If you like your music and you like your music live, then rejoice as the second largest live music website in the world makes its way onto Android, bringing with it a cacophony of concerts and a googolplex of gigs…
Smug Apple obsessives have been benefitting from the myriad musical marvel that is Songkick for some time now, leaving us more adventurous Android users to get our gig information the old fashioned way. But, finally, the app that brings the artists to you is here to ensure we never miss out again.
Simplicity itself to use, once you download, Songkick scans your music library, Google Music account, or Last.fm app and then creates a personalised concert calendar based on your favoured sonorous stylings and your location. From that point onwards any local gigs from bands matching your music profile will be flagged up for you.
More than just a calendar, though, for every concert you can view line-ups, venue info, maps, compare the best ticket price offers, invite friends along, search for gigs anywhere in the world and pull up full tour schedules. See, much more.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Second only to Ticketmaster in terms of scale, Songkick is an excellent essential for any live music enthusiast. Making the whole process of finding events and booking tickets not only a breeze but also a social experience too, it’s the only gig guide you’ll ever need – over six million monthly users can’t be wrong!
