  • Best App-! Apr 3, 2019

    By JazzJake86
    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-!

    I used this app quite frequently pre pandemic. I kept up with the band scene quite well. Will use when things get back to somewhat normal.

    Have had this app for years now. Never had any problems with it and love getting updated about who's playing and where... Hopefully there'll be more notifications coming through later this year eh ☺
  • It’s good for getting tickets to go to the concert Dec 20, 2019

    By Roselyn :)
    It’s good for when you are looking for a concert to go to and it gives you places/hotels you can stay in, what I have noticed is that many artist play @ the forum. This app also gives you options for example if you are interested in going you can press “interested” button and if you are for sure going you can press the “going” button there is also a “ticket” button to look at the available seats there are. It gives different seating options for many different prices. For example I am interested in going to the Niall Horan concert at the Forum and it gave me the date, time and place. I could also recommend that artist to do a concert where I want for example: Los Angeles. It depends where you live because it will give you concerts near you. Your truly, a person that uses this app :)

    Craziest most awesome app I love that it tells you where or when this band is on tour for the ones you want to see live
  • Used to be better Jan 21, 2019

    By Dolly Barker
    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 Sep 28, 2018

    By JustLetMeSubmitMyDangReview
    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 👍🏼

  • Hard to use, hijacks my device browser Aug 20, 2019

    By steve_2525
    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.

    Terrible App. I've used it in the past and got so irritated I removed it. After reinstalling I try and sign in with my email and it keeps refreshing the 'resend confirmation link' and I never get an email to confirm it. Checked junk folder and nothing there either. So I can't even use the app. I guess there is a reason I got rid of it before. I intended to sign up for some live stream concerts but that idea is out the window.

  • Loved this app Oct 16, 2018

    By hedededede
    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.

  • Amazing app. 💗🙌🏼 Nov 2, 2019

    By bunni317
    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 Mar 6, 2019

    By Dancin Forever
    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. Jul 25, 2018

    By SdKuAb
    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.

  • Great but the new update is really bad. Nov 15, 2019

    By Dante Berkely
    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.

  • Eh Mar 8, 2019

    By Dilly_Mecc
    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.

  • Only one complaint Apr 3, 2019

    By AliNGustin11
    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.

  • What happened? Jan 8, 2019

    By Meggie 80
    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.

  • Seems great, but it’s flawed Aug 22, 2018

    By easplane
    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.

    App constantly makes you keep logging back in and then they added notifications for streaming virtual events. Now I get so many notifications that it is hard to find actual in-person events (not that I'd attend them during the pandemic). I've had to turn off all notifications and uninstalled the app for now. Maybe if they update it so you can select to only be notified for events and not streaming I'll try it again. Or I might just wait until post Pandemic.

  • Not impressed Nov 6, 2017

    By Pyropod
    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?

  • Make sure to double check the Artists when buying tickets! Mar 6, 2020

    By Kds198
    I received 2 alerts and an email stating that Banks was playing at a concert venue in San Francisco. I clicked the link and saw the picture of Banks and the venue name and date as stated in the email. I purchased tickets and then got a receipt and tickets sent to me for BLanks. Completely different person, not even close. The venue has a no refund policy and when I wrote to Bands in Town they directed me to their terms of service which basically says, too bad, we are not liable. So basically now I bought tickets to some random guy by following the links from bands in town and now I’m SOL. Not sure how an algorithm screws up by a full letter and no one at the company is running checks to match the actual events. Really expensive mistake for me using their platform.
