Citymaps Helps Connect Fans To Local Live Music

Optimized for on-the-go mobile use, Citymaps gives
users the ability to explore over 80 million points of
to see what is going on around them at any
given time. Utilizing Songkick’s database of over 3 million
concerts, Citymaps now offers users a “live music map”. 

“We are really excited that this partnership enables music fans
to discover more local live shows” says Songkick’s CEO
Ian Hogarth.
“We’re excited to team up with Citymaps
to give artists and venues more ways to reach fans and provide
Citymaps’ users with more information about concerts happening
around them.”

The interactive map displays what’s going on
; while being peppered with the things you, as
a user, want to specifically see. The experience humanizes
planning in a way that makes live music events easy to discover
and attend instead of leaning on the “let’s just bail because
there is nothing to do” response that is all too common.

Events on the Map
“Our partnership with Songkick
has created an additional layer of customized content for users
on Citymaps,” says Elliot Cohen, Co-Founder of
. “We want to be able to go beyond
providing destinations for people,
now with our latest partnership we are able to
offer experiences.”

How Does It Work?

–         Users
can tap the Events filter and view venues that offer events,
either on that day or in the near future.

–         Venues
that have an upcoming event appear with a special event icon on
the map pin (just as venues that offer a deal appear with a
special deal icon)
