"The most thorough of all the music apps I've used." -- NPR Music

BandMate recommends live music events based on what you listen to. Find out when your favorite band is playing and, better yet, when your next favorite band is playing!

BandMate also let's you know when the bands you'll like have upcoming releases, so you can keep your music collection fresh!

BandMate uses the artists already on your device to suggest other bands you might like as well. It then searches through event listings in the city of your choice to create a personalized calendar of the shows that you'd want to see and the new albums you'll want to check out.

Each item even includes a score letting you know how strong the recommendation is.

And if you don't have the time to scan through listings, just pop on your earphones and Bandmate will generate a playlist for all your artists with upcoming shows in your town.
