If you’ve ever been devastated to discover your favourite band is playing and the only tickets left are in the hands of ticket touts, you’ll love Songkick Concerts. The app enables you to track all your favourite concerts and festivals – and will tell you as soon as there’s a ticket announcement.
It not only informs you where the gig is and when it’s taking place, but what the available options are, so you can decide in advance if you want to be standing, seated or go VIP. You can then set a reminder so you’re first in the queue when the tickets go on sale.
Songkick is being used by more than 15 million people worldwide, and its listings are global. It won’t blast you with irrelevant notifications, though: if the band you love is playing Pittsburgh, but you can’t travel far beyond Prestatyn, it won’t bother telling you about such far-flung gigs.
What it can do, though, is automatically connect the likes of Apple Music and other services to find your favourites automatically, so you don’t have to enter them all into the app. It’s a brilliant way to ensure that you’re always in the know about your favourite musicians.
