Concerts can be complicated nowadays. First, a person would need to follow all their favorite artists social media as to not miss out on show announcements. Secondly, if a person wants to go to a concert with friends, they will have to coordinate the planning of the group’s event. Thirdly, that person would then wait in the queue or pay high prices for resold tickets that might not be authentic. Finally, who would want to go through all that hassle only to be unable to find a parking spot come the day of the concert, causing the group to be late and miss part of the show?

Concerts are a lot of fun and can even open a person’s eyes to a lot of great music, but many do not attend because concerts are not as accessible to them as they could be. With these three apps, going to concerts has never been easier!

From there, users can add the event to a calendar or set reminders to make sure they never miss ticket sales or event dates. Users can even purchase tickets for shows through the app, further streamlining the concert planning process by having all the user’s information in one place.
