Music fans have a new way to find out about live music in Manitoba!
Manitoba Live, powered by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries, is a new 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, launched last week by the Manitoba Music team. The app gained immediate attention from media and music fans alike, with the #mblive hashtag trending on Twitter.
To celebrate the launch, Manitoba Music has teamed up with 103.1 Virgin Radio for a contest for live music fans, who can enter to win exciting prize packages every week until the end of April, including concert tickets for some of the hottest local venues and much more. Fans can enter now to win exciting prize packages via manitobalive.ca, including concert tickets for Fefe Dobson and The Neighbourhood, exclusive opportunities to meet superstars like Phillip Phillips, hockey tickets, JUNOfest tickets, and more. Stay tuned to 103.1 Virgin Radio and follow #mblive in coming days and weeks for more info on more fun events and prizes.
"There is so much personality in Winnipeg's live music scene, from the acts themselves to the rooms they're playing in," says Colin Lougheed, 103.1 Virgin Radio's program director. "It's great to be able to partner with passionate people like Manitoba Music on the Manitoba Live iOS app, who do such a great job of showcasing this."
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 Live is part of the celebration of the Year of Music in Manitoba, which shines a spotlight the many exciting music events taking place in the province in 2014. Manitoba Live is available for free download now in Apple’s App Store, just in time for The 2014 JUNO Awards and the many fantastic JUNO Week events happening throughout Winnipeg.
