FIND YOUR MUSIC: Manitoba Music Launches Android App, Adds New Features to MB Live Concert-Finding App

Posted on

Finding live music in Manitoba just got easier.

Manitoba Music is ready to launch the new Android build of MB Live, its free app that helps music fans find concerts at venues and clubs in Winnipeg and throughout the entire province, powered by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries. Featuring the most comprehensive and up-to-date live music listings, the Android app builds on the success of Manitoba Music’s iOS app, which was launched in 2014 to celebrate the Year of Music in Manitoba.

With MB Live, users can instantly find live music events by venue and by date, see which shows are happening nearby, discover new bands and venues, get more info on hundreds of local artists, connect via Twitter and Facebook, share the shows with friends, and add events to their calendars so they never miss a show.

The new version of MB Live for both Android and iOS comes with upgrades to enhance user experience, including the ability to keep track of events with the new Favourites function and search by artist, location, genre, keyword, or category. Users will now be able to see all of a venue’s upcoming events and featured local artist profiles now include streaming audio and video, and upcoming performances.

“Manitoba is known for its fantastic live music scene,” said Manitoba Music’s executive director, Sean McManus. “As soon as we launched MB Live for iOS, Android users started asking for an app. We’re excited to build on MB Live’s success and to offer even more music fans a free and easy way to find their music. We are grateful to have supportive funders in Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries and FACTOR, as well as our dedicated development partners, Visual Lizard.”

To celebrate the launch, Manitoba Music has teamed up with 103.1 Virgin Radio and 99.9 BOB FM for a contest for live music fans, who can enter to win exciting prize packages, including concert tickets for some of the hottest local venues and much more, via manitobalive.ca. Fans can stay tuned to 103.1 Virgin Radio and 99.9 BOB FM and follow #mblive in coming days for more.
