“Hey, when are you going to have a feature for listing my shows/concerts? I love Bandcamp but until I can post my gigs here, I still need to refer fans to [other site that shall remain nameless] (which I don’t like) or [another site that will also remain nameless] (which I hate). Love, Heidi”
The future, Heidi, is NOW:
But never fear, Bandcamp has not suddenly become Yet-Another-Place-to-Enter-Your-Shows! That’s already a big enough problem for bands, and we had no interest in making it any worse. Instead, we partnered with a site called Songkick that collects shows data from tons of ticket vendors and venues throughout the world, and then provides that data to us (as well as YouTube, HypeMachine, Yahoo, and many others). The result is that your upcoming shows just appear without you having to do a thing. And if Songkick happens to be missing a show (they might not catch every living room gig, for example), you can simply add it yourself, since their whole site is set up as a user-editable wiki.
That’s it, your upcoming shows with none of the typical hassle. Visit your Profile page to learn more.
P.S. Songkick’s announcement is here.
