Music fans have a new way to find out about live music in Manitoba.
Premier Greg Selinger officially launched Manitoba Music's new concert-finding app Manitoba Live on March 4 at the West End Cultural Centre at a news conference hosted by Ace Burpee of 103.1 Virgin Radio. Manitoba Live, powered by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries, is a free iOS app that helps music fans find concerts in venues and clubs in Winnipeg and throughout the entire province. The app features the most up-to-date concert and festival listings in Manitoba, brought to you by the Manitoba Music team.
With Manitoba Live, users can instantly find live music events by venue and by date, see which shows are happening nearby, discover new bands and venues, see artist lineups, get more info on hundreds of local artists, connect via Twitter and Facebook, share the hottest shows with friends, and add events to their calendar so they never miss a show.
Developed by Winnipeg digital media firm Visual Lizard, Manitoba Live is fuelled by Manitoba Music’s popular listings portal, the Live Music Calendar (LMC), which attracts thousands of visitors every month. Manitoba Music has spent a decade building the listings infrastructure and database, as well as a connection with venues and artists, to help music fans find the live music they want. Manitoba Live takes this a step further, putting the power in the pockets of music fans across the province.
