New: Easily integrate your Bandsintown tour dates into your website

For musicians and music fans alike, Bandsintown is a must-have app. Downloaded more than 16 million times, it’s the largest concert discovery app in the world, and through personalized notifications and a full Facebook integration, they connect artists to fans. Which is why we’re so excited to announce that we’ve partnered with them to build a new feature to make your gigging lives easier!

Now in just a couple of clicks, you can pull your tour dates from Bandsintown and display them on any page of your Bandzoogle website. No need to re-enter dates, or embed widgets or plug-ins. The Bandsintown feature displays your events, styled to automatically match your website’s theme, and is responsive on mobile devices.

How it works

To add your Bandsintown events to any page on your site:

  • Click Add feature

  • Under External, Click Bandsintown

  • Enter your Bandsintown account name

  • Click Save

And you’re done! Your events will automatically appear in the feature. Now anytime you enter dates into Bandsintown, they will display on your website.

Display Options

Like with our Events feature, the Bandsintown feature can display your events as a List, Calendar, or Table. You can change the display anytime without affecting your event listings. All displays are responsive, they adapt to your layouts, and to mobile devices.

Looks great but have we lost the ability for folk to share individual dates on social networks?

Preston Reed: The Bandsintown widget doesn't have the same social sharing options as our Events feature, so it's not included in the integration. I'll pass along your comments, maybe it can be added in a future update.

You can already do that from your website. Click on the event you want to share. Click "invite friends" under the event and share it to FB etc.

Thank you David. That doesn't seem to be an option when using the Bandsintown system Grayling.

Hi Dave/Bandzoogle, This is great. Is there a way to make sure the photo that was posted on our Bandsintown profile for the event also shows on our Bandzoogle page?

Jackie Gage: At the moment the integration doesn't import the images, but I'll pass along that feedback and maybe it can be added in a future update. Thanks!

Jackie Gage: No decision made yet on any additional work on the integration as there's a long list of other development projects/new features on the way, but we'll let you know once we have news.

Is there a way to post Bandsintown upcoming shows for a venue location (not as an artist or fan)? We are a live music venue and could use this feature, if it's available.

@The Legionnaire Saloon - The Bandsintown feature works by syncing your Bandsintown events to our Bandsintown feature. If you have a Bandsintown account you would simply enter your Bandsintown account name in and it will update on your page with us. I'd recommend checking it out in your Pages tab by clicking Add feature, then Bandsintown to see how it works. If you get stuck, please email us from the HELP tab and we'll assist further. Thanks!

i just added a date to Bandzoogle (have added the feature on our website page) and it doesn't seem to automatically populate on the website.....is that something you have to do manually or does it take a bit? I added one prior, but had to log in to bandzoogle site to sync it so that it would show on our site?
