This brings back some epic concert memories!

Do you have an all-time favorite gig?

SXSW is almost upon us and we can’t wait to step into the Southern sunshine and p.a.r.t.y!

With all the crazy festivities in Austin, it’s sometimes a challenge to keep up with all the gigs, venues and artists to watch and so we thought we’d help SXSW newbies and Music aficionados alike with our Musical Guide to SXSW

Our fun Foursquare list will guide you to some of our favorite go-to places in Austin! Check it out here. Don’t have Foursquare yet? Get started at

What’s more, there’s an awesome SxSpotify Foursquare badge up for grabs for those out and about. There are three ways to get kitted with our exclusive badge:

What’s a badge without some cool goodies? The first 20 people every day  to show their badges at the Spotify House will get their hands on some custom Spotify and AIAIAI headphones. On Wednesday 3/13, those 20 lucky badge-holders will also get entry to our massive Spotify Live show - just present your badge to us at the Spotify House to get on the VIP list. 

Looking forward to see y’all at SXSW! 

Never miss a show by your favorite band or artist again! Bandsintown, the free concert recommendation and notification application, has just released a Spotify app to streamline your concert calendar. The app links your personal tastes with tour dates in your city while also delivering songs and playlists built around your favorite acts currently on tour.

Some great features of the app:

  • Recommends similar artists currently on tour based on your music taste and listening trends,
  • Create a playlist featuring songs from your favorite and Bandsintown-recommended artists playing in your area soon,
  • Enables you to view a pop-up tab listing any Spotify artist’s tour dates, with local shows highlighted, simply by clicking and dragging the artist into the Bandsintown Spotify app.

You can also purchase tickets directly through the app, indicate whether you are attending events, receive email alerts on concerts in your area, access a personalized upcoming concert calendar page that allows you to hear an artist’s most popular songs, and much more!
