Ents24 launches new GigAlert app

By | Published on Wednesday 21 October 2015


Online entertainment guide and ticketing hub Ents24 has launched a new iPhone app called GigAlert which, it says, “allows you to carry the UK’s biggest gig guide in your pocket, track artists, venues and events and get access to tickets and presales”.

The new app will carry details over 100,000 shows taking place in the UK, covering music, comedy, theatre and clubbing. The firm says that it will add around 10,000 new events each week and that priority access to tickets will be available to thousands of gigs and shows.

Commenting on the new app, which is one of a number of new products launched by Ents24 as it celebrates its fifteenth birthday, the firm’s Head of Music Marketing, Adam Brooks, told CMU: “GigAlert is perhaps the most significant of this year’s anniversary developments”.

He added: “We were keen to ensure that common frustrations with live entertainment and gig-related apps were solved pre-launch: so GigAlert works on and offline, with or without logging in, and whilst it integrates with a user’s iTunes and Spotify libraries, it leaves the decision of which artists to track to the user rather than tracking legions of artists automatically”.
