    I use BandsinTown for just about every music event possible. It gives me the ability to see where a specific artist is touring and when they will play near me. Bandsintown is perfect for finding a festival that will fit your music taste.

    Going to see indie bands live is an experience like no other. You can make sure you never miss an upcoming concert for your favorite artists by securing tickets 3 months ahead. Or you can also discover brand new bands that are in your area for the weekend.

    Bandsintown Concerts has a list of various music Concerts and shows near you. It lists over 100 shows for Broadway musical lovers to attend. It also has reviews of people with similar interests who've attended previous shows.

    Meeting people in a city of fewer than 15,000 people isn't exactly easy, but Bandsintown makes it a little better. Nothing brings people together like similar music interests. Bandsintown alerts you to all nearby concerts, so you can make new friends at local concerts.

    COVID has created a significant drop in the number of festivals this year. Only about 20% of them are actually happening. If you want to know if you're fave is on, you can use Bandsintown Concerts. Works for band gigs too.

    So far nearly every band that I have requested a show in my area has come into town in concert. I can keep track of all of the shows in my area and find something to do any weekend. The app doesn't take up a lot of space and it's easy to use.
  • 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 :)

    This app is totally indispensable for concertgoers. I've almost never missed a show because of it and I recommend it to friends whenever they say "I didn't know they were coming to town!" One suggestion: add a feature to keep a band out of your recommendations. (C'mon, do you guys REALLY think I listen to Tool?!?)

    Great App to see and keep track of all the shows locally and when I travel. It has become a heavily used app for this music lover without a lot of issues. Always purchase concert tickets from an official store/website but use this to add reminders to your calendar or share events to others for more the merrier. It does a good job of picking up small and large shows alike.
  • 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.

  • Keeps me in “the Loop” Jul 16, 2021

    By Dr.RaeRae
    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

    Keep track of your favorite bands or any music artists see when they're playing live near you. For all the times I've missed out on bands I've wanted to see this app won't let that happen again Also gives you updates on the latest blogs if your following music artists pages. Bandsintown has been pretty helpful and useful for me
  • Hands down, then up for high fives, best app Aug 31, 2019

    By John bygone
    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!!!
  • 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.

    When you view whats happening, it shows up to 4 shows, when you select "view all" everything vanishes. Very annoying.

    Cannot choose to only follow one band. The app makes you follow at least 5 even if you only want to follow one or two.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • Spams notifications Feb 15, 2019

    By a_big_dave
    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.

  • 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.
  • Wish I could track multiple cities Apr 4, 2020

    By Traveler 3689
    Wish I could switch between cities a little easier—like I do with my weather app. I travel to different cities and countries and would like notifications of when my favorite artists are going to be in, say, Vegas or LA or Chicago. Even though I don’t live in those cities, I might like to plan a trip around my favorite artists. Too often I am taking a look at a favorite artist and notice that they were performing in a completely different region and I could have attended. Don’t have enough time to go through each artist’s concert dates for all the cities I am interested in. Addressing this would make a great app even better!
  • Oct 10, 2021

    By Allyson Norton
    It's great so far just wish I could set it to see all of The U.S because that's the country I live in rather than just having it in a 150 mile radius of me because my mom is really to travel to take me if it's a city her friend lives in. Anyone know how to set it for farther away then just that radius? Also I got this app to track Olivia Rodrigo mainly. Want: Country wide veiw
  • Great idea, a bit buggy Aug 13, 2017

    By Rach998
    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)
  • Very convenient Feb 20, 2018

    By Yo Mommas Block
    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.
  • Love it but one suggestion Sep 22, 2021

    By lalalisaaaa<3
    I love Bandsintown..it’s the best way to see who’s playing and where and has the links to the tickets which is awesome! I also love that it alerts you when a band/artist you may like will be playing near you. The only thing is sometimes I want to see if anyone will be playing in an area I’ll be traveling to, but it’s too far out so there are no results at the time. It would be stellar if you could save the dates/location you searched and Bandsintowntown could notify you when something does come up. 🤩
  • Radius is too limited!! Dec 1, 2017

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

    By Ashton Lippel
    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

    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.

    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 don't care what the bands post/say/eat/photo Aug 16, 2017

    By i6ix
    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.
  • 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.
  • Some improvements could be made Jul 10, 2018

    By worldtraveler05
    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.
  • Great information, wayyyy too many alerts Feb 22, 2020

    By Seriouslywiththenicknames?
    Having the app turns me on to shows I wouldn’t have heard about, but the amount of alerts I get is astounding. Like, if someone is playing multiple dates at one venue, I will get an alert for each individual show, sometimes 10 in succession (not kidding). Crazy and unnecessary. Even though I have my Apple Music account linked, I feel like I get alerts for bands I know I haven’t listened to. Not sure how to make it better, because I still like getting alerts for the bands I like.
  • 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 👍🏼
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spams notifications Feb 15, 2019

    By a_big_dave
    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.
  • Mediocre Feb 15, 2020

    By Eheheheheheheheheheheheheh
    I really don’t know what the point of this App is. There’s no value added by using this versus looking your bands tour dates up on an app that will actually let you purchase the ticket like Eventbrite. Their notifications are also more like constant spam than anything: they have this weird feature where you can “track an artist” and the artist even sends you messages! Except all of the “so and so just sent you a message 🔥” messages are just advertisements for their tour/album that the artist likely never wrote. My final complaint is constantly having to resign in, this app makes me sign in and verify my email every single time I open it. Would not recommend.
  • Very buggy Aug 20, 2019

    By Pamalama S
    I was excited to use this app since I just moved to a new state and I’m trying to discover the good music venues and what bands are coming through. I like the idea of this app a lot, but I’m trying to add bands manually (no way I’m giving another app access to my libraries) and half the time it doesn’t add the bands I click on. And sometimes I’ll click on “interested” when looking at a show, and it’s like the app is doing nothing. It’s like the buttons are for show and it’s not actually processing anything. Very frustrating. Everything’s up to date on my phone, so it’s not on my end...
  • Bring back the cloud! Nov 10, 2021

    By hfhgfhydt
    Been using this app for years to find the best shows coming up, but recently it has never been harder to find out which shows are slated to come to town. The cloud option was taken away to be able to see all the artists that have shows coming up and now you can only see what is coming up on the artist page or what is coming up really soon. You can’t just see all the artists laid out, click on them to see what dates they are coming and where they will be. Please bring the cloud feature back!
  • Can’t save more than four locations? Oct 19, 2017

    By Goddamnithanna
    Thanks so much guys for fixing the date searching problem! But now I seem to only be able to save four locations. I used to be able to save 10 or more. Once again, very unhelpful for the person who travels for shows. Please address. Fixed!*****When searching you used to be able to select specific dates but apparently now you can only search up until the following week? When you live somewhere that is 3-7 hours away from places that actually get shows, this is very unhelpful. Am I just missing it or is it gone for good?*
  • 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.

    When you view whats happening, it shows up to 4 shows, when you select "view all" everything vanishes. Very annoying.

    Cannot choose to only follow one band. The app makes you follow at least 5 even if you only want to follow one or two.
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • Hard to get started Jun 14, 2021

    By APierceArch
    This app is garbage to get started on. I just wanted to know the price of a ticket at a small show at a small venue in a small town. I had to use the app to do that. So, I download the app, thinking I’ll now be able to see this show and what it costs. First it made me select ‘artists that I like’ before I could proceed and presented me with an unsearchable list of hundreds of artists, the first hundred of which I don’t like or don’t know. I picked some random ones (dumb, not useful). Then I had to confirm my email, which I did repeatedly but the app does not recognize this. I cannot proceed from here, which makes it unlikely I will go to this show (whatever the price is..., I still don’t know), which ultimately hurts the small band I was thinking of seeing.
  • Don’t even bother Aug 4, 2018

    By NICKNAME FOR GODS SAKE
    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
  • WORTHLESS!!! Apr 15, 2021

    By MiaNj
    This has to be one of the worst apps I’ve ever used. I deleted it once, then thought I’d give it another try. Nope. Just as bad. You cannot get past entering profile information, even to check on the simplest content about content. If you DO get past the profile garbage, and maybe find the link to get to concert info, it never takes you where you think you’re going. It either crashes, or you get error messages like “there’s nothing here.’ If you are lucky enough to make it past all this junk and manage to get tix to an online event ... there’s NEVER ANY WAY TO ACTUALLY ATTEND OR VIEW THE EVENT. this is a total waste. It’s nothing more than a phishing scheme to get your preference info, so they can sell it to third parties.
  • Couldn't complete my ticket purchase. Jun 1, 2018

    By Bella1502
    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.
  • App does not complete basic set up Jul 13, 2021

    By JH82198
    On iPhone SE running 14.6 the app is basically unusable. Sending, resending multiple times, verification emails and clicking them repeatedly does not work. Eventually after multiple tries it might resolve (race condition issue probably in app), and then the basic set up does not complete when it repeatedly asks you to allow notifications it won’t proceed until you allow notifications. Add to that they use targeted cookies and market your private information to third parties, this is an app that I will only use on a computer from now on. Too insecure with personal data, app is way too crappy, app demands to let them send you push notifications (no thanks) byeeeeeee
