Stay in the Know with Festival & Event Apps

By / Food / July 1st, 2014 / 1

Summer is here – the season of festivals and shows. Keeping track of where and when to see said shows can be difficult without a few choice apps to help you stay in the know.

All Events in City

Android, iPhone, Online

An all encompassing, global app, this gives access to festivals, events, shows and more right at your fingertips. Events are sorted into categories, such as Upcoming, Business, Music and Sports. Over 10 million events are listed on the site (and app), spanning 20,000 cities. You can explore by category, date/time and nearby city. They have a social side too – Meet Ups are events held by clubs, bars and cafes focusing on a single shared passion, like a soccer game. And if you sign in through Facebook, you can create events of your own, invite friends and more.


Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Phone, Online

A fan-to-fan marketplace owned by eBay, StubHub draws on their years of experience connecting ticket-owners to ticket-needers. The app allows you to view schedules and listings for events and shows across Canada, the US and the UK. Each listing shows number of tickets available and a full seating chart. Once you’ve added an event to your calendar in the app, you can check the map for bars, restaurants and hotels in the area. It is also a popular way to sell tickets you can no longer use.

Your Local Event Company


Every city or region has their own personal event source. Two big ones (at least in Eastern Canada) are Ticketmaster (Android, iPhone) – listings include BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec; and Eventko (iPhone) – which covers Quebec, Atlantic Canada and Vermont. Visit your favourite ticket service’s website to find their mobile app.
