Concert discovery app Bandsintown Concerts received a major update today, introducing native Apple Music integration to allow Apple Music subscribers to listen to music without needing to leave the Bandsintown app.
For those unfamiliar with Bandsintown, it’s a website and app that’s designed to allow users to discover when their favorite bands are performing live in their local area.
When you search for a performer in the Bandsintown app, or look for nearby concerts, you can now select an artist and listen to their catalogue of music to decide whether or not to purchase tickets to an event.
Bandsintown says the new feature is designed to help fans discover more artists, attend more shows, and help artists grow their fanbases.
Bandsintown managing partner Fabrice Sergent said the company is “thrilled” to offer fans access to Apple Music. “Promoting artist discovery is very important to us, and Apple Music subscribers can now browse and listen to an artist’s catalog without having to switch between apps.”
In addition to introducing Apple Music support, the new update to the Bandsintown iOS app also adds tools to make it easier for customers who do not currently subscribe to Apple Music to sign up for an account.
Though native Apple Music integration is new to the Bandsintown Concert app, it has previously worked with Spotify and Soundcloud.
Apple Music integration is available in the latest version of the Bandsintown Concerts app, which can be downloaded from the App Store for free.
