Summer brings with it the peak season of music festivals. And every year the technology makes it easier for attendees to these shows, with simple applications to install on the mobile phone that inform at any time when the next festival will be, where friends are during a concert and how far Left the car. There are even apps that provide the ability to create events and invite friends or identify the song that is currently ringing. The following text lists five applications to enjoy – even more – the summer festivals.
There are many people, especially young people, who attend these events where they can see their favorite groups, regardless of their preferred musical genre. But the times have changed and nothing has to do with the festivals of now with those of yesteryear or, at least, the resources that are available today. And is that thanks to technology is possible to get much more out of these shows.
Applications not only allow you to listen to free music. If you plan to attend one or several festivals this summer, you should be prepared. In Spain, the offer is very varied in terms of musical styles. The most rockers can enjoy Mad Cool (Madrid) with groups like Green Day or Foo Fighters. Those who prefer coastal concerts have in Burriana (Castellón) the Arenal Sound with artists like Iván Ferreiro or the band Bastille. But there are many others: the Cruïlla in Barcelona, the BBK Live in Bilbao, the Low Festival in Benidorm …
If it is already clear what the festivals are most interesting, attention must also be paid to the possibilities that technology offers to improve this experience, since there are many apps designed for the most festival.
The offer of this type of musical events is more and more varied. However, the location, dates or poster of each is not always known. With the Festivales application you can access the list of shows from both Spain and Portugal, as well as very detailed information about each one.
2. Find my friends
One of the most common problems of this type of event is to lose among the crowd to the group of people with whom it has come. The Find my friends app is able to identify the exact location of the companions, which will make it much easier to locate them.
3. Buddy Festival
At other times, what it costs to find is not the group of friends, but the car or the accommodation. With Buddy’s GPS technology you can mark important points such as the parking place, toilets or the location of the tent, for example.
4. Bandsintown Concerts
The mobile application for iOS and Android Bandsintown Concerts is perfect for fans, but also for artists and bands. It allows you to create events, send push messages to followers or locate photos and videos of concerts.
There is no better feeling at a festival than listening to good songs for the first time. For those times when it is difficult to identify the theme or its title is unknown, Shazam is the most appropriate option, as it reveals the song that is playing.
