artist. Feels like false advertisement and the fact that there’s no decent way to report thru the app or call a customer support line I’m kind of over this app. Thanks for the let down 👍🏼
Amazing app. 💗🙌🏼
by bunni317 on 2019/11/02 06:49
I’ve had this app for years now and it has honestly never failed me. It’s on top of everything I could ever ask for and purchasing tickets through them has always been so quick and easy. It tracks all of my favorite artists; when and where they’ll be near me. Right now I just purchased tickets through this app after having so many issues through SeatGeek and other resell apps. Bandsintown gives you great deals, detailed info, and overall the best options you can get for purchasing tickets to any concert. This app always saves the day. HIGHLY recommend if you always go to shows/concerts on the regular.
Sooo much better than Songkick
by Dancin Forever on 2019/03/06 09:37
After a mediocre experience w Songkick, Bandsintown is a breath of fresh air! Shortcuts to listen to artists is very useful. Automated scanning works if the app tells you *where* it got it from and the app pops up a summary to uncheck recent artists scanned every so often. Being able to mark a show “maybe” & have an ordered list (RSVPs) of shows coming up works well (not to mention it’s super useful it publishes them to yr calendar) My only gripe (and big enough to dock a star) is events are missing and even after reporting them, still don’t show up (at least temporarily put them in our RSVP list until you verify it!). I also noticed today, Songkick appears to get event announcements sooner - thus I won’t be deleting Songkick just yet...
Not necessarily the fastest, but it is convenient.
by SdKuAb on 2018/07/25 19:55
I like getting notifications announcing when my favorite performers are coming... but whenever I contact a specific friend of mine about a show, not only is he already aware of it, he sometimes already has tickets. (Which begs the question, why didn’t he tell me about it?) Other than missing some presale discounts, it hasn’t really mattered though. It asks me to login to my iTunes far too often and I wish there was a way I could select Recommend Artists that I don’t like so I stop receiving information about them... but that’s all I can really complain about. Solid overall. It certainly beats the disappointment of finding out about a show after it already happened.
Keeps me in “the Loop”
by Dr.RaeRae on 2019/10/10 17:44
Living in a Metropolitan area is great; especially if you enjoy live entertainment, right? Well, daily life moves fast and before you know it, you lose track of a lot of great live shows that blow through town. Then, I gotta hear about what a great show I missed from someone’s girlfriend who just happened to be at the venue and blah, bl-blah, bl-blah. But with Bandsintown I stay in “the Loop” when it comes to hearing about great bands coming to town! By accessing the music on my phone app, Bandsintown tags artists I like; genres I prefer, and venues I favor and immediately notifies me of upcoming shows I won’t want to miss. These days, my family and I see about two-dozen live shows a year from epic bands!! Accolades go out to Bandsintown! Keep up the great work! - Dr. Robert
Hands down, then up for high fives, best app
by John bygone on 2019/08/31 15:49
Wow. Great job on this you all. The biggest thing is having the best platform to connect artists with fans. I use it to discover new artists and I have a good story about that. I like how we now have a way to listen to bands, but it would be nice to see what genre they are beforehand. Also I have Apple Music and whenever I clicked to play it would just say, “You are already a user of Apple Music” Also I have a problem looking shows up by venue. I’d really like to be in the know about your app. I just subscribed to the manager version because I am a music promoter. It would be my pleasure to give my two cents on development!!!
Learn of ticket sales
by Pop Xmas 2014 on 2017/09/22 21:13
I have been able to buy tickets to show I would normally miss because I learn of these shows before they go on sale because of this app sending me notification. If you want to buy tickets through the app, make sure the place where the tickets are purchased has the correct info. I just got tickets to Art Garfunkel. The Borgata web site had no info of this sale. I was able to call and get the tickets. The web site had wrong credit card info, so I wasn't able to process online. I love this app and I find it very helpful. This summer will be known as the summer of concerts because of this app!
Great!
by Blisstix on 2018/06/25 23:02
I am really greatful to have this app, anytime I am looking to go out for a concert I open it up and almost always find something interesting. I think they do pretty well for lesser known bands too. I like that sometimes they have the ticket prices available within the app, I would like to see that more often though. Through Facebook it has all my favorite bands listed, and I can track my top favorite bands. You can search bands, locations, and events. Even see the line up for the show. RSVP, and comment within the app to connect with other people going to that show. Thanks Bandsintown!
Hard to use, hijacks my device browser
by steve_2525 on 2019/08/20 15:35
I’m about to delete this app from my iOS devices. It takes over Safari whenever opened. It’s hard/impossible to navigate through, hard closing is the only way to get it off my screen- often without the info I hoped to get. It-and the developers-sem more interested in gathering my data than providing me with useful info. Today I got a message notification from a favorite artist- just the tease notification that there was a message, no indication of what it concerned (something that could have been easily put in the notification). I’ve done this dance before, but fell for it again: and Clicked Thru to the app. The app threw up a splash screen asking for more personal info from me. I couldn’t get past this screen to view the message without entering data sp I exited- as I’m about to do wit Bandsintown in general.
Loved this app
by hedededede on 2018/10/16 22:46
Once upon a time, this app was great for finding out about local concerts. Now, it’s full of bugs. The notification settings were never amazing. But suddenly, I couldn’t get the app to stop sending me useless notifications about artists supposedly messaging me (even from bands I don’t follow??) and it has almost stopped sending me concert reminders all together. I was getting at least 3-4 notifications a week that Mae had sent me a message. I don’t follow Mae, never listened to them, and the phantom messages never materialized when I opened the app. I tried adjusting notification setting several times without relief. So finally, I broke down, deleted the app, and reinstalled it. Now I can’t log in. At all. All I get is “server error, check your connection”. Get your act together Bandsintown.
Not impressed
by Pyropod on 2017/11/06 16:59
Hopeful, but first impression is NOT a good one. I have NO desire to give anyone access to my life (including my library) just to get tour dates. That's one reason I don't belong to any of the online library apps out there. My music library is huge and I don't feel the need to know the movements of every artist I listen to. That was complaint #1. #2 is their idea of selecting bands you might want to know about is to throw everyone up on screen in RANDOM ORDER. Seriously? You expect me to spend hours looking at every band/artist that ever put out a song, in random order? Ever heard of alphabetizing? How about a simple search field? You do realize that many of these artists don't tour at all, and many are actually dead! News flash: Simon and Garfunkel split up decades ago! So why should I have to sort through them to find what I actually want?
Great idea, a bit buggy
by Rach998 on 2017/08/13 12:21
App has so many bands connected. Push notifications are great. Kudos. However, the app doesn't refresh well when changing locations, following new bands. App needs to be restarted before it will pick up your changes. If you can handle these issues, you've got a wonderful tool in your pocket. New ideas for the team: Search radius expands beyond 150 miles (would like to have two large cities in my search scope, not just one). And allow specific date searches (say I'm going on a trip in 3 months and want to know who's playing in that town... I shouldn't have to scroll through the next 3 months to see the 1 week I want)
This solves a big problem
by mediawolf on 2019/11/16 08:44
My tastes are pretty specific. There are quite a few artists that I like in various a genres, but it’s pretty rare that any of them actually come to my town to play. That means when I look at the weekly local listings, there’s a terrible signal-to-noise ratio. It’s like sifting for gold. It’s way easier to just track the artists. And BandsInTown tracks everyone. (Cue Gary Oldman shouting “EVERYONE!!!!”) That means my FOMO is gone. If a band I like comes to town, I’ll know. Period. It’s a solved problem, a non-issue. It’s an added bonus that through the app I can ask the artists to come play here.
Great but the new update is really bad.
by Dante Berkely on 2019/11/15 18:04
Have been using Bandsintown for about 3 or 4 years, and it’s always been reliable and given me the earliest notifications for tour announcements and more. But with the newest update, every time I open the app it prompts me as if it’s my first time using the app, and all of my push notifications are never able to be viewed because it says I’m not following the artist who literally just sent me a notification. Not so impressed with the update, please fix it, I didn’t know that One of my favorite bands announced a spring tour in my city until the day after the announcement, when i scrolled past it on Twitter. Please fix the app I have loved and used it for so long. 5 stars before the update.
Seems great, but it’s flawed
by easplane on 2018/08/22 19:07
Been using this app for a while now without fault. Recently, however, I hear one of my favorite bands is coming to the area - which I’d been waiting eight long years for - and that tickets go on sale on 8/17 at 5:00 PM. I set two alarms, one the day before and one an hour before, so that I can’t possibly forget. I wake up the morning of the 17th and I find out immediately from a different source that tickets went on sale at 9:00 AM, and they sold out immediately. Bandsintown posted the WRONG TIME. Now, I have to consider getting scalped tickets (the lowest price on StubHub is 250% what it was originally going for) or waiting another eight years until they come to town again. Thanks for ruining one of the most exciting opportunities I’ve had in years, Bandsintown.
Eh
by Dilly_Mecc on 2019/03/08 03:29
Decent app for finding shows- the alerts of upcoming events have been handy. Some other features are just plain pointless, e.g. “messages from artists” - these are sent to you with notification saying “[xyz] artist messaged you” as if they are DMin you. When in reality it’s more akin to “an artist you track posted to their wall about [uninteresting news].” Worst part, hands down, is the user interface though. It’s pretty horrible, it just does not flow in anyway. No matter what you click, you feel like the app is actively working against you. Also, with the most recent update, I was logged out of my account and can’t seem to get back in. Had to start a new account with a different email.
Spams notifications
by a_big_dave on 2019/02/15 05:42
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me when the bands I follow are in town. I give it two stars because it does in fact do that. Unfortunately, in addition to its promised function, it constantly spams my notifications telling me I should follow more bands and that it has recommendations for bands and events I might like. None of these recommendations get even close to mark or seem to be based on a sane algorithm. They’re just spammy and lazy “use our app more please!” type of things, and they make it difficult to separate the actual notifications from the spam. And worst of all, the spam notifications are written in this over familiar, cloying manner (e.g. ❤️ you, we found some events you might like. 🤘 rock on!). You’re not my friend, you’re an app.
Can't recommend enough!
by AlmaLovesMusic on 2017/08/12 16:01
I have been using this app for at least a couple of years now. I recommend it to every music lover I know in every city I go to! I travel a lot for work and I'm always checking this app to see what shows are going on. I love how it has evolved to include date ranges. The mileage range is a huge plus, since I live in a small border town that doesn't get much action. This app lets me see who's on tour that I otherwise wouldn't have noticed, since most don't come to my city. It also allows me to plan for future travel, and dream a little (Rancid in Paris perhaps?)
Jumpstarted my live music life
by Absintheur on 2018/03/28 16:42
This is a kickass app, the most life-changing I’ve ever experienced. As a middle aged dad I’d written off concerts as overpriced hype and gotten out of he habit of going to live shows. This app changed that - it scans your music library and alerts you when bands you like (or might find out you like) are in your area. For me, it’s meant seeing scores of awesome shows in inexpensive (like $20 on average) intimate venues by indie bands I’ve been listening to (some new, some since the ‘90s) but had never seen before. What a joy it’s been to get back into the flow. Rock on with Bands in Town.
Helpful app
by jkloyup on 2018/11/05 01:38
This app will help you if your a metal head like me or if you just enjoy music and want to see your favorite musician or band you can track your favorite bands in mile radius or click track the UI is simple and not just 1,000 sub menus it tells you exact bands from every genre this app has helped me track my favorites down and also they give you websites to buy tickets from this app was recommended to me by heavy metal entertainment make sure you check those brits out they are quite witty and hilarious anyways 10/10 would stalk bands again
It’s A Total Assistant
by AmBrWvS on 2019/11/22 10:46
Bandsintown provides details and features I’ve not noticed in other apps. I’m able to get who and when, of course, but I’m able to see more than that on Bandsintown. It’s so great to view the seating at the venue. I enjoying listening to the artist’s music samples, or sending them a request to visit my town. The option to update my calendar is seamless - a favorite thing! Artists tours info, ticket purchases, sound bits, directions, and more are helpful uses for most audiences. I guess I could recommend an option to listen to an artist on their latest podcast interviews. I appreciate Bandsintown as is.
Life saver
by Jericho Powers on 2019/10/12 01:46
As a huge music lover and musician, this app changed the way I view concerts. I used to just stick with the bands I listened to most and tried to keep up with their tours, but since using this app, I’ve probably went to5 or 6 times the amount of concerts that I did before, directly due to the fact that I got advanced notices of when bands I like (or similar to what I like) we’re going to be in the area near me. Seriously, I don’t miss any shows anymore unless I have things I was already doing, or work. Can’t rate this app high enough.
Don’t even bother
by NICKNAME FOR GODS SAKE on 2018/08/04 21:37
This app shows you bands that aren’t even near you, I have gone to concerts in my state that this app didn’t even notify me of. Not to mention the fact that their customer service is non existent. I have emailed them several times asking for them to stop emailing me and I have turned all notifications off in the app and outside and reported the messages as spam, but since they are from different artist each time, I keep getting emails. SUPER annoyed and not going to use this app again. Edit: to the developer, no, I will not email you again asking for help because I have already emailed you and told you that I have already solved the problem all by myself, but you wouldn’t know that because you don’t check your emails do you. Thanks!! xx
Love it and recommend it!
by Lvlylisa on 2018/04/14 09:48
Think of this like Pandora for live music - it suggests band playing out that you’re likely to like based on your taste in music. And you can preview the band’s sound without leaving the app. If you travel, it will start to suggest shows as soon as you land. Only downside is the search function for a specific date and place if say, you know next month you’ll be in Boston, as you search a list and follow a band link, when you hit the back button you end up at the top of the original list.
Sanity Saver
by ZynniaOG on 2019/05/23 01:43
Concerts and live music are my happy place. And when I moved to the other side of the country I didn't know where all the good venues and distance alternative venues I could go to or if my favorite music artists even came to my area! My client showed me Bandsintown and I was blown away! I spent that whole night following artist after artists, RSVP'ing, and buying tickets. Needless to say, I'm never at a loss anymore and I'm always ahead of my concert game. My happy place is back and more alive than ever! Thanks for keeping me connected Bandsintown. You da bomb!
Very convenient
by Yo Mommas Block on 2018/02/20 08:59
Very useful app only problem is it doesn’t update me on some of the more underground artists. There’s been a few shows that are barely making the recommendation section and it lists the headliners who are artists I don’t really care for (don’t have any of their music on my phone whatsoever) but when I check the bill it’ll have openers who happen to be some of my favorite performers. Just makes me wonder how much gold I’ve skipped out on based off the fact that my preferred artists aren’t getting listed in the upcoming show section. Other then that it’s a great app.
Only one complaint
by AliNGustin11 on 2019/04/03 02:56
Bandsintown is an awesome app and does everything exceptionally well. The only thing i would say is that they could improve their notifications for refunds and cancelled shows. Me and my boyfriend bought tickets for a Bring Me the Horizon concert in February, and I went to check where the concert was on the app and it was gone. So i checked if it was still happening and it had been canceled. Bandsintown never notified me, sent me an email or anything, neither did ticketmaster (which is where bandsintown leads you to buy tickets.) I wouldn't have known and we would've showed up to a canceled show if I hadn't checked our tickets.
Couldn't complete my ticket purchase.
by Bella1502 on 2018/06/01 15:30
Tried purchasing two tickets for a show this morning and I got to the "complete your purchase" screen and there was nowhere to click or go to actually complete the purchase. I'm at work so I cannot purchase tickets on my computer and mobile is the only way. I sat there like a dummy just watching the 5 minute clock count down hoping something would refresh or change and it never did. I am so frustrated. Now, because of the glitch, I am unable to get decent seats without spending 4 times as much money, in just a matter of minutes! I can't believe this app has such a good rating. I will never use it again. Bandsintown will forever in my mind be the app that screwed me out of concert tickets.
It tells me when my favorite artists are in town
by AngelWithAShotgun666 on 2019/01/20 00:15
I live in Maryland. It’s a pretty small state with not that many big cities, which means there aren’t many concerts. There could be a few in DC and maybe one in Baltimore but that’s it. It’s hard to find concerts so this app really just keeps track of everything for me. I can put events as interested or going, I can see what’s nearby, even smaller artists. And I can see others who are selling tickets or can go cause I have no one to go with cause I have no friends.........
A must have for live music lovers
by luvinmusic71 on 2017/07/26 06:22
I've told countless people about this app. It's especially useful when you move to a new city and you don't know the venues. When I moved to Portland Oregon only the MODA Center used Ticket Master so all the other venues that were anything smaller than arena used other ticketing agencies. This app has EVERY show that I could see in Portland. I use it when I'm traveling to other cities and want to hit a live show as well. Scans all of my music and keeps tracks of every artists tour. Exactly what I want.
I don't care what the bands post/say/eat/photo
by i6ix on 2017/08/16 23:50
Omg let me turn that stuff off. I was able to mostly rid myself of the emails and push notifications but please understand something--- I DO NOT CARE WHAT THE BANDS POST--- most of the bands the you notify me about are far from my favorites. I don't want this feature at all! If I can't rid myself of it completely soon, I'll simply stop using this service. It's been good to have, but you've confused me for someone who is creepy obsessed with getting constant updates about people I don't know. I'm not that guy. We all live in notification hell and I will delete installs until my phone shuts up.
Game changing App for the music lover
by Fearlessnes on 2019/05/03 01:22
I'm a professional photographer and specialize in environmental portraits of musicians and characters. As I travel frequently all over the country, Bandsintown has become an indispensable tool. After years of shooting shows at large venues I'm always on the look out for more intimate performances. Bandsintown has kept me updated on small house parties and shows near me whenever the journey finds me. It's allowed me to set aside the industry and my work while on the road and to return to my roots as a music lover.
Wonderful application
by TallahasseeMan on 2017/08/08 17:42
This app is sooo useful that it is hard to describe! It gives me information on who is playing when and where that I have not been able to find anywhere else! The daily newspaper gets regularly smoked by the app. And because it scans your music it presents opportunities to see great bands that are loved by me! It is the best at what it does!! PSin previous post I forgot to hit the stars to show my appreciation of this app. 5 stars is what I wanted to say last time. I got it right this time!
What happened?
by Meggie 80 on 2019/01/08 05:10
I used to love this app. a lot more because it showed all concerts in a specified area in the bubble view. In the past year, however, there was some kind of update and it will no longer show all bands and instead only shows a subset related to bands I check off as liking. This is a pain. Please allow a view of all bands in town without having to sift through and check off all bands I’ve ever liked. While doing so may enhance the recommendations I don’t have time or interest in that. I just want to monitor the app. for all future concerts so I can see who is coming and make plans. Thank you.
Less than the sum of its parts
by madtho on 2019/01/13 15:21
Everything that should make this service awesome is here, I just never feel like I’m finding what I want, or I have to sift through tons of stuff to see what I’m interested in and frankly I just lose interest. Recommendations rarely work for me on any service, and it’s no different here. Some of the artists I like can be lumped into categories with lots of crap, but I guess that’s the way of the world. Maybe I’m missing these things, but… - I’d like to follow some venues, instead of just a radius. I don’t need to know about every bar band in the city, some preferred venues reliably book artists I want to see. - if there’s a way to tune notifications I can’t figure it out. If I RSVP or ‘maybe’ a show, I should get a reminder that it’s coming, then maybe I’ll remember to go. Right now I get a ‘how was the show?’ notification. I don’t know how it was, I didn’t go because I forgot it existed. Hope this is helpful, I think they’re on the right track. Hopefully it improves.
I would have given zero stars if I could
by raree reviewer on 2018/07/18 21:27
This app told me that one of my favorite bands was playing a headline show at MSG. So naturally I spent a lot of money on tickets for the show. Today, the day before the show, I find out that the band I was hoping to see is only opening for another artist. I found this out from another source (NOT BANDSINTOWN). I then found out that my band was not playing tomorrow night at all because the drummer got injured. I also found this out from another source. The Bandsintown app did not alert me of any of these changes or details. So now I am stuck going to a concert tomorrow to see two artists that I do not like and it is too late to sell or return my tickets. I am triggered. Thanks for reading. NOT YOU BANDSINTOWN!
Some improvements could be made
by worldtraveler05 on 2018/07/10 14:56
I love the idea of this service. There are a few really annoying things though about it. One, I’m really tired of getting the “blah blah artist sent you a message” notifications. No, they didn’t send me a message. Their team posted something on the site. I don’t want those. I wish it was easy to turn that stuff off. I wish it was easier to get rid of artists you don’t necessarily want to follow just because they’re suggested because of another artist I may be following. I want the option to opt out of that. Just wish in general it was a little easier to use and such.
Radius is too limited!!
by JamesTexas on 2017/12/01 16:24
I live in Texas and have friends all across the State. Traveling to see shows with my friends is a great excuse to connect. I’d like to see where my favorites are playing within a slightly larger area. I’d say 600 miles should cover most of it. Well, if I set my location near the center. Otherwise, let us setup more than 4 locations! I would love to setup a radius for Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Lubbock, Corpus Christi & Amarillo to cover some of Texas. Then, move on to add Phoenix, Albuquerque, OKC, KC, NOLA, Birmingham, etc. Thanks for considering additions for those who don’t lead a sedentary life. 🙂
Approved 👍🏻👍🏻
by ToobSockGuy on 2018/03/24 17:21
Love this app, occasionally you might have to search for bands that might be playing in your area. But nevertheless the shows pop up quick, very informative. Not to mention it will introduce similar artists you may know/ find out about right there, so boom a bigger playlist new music. l Getting tickets for the shows is easy access, and quick. Matching you with great prices. I love this app a lot, I keep up with shows like crazy because it’ll notify me weeks even a month or so before the shows. Recommend this app 100%
Great app to find local stuff
by Mr Gimbles on 2018/03/29 01:06
One time I was stranded on an island , for decades I had to survive on beets , salt water , and the bark of a palm tree I had to cut down for survival spears (spears made for survival). I contemplated giving up and jumping off the very tall three foot cliffs that would certainly ruin my knees.... In the long run. Then suddenly from the blackness of night a boat appeared on the horizon ... I yelled "PLEASE IM HERE HELP ME" They yelled back " yes, we hear you. Use proper punctuation...idiot. I ran down to the shore where i had originally landed all those years ago. Out of that boat walked .... Oh hello can I help you? Yes, writing a story you , you seemed to have barged in here ..... What's that?... You wanted to know what I thought of an app ?... I already said it's a great app to find local stuff ... What more do you need ????? You've ruined everything. Now I have to tell my story somewhere else .
Pretty great
by YeahYeahBros09 on 2018/04/08 21:39
It’s really good. It lets you leave messages to the band/group and request that they “play your town”. You can buy tickets directly from the app. It has many different features and does exactly what it says in the description. There’s only one function that I think would make the experience better, and that would be possibly having a link to the set lists if they’ve been released yet, if the band is on tour that is. Other than that, it’s fantastic.
Didn’t miss the reunion
by bowchap on 2018/02/14 14:50
I love the band Jump Little Children, but they stopped performing together several years ago....I’d say about 10 years. Every so often, I’d check their website to see if a reunion of some sort was going to take place. Fortunately, I was also tracking them through Bands in Town. I received an email alerting me about their new tour and have since received another email about another weekend they played. I always check the app for concerts now. Love it!
Terrible app!
by Musicloverlp on 2017/12/18 20:43
This app sent me to the wrong artist! Her picture was there on my notification! Masha coming to Phoenix Dec 17,2017. I was so excited I was going to see my favorite singer. I missed my Christmas Party , drove over 50 miles, fought with my boyfriend all day because he had to work late so I thought I was going to miss her perform. We get there and it’s a DJ named Masha. I showed the venue the notification I had received and they were so apologetic as I had bought pre-sale tickets which they promptly refunded.... but they couldn’t bring Masha. This is not something that should happen. You affected so much in my life because you cross referenced a pic you found in your data and slapped it on the wrong Masha! Clean up your act or get out of the business!
Best app
by Dearjfree on 2018/02/03 21:23
If you're looking for something to do spur of the moment in a new town or your own, this app is perfect. I used this app in Seattle, WA to find upcoming shows in Austin, TX to buy tickets for a loved one's birthday. I've seen way more shows I actually want to see because it's an organized way to find them! I do wish the algorithm could pick up on the weird mix of my genre taste better and then recommend nightly shows based upon that - instead of having to pick a genre!
Great Concert Finder
by Kaniatris on 2019/01/19 09:19
This is a great app for finding concerts! I love searching through it for my favorite bands! I wish you could block artists from showing up in the searches so that it would just show bands I want to see and I wish that you could set the search radius father away than just 150 miles (I’ve drove way farther to see a band at a certain location. And even though they were closer, it was not on a day I was off work) Other than that... It’s awesome!
MUSIC JUNKIE MUST HAVE
by Ozzy Osboner on 2019/09/27 19:32
Never write a review for anything. But I’ve had this app for a few years now and never had a problem with it. Love the fact you can set a distance for how far you’re be willing to travel for a show. Also the list of artists performing day to day even if you don’t know them. Found out about a lot of stuff I didn’t know was going on because of this app. It just all around user friendly in my book. 👍👍 two left thumbs up.

Very very angry
by AHinMaine on 2019/12/12 12:11
The new version forces you to go through an account setup process that you can’t skip. It completely blew away my account. Everything. All of the bands I was tracking, comedians, everything. I spent quite a bit of time on this app and now it’s all gone. Never going to bother with this app again. What’s the point if it’s just going to flush my account down the toilet again on their next big update. Here’s a hint. Try using a QA team. TEST properly before you release. If you do have a QA team, get them off the golf course before a release. Uninstalled.
App is Fantastic
by lawlessunlimited on 2019/12/11 23:29
The app allows you to plug in all your favorite musical artists and then it will alert you whenever they are coming to your area! So awesome!
Great app

Bugs?

Every time I try to get tickets on the app it crashes. Definitely frustrating.

I like the easy artist search and how well the organization is when buying a ticket and everything. I have bought like at least 3 tickets and it’s worth it. First year into going to the best concerts.

Great app to keep up on live performances of all the bands I love.
Useless for my intended purpose
by Mommasthinkalike on 2019/12/08 12:57
I wanted to be able to see the seat that I was picking before purchasing. This app is just a middle man they redirect you to the official website to purchase tickets. A waste of my valuable time. Sad. Smh.

I hope some of the bands I requested to come to our town will do so. I’m not sure who sees those requests, but that’s a great feature Along with knowing who’s on tour and coming to my city.

No Spotify / random Artists tracked
by Scched on 2019/12/05 02:24
I don’t understand what has happened to this app, but it sends me so many notifications for bands I’m not even tracking. It also has added a ton of artists that I don’t even have in my iTunes, and yet it says it started tracking them from my “Apple Music”. Also doesn’t scan my Spotify music, which from reading other comments, has been an issue for a while. Pretty annoying.
Horrible App

I never do reviews for apps honestly, but this is worth it. The other day I got a notification about three bands that I like all playing together and my friend texted me half an hour later, because he had seen it on social media. The point is this app is great and notifies you events/info about all of your favorite bands and it is super easy to use! Love it!

by Jshu73 on 2019/12/02 03:58
I wish I could set the distance for the search further than 150 miles. To pick up the Chicago area, I had to pick a city 100 miles from me. Also, the app seems to suggest artists that I don’t think have anything to do with who I want to follow.

Not happy with App
by ann961 on 2019/11/30 01:38
Ever since the last app update I have had to relog in like a new person and select bands to track. I have to keep syncing it with my iTunes and it’s not keeping tracking of the concerts I’m going to or the ones I’m interested in going to. I have loved this this app ever since it came out and downloaded it. Right now I am not happy with it. Please fix it or fix what was not broken.

I've been a fan of live music all of my life; grew up attending concerts with my parents who had season tickets to various venues, and bought single whenever and where ever the spirit moved them. Now - 50 years later, I'm still loving live music - and perhaps even more so. And now I have access to Bandsintown. It is always reliable, always relevant, and always useful. I just love it, and I don't know what I would do without it. Seriously.

Needless alerts
by Jimmy Again on 2019/11/28 12:22
Recently I have begun receiving alerts “____ is about to sell out”. For arena concerts which have been on sale for weeks. Obviously you do not need my help if it is “about to sell out”. I have tried to disable this new type of notification and have been unable. All I want is new concert alerts and nothing more.

This app used to work well allowing you to keep track of events in your area and giving you updates. Now even if I get an event notification or message I can’t see it because if I click to see the message I was sent from the app it will make me go through the same process you go through when first starting of selecting bands you like to keep track of which is fine but then it forces you to go to a different page and will not let you see the message/event.

I have a lot of emails and follow bands/ venues to keep up on shows. But sometimes things will slip past your radar and that’s why this app is so great. I’ll usually check it out Sunday for the upcoming week and it has all the info on shows you need!

Easiest Way to Get Great Tickets

I adore this app for enabling me to become the concert going adult that I always dreamed of. I love that it tells me about all the cool bands coming to my city, instead of just who’s coming to specific venues, that way I don’t miss my favorites if they choose a smaller venue.

I love this app and depend on it now to tell me when all my bands are coming to town, especially when it’s hard to keep up with venue email lists. It does seem to pick up on things when they are announced or when the artist announces it/puts it on their band profile. This app is a MUST HAVE for live music fans.

It’s A Total Assistant
by AmBrWvS on 2019/11/22 10:46
Bandsintown provides details and features I’ve not noticed in other apps. I’m able to get who and when, of course, but I’m able to see more than that on Bandsintown. It’s so great to view the seating at the venue. I enjoying listening to the artist’s music samples, or sending them a request to visit my town. The option to update my calendar is seamless - a favorite thing! Artists tours info, ticket purchases, sound bits, directions, and more are helpful uses for most audiences. I guess I could recommend an option to listen to an artist on their latest podcast interviews. I appreciate Bandsintown as is.
Best App-!
by JazzJake86 on 2019/04/03 23:26
I’ve been using this App for about 3 years. For the earliest notifications direct from the artist on upcoming performances in your town, it’s simply the best. I’ve bagged some great seats by getting an early heads up from Bandsintown. Take the time to go through the process of letting the Bandsintown App scan your fav streaming service and walk you through an easy and fun wizard to help ID not only your fav artists, but also artists who - based on your preferences, you would dig too. I need to step up my involvement in the Bandsintown community - and not sure about connecting to FB & other platforms. Would also be cool to share the pics and videos after the concert with your Bandsintown buddies, but right now, today I have zero. Anyway, it’s cool and much more than just an App - so go get it-!
Forced app download to login.
by CreateNicknameReview on 2019/11/15 16:17
Through the web browser the only login possible is through Facebook. Nobody in late ‘19 uses that anymore and either way, I don’t feel like giving them all my personal info. I always keep sign ups anonymously email. Figures the only way to login that way now is to download the app which is bs. This isn’t even the same as it used to be and went downhill. I’m moving back to Songkick and Live Nation. Invasion of privacy and greedy for demanding unwanted downloads. Update: found out it was even worse when I tried to find high demand tickets, just to wait in line for a que to still either force me to login first or select 5 minimum artists to track followed by other information and email confirmation. I understand this is a protection from bots, and the waiting line ia from a high volume of traffic but the website link is completely bugged out on desktop and the app forces you in every direction not to buy tickets. If you're new you would have to find out for yourself but I've used this "service" for over 5 years now and it keeps declining after every "update". I literally had to use one of their competitors, Live Nation and even their website had a separate major issue but still wasn't as bad as this. The artist's website immediately directed to this one, but this proves nothing beats ol' Ticketmaster or something.
Used to be better
by Dolly Barker on 2019/01/21 20:26
Had the app for over 5 years. They seem to be losing their way a bit. I find it weird that when you follow an artist and can see they’re playing a festival, you’re not able to click on the name of a festival and see the whole lineup or any info about it. The addition of festival lineups and global music events that are worth traveling to would add a lot of value. I want that ‘omg I have to go’ feeling. The timeline idea is good in theory except that most artists really don’t use the platform so it’s kind of pointless until they do. Apparently the customer service on the artists end is pretty bad which may explain why they’re not really using what should be a great platform to connect with fans. Would love to see them turn it around, but judging by emails focused on promoting new artists, they seem more preoccupied with acting like a hipster record label. For me, more value would come from it functioning as an informational and social platform getting people hyped about music events.
Wrong concert and terrible customer service app
by JustLetMeSubmitMyDangReview on 2018/09/28 04:00
I’ve been trying to contact bandsintown help and submit a ticket but the app won’t submit the form and won’t tell me what’s wrong with the information or what’s missing instead it just makes me start over and re-enter my info. After 5+ attempts I’m even more frustrated than the initial incident I was trying to report. Usually I rely on this app to stay up to date on what concerts are coming up and now I don’t trust it. I received a notification of an artist I was excited to see so I clicked the artist’s page, saw the tour date listed and clicked the link to buy tickets directly from the artist’s page only to show up to the concert extremely disappointed that the tickets I purchased were for a totally different artist. Feels like false advertisement and the fact that there’s no decent way to report thru the app or call a customer support line I’m kind of over this app. Thanks for the let down 👍🏼
Amazing app. 💗🙌🏼
by bunni317 on 2019/11/02 06:49
I’ve had this app for years now and it has honestly never failed me. It’s on top of everything I could ever ask for and purchasing tickets through them has always been so quick and easy. It tracks all of my favorite artists; when and where they’ll be near me. Right now I just purchased tickets through this app after having so many issues through SeatGeek and other resell apps. Bandsintown gives you great deals, detailed info, and overall the best options you can get for purchasing tickets to any concert. This app always saves the day. HIGHLY recommend if you always go to shows/concerts on the regular.
Sooo much better than Songkick
by Dancin Forever on 2019/03/06 09:37
After a mediocre experience w Songkick, Bandsintown is a breath of fresh air! Shortcuts to listen to artists is very useful. Automated scanning works if the app tells you *where* it got it from and the app pops up a summary to uncheck recent artists scanned every so often. Being able to mark a show “maybe” & have an ordered list (RSVPs) of shows coming up works well (not to mention it’s super useful it publishes them to yr calendar) My only gripe (and big enough to dock a star) is events are missing and even after reporting them, still don’t show up (at least temporarily put them in our RSVP list until you verify it!). I also noticed today, Songkick appears to get event announcements sooner - thus I won’t be deleting Songkick just yet...
Not necessarily the fastest, but it is convenient.
by SdKuAb on 2018/07/25 19:55
I like getting notifications announcing when my favorite performers are coming... but whenever I contact a specific friend of mine about a show, not only is he already aware of it, he sometimes already has tickets. (Which begs the question, why didn’t he tell me about it?) Other than missing some presale discounts, it hasn’t really mattered though. It asks me to login to my iTunes far too often and I wish there was a way I could select Recommend Artists that I don’t like so I stop receiving information about them... but that’s all I can really complain about. Solid overall. It certainly beats the disappointment of finding out about a show after it already happened.
Keeps me in “the Loop”
by Dr.RaeRae on 2019/10/10 17:44
Living in a Metropolitan area is great; especially if you enjoy live entertainment, right? Well, daily life moves fast and before you know it, you lose track of a lot of great live shows that blow through town. Then, I gotta hear about what a great show I missed from someone’s girlfriend who just happened to be at the venue and blah, bl-blah, bl-blah. But with Bandsintown I stay in “the Loop” when it comes to hearing about great bands coming to town! By accessing the music on my phone app, Bandsintown tags artists I like; genres I prefer, and venues I favor and immediately notifies me of upcoming shows I won’t want to miss. These days, my family and I see about two-dozen live shows a year from epic bands!! Accolades go out to Bandsintown! Keep up the great work! - Dr. Robert
Hands down, then up for high fives, best app
by John bygone on 2019/08/31 15:49
Wow. Great job on this you all. The biggest thing is having the best platform to connect artists with fans. I use it to discover new artists and I have a good story about that. I like how we now have a way to listen to bands, but it would be nice to see what genre they are beforehand. Also I have Apple Music and whenever I clicked to play it would just say, “You are already a user of Apple Music” Also I have a problem looking shows up by venue. I’d really like to be in the know about your app. I just subscribed to the manager version because I am a music promoter. It would be my pleasure to give my two cents on development!!!
Learn of ticket sales
by Pop Xmas 2014 on 2017/09/22 21:13
I have been able to buy tickets to show I would normally miss because I learn of these shows before they go on sale because of this app sending me notification. If you want to buy tickets through the app, make sure the place where the tickets are purchased has the correct info. I just got tickets to Art Garfunkel. The Borgata web site had no info of this sale. I was able to call and get the tickets. The web site had wrong credit card info, so I wasn't able to process online. I love this app and I find it very helpful. This summer will be known as the summer of concerts because of this app!
Great!
by Blisstix on 2018/06/25 23:02
I am really greatful to have this app, anytime I am looking to go out for a concert I open it up and almost always find something interesting. I think they do pretty well for lesser known bands too. I like that sometimes they have the ticket prices available within the app, I would like to see that more often though. Through Facebook it has all my favorite bands listed, and I can track my top favorite bands. You can search bands, locations, and events. Even see the line up for the show. RSVP, and comment within the app to connect with other people going to that show. Thanks Bandsintown!
Hard to use, hijacks my device browser
by steve_2525 on 2019/08/20 15:35
I’m about to delete this app from my iOS devices. It takes over Safari whenever opened. It’s hard/impossible to navigate through, hard closing is the only way to get it off my screen- often without the info I hoped to get. It-and the developers-sem more interested in gathering my data than providing me with useful info. Today I got a message notification from a favorite artist- just the tease notification that there was a message, no indication of what it concerned (something that could have been easily put in the notification). I’ve done this dance before, but fell for it again: and Clicked Thru to the app. The app threw up a splash screen asking for more personal info from me. I couldn’t get past this screen to view the message without entering data sp I exited- as I’m about to do wit Bandsintown in general.
Loved this app

Once upon a time, this app was great for finding out about local concerts. Now, it’s full of bugs. The notification settings were never amazing. But suddenly, I couldn’t get the app to stop sending me useless notifications about artists supposedly messaging me (even from bands I don’t follow??) and it has almost stopped sending me concert reminders all together. I was getting at least 3-4 notifications a week that Mae had sent me a message. I don’t follow Mae, never listened to them, and the phantom messages never materialized when I opened the app. I tried adjusting notification setting several times without relief. So finally, I broke down, deleted the app, and reinstalled it. Now I can’t log in. At all. All I get is “server error, check your connection”. Get your act together Bandsintown.
Not impressed
by Pyropod on 2017/11/06 16:59
Hopeful, but first impression is NOT a good one. I have NO desire to give anyone access to my life (including my library) just to get tour dates. That's one reason I don't belong to any of the online library apps out there. My music library is huge and I don't feel the need to know the movements of every artist I listen to. That was complaint #1. #2 is their idea of selecting bands you might want to know about is to throw everyone up on screen in RANDOM ORDER. Seriously? You expect me to spend hours looking at every band/artist that ever put out a song, in random order? Ever heard of alphabetizing? How about a simple search field? You do realize that many of these artists don't tour at all, and many are actually dead! News flash: Simon and Garfunkel split up decades ago! So why should I have to sort through them to find what I actually want?
Great idea, a bit buggy
by Rach998 on 2017/08/13 12:21
App has so many bands connected. Push notifications are great. Kudos. However, the app doesn't refresh well when changing locations, following new bands. App needs to be restarted before it will pick up your changes. If you can handle these issues, you've got a wonderful tool in your pocket. New ideas for the team: Search radius expands beyond 150 miles (would like to have two large cities in my search scope, not just one). And allow specific date searches (say I'm going on a trip in 3 months and want to know who's playing in that town... I shouldn't have to scroll through the next 3 months to see the 1 week I want)
This solves a big problem
by mediawolf on 2019/11/16 08:44
My tastes are pretty specific. There are quite a few artists that I like in various a genres, but it’s pretty rare that any of them actually come to my town to play. That means when I look at the weekly local listings, there’s a terrible signal-to-noise ratio. It’s like sifting for gold. It’s way easier to just track the artists. And BandsInTown tracks everyone. (Cue Gary Oldman shouting “EVERYONE!!!!”) That means my FOMO is gone. If a band I like comes to town, I’ll know. Period. It’s a solved problem, a non-issue. It’s an added bonus that through the app I can ask the artists to come play here.
Great but the new update is really bad.
by Dante Berkely on 2019/11/15 18:04
Have been using Bandsintown for about 3 or 4 years, and it’s always been reliable and given me the earliest notifications for tour announcements and more. But with the newest update, every time I open the app it prompts me as if it’s my first time using the app, and all of my push notifications are never able to be viewed because it says I’m not following the artist who literally just sent me a notification. Not so impressed with the update, please fix it, I didn’t know that One of my favorite bands announced a spring tour in my city until the day after the announcement, when i scrolled past it on Twitter. Please fix the app I have loved and used it for so long. 5 stars before the update.
Seems great, but it’s flawed
by easplane on 2018/08/22 19:07
Been using this app for a while now without fault. Recently, however, I hear one of my favorite bands is coming to the area - which I’d been waiting eight long years for - and that tickets go on sale on 8/17 at 5:00 PM. I set two alarms, one the day before and one an hour before, so that I can’t possibly forget. I wake up the morning of the 17th and I find out immediately from a different source that tickets went on sale at 9:00 AM, and they sold out immediately. Bandsintown posted the WRONG TIME. Now, I have to consider getting scalped tickets (the lowest price on StubHub is 250% what it was originally going for) or waiting another eight years until they come to town again. Thanks for ruining one of the most exciting opportunities I’ve had in years, Bandsintown.
Eh
by Dilly_Mecc on 2019/03/08 03:29
Decent app for finding shows- the alerts of upcoming events have been handy. Some other features are just plain pointless, e.g. “messages from artists” - these are sent to you with notification saying “[xyz] artist messaged you” as if they are DMin you. When in reality it’s more akin to “an artist you track posted to their wall about [uninteresting news].” Worst part, hands down, is the user interface though. It’s pretty horrible, it just does not flow in anyway. No matter what you click, you feel like the app is actively working against you. Also, with the most recent update, I was logged out of my account and can’t seem to get back in. Had to start a new account with a different email.
Spams notifications
by a_big_dave on 2019/02/15 05:42
This app only needs to do one thing: tell me when the bands I follow are in town. I give it two stars because it does in fact do that. Unfortunately, in addition to its promised function, it constantly spams my notifications telling me I should follow more bands and that it has recommendations for bands and events I might like. None of these recommendations get even close to mark or seem to be based on a sane algorithm. They’re just spammy and lazy “use our app more please!” type of things, and they make it difficult to separate the actual notifications from the spam. And worst of all, the spam notifications are written in this over familiar, cloying manner (e.g. ❤️ you, we found some events you might like. 🤘 rock on!). You’re not my friend, you’re an app.
Can't recommend enough!
by AlmaLovesMusic on 2017/08/12 16:01
I have been using this app for at least a couple of years now. I recommend it to every music lover I know in every city I go to! I travel a lot for work and I'm always checking this app to see what shows are going on. I love how it has evolved to include date ranges. The mileage range is a huge plus, since I live in a small border town that doesn't get much action. This app lets me see who's on tour that I otherwise wouldn't have noticed, since most don't come to my city. It also allows me to plan for future travel, and dream a little (Rancid in Paris perhaps?)
Jumpstarted my live music life
by Absintheur on 2018/03/28 16:42
This is a kickass app, the most life-changing I’ve ever experienced. As a middle aged dad I’d written off concerts as overpriced hype and gotten out of he habit of going to live shows. This app changed that - it scans your music library and alerts you when bands you like (or might find out you like) are in your area. For me, it’s meant seeing scores of awesome shows in inexpensive (like $20 on average) intimate venues by indie bands I’ve been listening to (some new, some since the ‘90s) but had never seen before. What a joy it’s been to get back into the flow. Rock on with Bands in Town.
Helpful app
by jkloyup on 2018/11/05 01:38
This app will help you if your a metal head like me or if you just enjoy music and want to see your favorite musician or band you can track your favorite bands in mile radius or click track the UI is simple and not just 1,000 sub menus it tells you exact bands from every genre this app has helped me track my favorites down and also they give you websites to buy tickets from this app was recommended to me by heavy metal entertainment make sure you check those brits out they are quite witty and hilarious anyways 10/10 would stalk bands again
It’s A Total Assistant
by AmBrWvS on 2019/11/22 10:46
Bandsintown provides details and features I’ve not noticed in other apps. I’m able to get who and when, of course, but I’m able to see more than that on Bandsintown. It’s so great to view the seating at the venue. I enjoying listening to the artist’s music samples, or sending them a request to visit my town. The option to update my calendar is seamless - a favorite thing! Artists tours info, ticket purchases, sound bits, directions, and more are helpful uses for most audiences. I guess I could recommend an option to listen to an artist on their latest podcast interviews. I appreciate Bandsintown as is.
Life saver
by Jericho Powers on 2019/10/12 01:46
As a huge music lover and musician, this app changed the way I view concerts. I used to just stick with the bands I listened to most and tried to keep up with their tours, but since using this app, I’ve probably went to5 or 6 times the amount of concerts that I did before, directly due to the fact that I got advanced notices of when bands I like (or similar to what I like) we’re going to be in the area near me. Seriously, I don’t miss any shows anymore unless I have things I was already doing, or work. Can’t rate this app high enough.
Don’t even bother
by NICKNAME FOR GODS SAKE on 2018/08/04 21:37
This app shows you bands that aren’t even near you, I have gone to concerts in my state that this app didn’t even notify me of. Not to mention the fact that their customer service is non existent. I have emailed them several times asking for them to stop emailing me and I have turned all notifications off in the app and outside and reported the messages as spam, but since they are from different artist each time, I keep getting emails. SUPER annoyed and not going to use this app again. Edit: to the developer, no, I will not email you again asking for help because I have already emailed you and told you that I have already solved the problem all by myself, but you wouldn’t know that because you don’t check your emails do you. Thanks!! xx
Love it and recommend it!
by Lvlylisa on 2018/04/14 09:48
Think of this like Pandora for live music - it suggests band playing out that you’re likely to like based on your taste in music. And you can preview the band’s sound without leaving the app. If you travel, it will start to suggest shows as soon as you land. Only downside is the search function for a specific date and place if say, you know next month you’ll be in Boston, as you search a list and follow a band link, when you hit the back button you end up at the top of the original list.
Sanity Saver
by ZynniaOG on 2019/05/23 01:43
Concerts and live music are my happy place. And when I moved to the other side of the country I didn't know where all the good venues and distance alternative venues I could go to or if my favorite music artists even came to my area! My client showed me Bandsintown and I was blown away! I spent that whole night following artist after artists, RSVP'ing, and buying tickets. Needless to say, I'm never at a loss anymore and I'm always ahead of my concert game. My happy place is back and more alive than ever! Thanks for keeping me connected Bandsintown. You da bomb!
Very convenient
by Yo Mommas Block on 2018/02/20 08:59
Very useful app only problem is it doesn’t update me on some of the more underground artists. There’s been a few shows that are barely making the recommendation section and it lists the headliners who are artists I don’t really care for (don’t have any of their music on my phone whatsoever) but when I check the bill it’ll have openers who happen to be some of my favorite performers. Just makes me wonder how much gold I’ve skipped out on based off the fact that my preferred artists aren’t getting listed in the upcoming show section. Other then that it’s a great app.
Only one complaint
by AliNGustin11 on 2019/04/03 02:56
Bandsintown is an awesome app and does everything exceptionally well. The only thing i would say is that they could improve their notifications for refunds and cancelled shows. Me and my boyfriend bought tickets for a Bring Me the Horizon concert in February, and I went to check where the concert was on the app and it was gone. So i checked if it was still happening and it had been canceled. Bandsintown never notified me, sent me an email or anything, neither did ticketmaster (which is where bandsintown leads you to buy tickets.) I wouldn't have known and we would've showed up to a canceled show if I hadn't checked our tickets.
Couldn't complete my ticket purchase.
by Bella1502 on 2018/06/01 15:30
Tried purchasing two tickets for a show this morning and I got to the "complete your purchase" screen and there was nowhere to click or go to actually complete the purchase. I'm at work so I cannot purchase tickets on my computer and mobile is the only way. I sat there like a dummy just watching the 5 minute clock count down hoping something would refresh or change and it never did. I am so frustrated. Now, because of the glitch, I am unable to get decent seats without spending 4 times as much money, in just a matter of minutes! I can't believe this app has such a good rating. I will never use it again. Bandsintown will forever in my mind be the app that screwed me out of concert tickets.
It tells me when my favorite artists are in town
by AngelWithAShotgun666 on 2019/01/20 00:15
I live in Maryland. It’s a pretty small state with not that many big cities, which means there aren’t many concerts. There could be a few in DC and maybe one in Baltimore but that’s it. It’s hard to find concerts so this app really just keeps track of everything for me. I can put events as interested or going, I can see what’s nearby, even smaller artists. And I can see others who are selling tickets or can go cause I have no one to go with cause I have no friends.........
A must have for live music lovers
by luvinmusic71 on 2017/07/26 06:22
I've told countless people about this app. It's especially useful when you move to a new city and you don't know the venues. When I moved to Portland Oregon only the MODA Center used Ticket Master so all the other venues that were anything smaller than arena used other ticketing agencies. This app has EVERY show that I could see in Portland. I use it when I'm traveling to other cities and want to hit a live show as well. Scans all of my music and keeps tracks of every artists tour. Exactly what I want.
I don't care what the bands post/say/eat/photo
by i6ix on 2017/08/16 23:50
Omg let me turn that stuff off. I was able to mostly rid myself of the emails and push notifications but please understand something--- I DO NOT CARE WHAT THE BANDS POST--- most of the bands the you notify me about are far from my favorites. I don't want this feature at all! If I can't rid myself of it completely soon, I'll simply stop using this service. It's been good to have, but you've confused me for someone who is creepy obsessed with getting constant updates about people I don't know. I'm not that guy. We all live in notification hell and I will delete installs until my phone shuts up.
Game changing App for the music lover
by Fearlessnes on 2019/05/03 01:22
I'm a professional photographer and specialize in environmental portraits of musicians and characters. As I travel frequently all over the country, Bandsintown has become an indispensable tool. After years of shooting shows at large venues I'm always on the look out for more intimate performances. Bandsintown has kept me updated on small house parties and shows near me whenever the journey finds me. It's allowed me to set aside the industry and my work while on the road and to return to my roots as a music lover.
Wonderful application
by TallahasseeMan on 2017/08/08 17:42
This app is sooo useful that it is hard to describe! It gives me information on who is playing when and where that I have not been able to find anywhere else! The daily newspaper gets regularly smoked by the app. And because it scans your music it presents opportunities to see great bands that are loved by me! It is the best at what it does!! PSin previous post I forgot to hit the stars to show my appreciation of this app. 5 stars is what I wanted to say last time. I got it right this time!
What happened?
by Meggie 80 on 2019/01/08 05:10
I used to love this app. a lot more because it showed all concerts in a specified area in the bubble view. In the past year, however, there was some kind of update and it will no longer show all bands and instead only shows a subset related to bands I check off as liking. This is a pain. Please allow a view of all bands in town without having to sift through and check off all bands I’ve ever liked. While doing so may enhance the recommendations I don’t have time or interest in that. I just want to monitor the app. for all future concerts so I can see who is coming and make plans. Thank you.
Less than the sum of its parts
by madtho on 2019/01/13 15:21
Everything that should make this service awesome is here, I just never feel like I’m finding what I want, or I have to sift through tons of stuff to see what I’m interested in and frankly I just lose interest. Recommendations rarely work for me on any service, and it’s no different here. Some of the artists I like can be lumped into categories with lots of crap, but I guess that’s the way of the world. Maybe I’m missing these things, but… - I’d like to follow some venues, instead of just a radius. I don’t need to know about every bar band in the city, some preferred venues reliably book artists I want to see. - if there’s a way to tune notifications I can’t figure it out. If I RSVP or ‘maybe’ a show, I should get a reminder that it’s coming, then maybe I’ll remember to go. Right now I get a ‘how was the show?’ notification. I don’t know how it was, I didn’t go because I forgot it existed. Hope this is helpful, I think they’re on the right track. Hopefully it improves.
I would have given zero stars if I could
by raree reviewer on 2018/07/18 21:27
This app told me that one of my favorite bands was playing a headline show at MSG. So naturally I spent a lot of money on tickets for the show. Today, the day before the show, I find out that the band I was hoping to see is only opening for another artist. I found this out from another source (NOT BANDSINTOWN). I then found out that my band was not playing tomorrow night at all because the drummer got injured. I also found this out from another source. The Bandsintown app did not alert me of any of these changes or details. So now I am stuck going to a concert tomorrow to see two artists that I do not like and it is too late to sell or return my tickets. I am triggered. Thanks for reading. NOT YOU BANDSINTOWN!
Some improvements could be made
by worldtraveler05 on 2018/07/10 14:56
I love the idea of this service. There are a few really annoying things though about it. One, I’m really tired of getting the “blah blah artist sent you a message” notifications. No, they didn’t send me a message. Their team posted something on the site. I don’t want those. I wish it was easy to turn that stuff off. I wish it was easier to get rid of artists you don’t necessarily want to follow just because they’re suggested because of another artist I may be following. I want the option to opt out of that. Just wish in general it was a little easier to use and such.
Radius is too limited!!
by JamesTexas on 2017/12/01 16:24
I live in Texas and have friends all across the State. Traveling to see shows with my friends is a great excuse to connect. I’d like to see where my favorites are playing within a slightly larger area. I’d say 600 miles should cover most of it. Well, if I set my location near the center. Otherwise, let us setup more than 4 locations! I would love to setup a radius for Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Lubbock, Corpus Christi & Amarillo to cover some of Texas. Then, move on to add Phoenix, Albuquerque, OKC, KC, NOLA, Birmingham, etc. Thanks for considering additions for those who don’t lead a sedentary life. 🙂
Approved 👍🏻👍🏻
by ToobSockGuy on 2018/03/24 17:21
Love this app, occasionally you might have to search for bands that might be playing in your area. But nevertheless the shows pop up quick, very informative. Not to mention it will introduce similar artists you may know/ find out about right there, so boom a bigger playlist new music. l Getting tickets for the shows is easy access, and quick. Matching you with great prices. I love this app a lot, I keep up with shows like crazy because it’ll notify me weeks even a month or so before the shows. Recommend this app 100%
Great app to find local stuff
by Mr Gimbles on 2018/03/29 01:06
One time I was stranded on an island , for decades I had to survive on beets , salt water , and the bark of a palm tree I had to cut down for survival spears (spears made for survival). I contemplated giving up and jumping off the very tall three foot cliffs that would certainly ruin my knees.... In the long run. Then suddenly from the blackness of night a boat appeared on the horizon ... I yelled "PLEASE IM HERE HELP ME" They yelled back " yes, we hear you. Use proper punctuation...idiot. I ran down to the shore where i had originally landed all those years ago. Out of that boat walked .... Oh hello can I help you? Yes, writing a story you , you seemed to have barged in here ..... What's that?... You wanted to know what I thought of an app ?... I already said it's a great app to find local stuff ... What more do you need ????? You've ruined everything. Now I have to tell my story somewhere else .
Pretty great
by YeahYeahBros09 on 2018/04/08 21:39
It’s really good. It lets you leave messages to the band/group and request that they “play your town”. You can buy tickets directly from the app. It has many different features and does exactly what it says in the description. There’s only one function that I think would make the experience better, and that would be possibly having a link to the set lists if they’ve been released yet, if the band is on tour that is. Other than that, it’s fantastic.
Didn’t miss the reunion
by bowchap on 2018/02/14 14:50
I love the band Jump Little Children, but they stopped performing together several years ago....I’d say about 10 years. Every so often, I’d check their website to see if a reunion of some sort was going to take place. Fortunately, I was also tracking them through Bands in Town. I received an email alerting me about their new tour and have since received another email about another weekend they played. I always check the app for concerts now. Love it!
Terrible app!
by Musicloverlp on 2017/12/18 20:43
This app sent me to the wrong artist! Her picture was there on my notification! Masha coming to Phoenix Dec 17,2017. I was so excited I was going to see my favorite singer. I missed my Christmas Party , drove over 50 miles, fought with my boyfriend all day because he had to work late so I thought I was going to miss her perform. We get there and it’s a DJ named Masha. I showed the venue the notification I had received and they were so apologetic as I had bought pre-sale tickets which they promptly refunded.... but they couldn’t bring Masha. This is not something that should happen. You affected so much in my life because you cross referenced a pic you found in your data and slapped it on the wrong Masha! Clean up your act or get out of the business!
Best app
by Dearjfree on 2018/02/03 21:23
If you're looking for something to do spur of the moment in a new town or your own, this app is perfect. I used this app in Seattle, WA to find upcoming shows in Austin, TX to buy tickets for a loved one's birthday. I've seen way more shows I actually want to see because it's an organized way to find them! I do wish the algorithm could pick up on the weird mix of my genre taste better and then recommend nightly shows based upon that - instead of having to pick a genre!
Great Concert Finder
by Kaniatris on 2019/01/19 09:19
This is a great app for finding concerts! I love searching through it for my favorite bands! I wish you could block artists from showing up in the searches so that it would just show bands I want to see and I wish that you could set the search radius father away than just 150 miles (I’ve drove way farther to see a band at a certain location. And even though they were closer, it was not on a day I was off work) Other than that... It’s awesome!
MUSIC JUNKIE MUST HAVE
by Ozzy Osboner on 2019/09/27 19:32
Never write a review for anything. But I’ve had this app for a few years now and never had a problem with it. Love the fact you can set a distance for how far you’re be willing to travel for a show. Also the list of artists performing day to day even if you don’t know them. Found out about a lot of stuff I didn’t know was going on because of this app. It just all around user friendly in my book. 👍👍 two left thumbs up.
