Apple will use its data cross-referenced between Apple Maps and Apple Music to provide concert fans with more information. With new concert discovery features, fans and artists will have more ways to connect.
In Apple Maps, users now have more than 40 new Guides, which will be curated by Apple Music’s expert editors. These will show you the best places to experience live music in major cultural hubs.
From seeing a classical symphony in Vienna to a techno club in Brooklyn or Tokyo, these selections are available first in 10 select cities. Users will also be able to see upcoming concerts on Maps, in an integration that comes from Shazam and its integration with the Bandsintown app.
In Apple Music, users now have the Set Lists space. These will show the main tours, and there users will be able to read about the productions and know the setlists in advance. Users will be able to see which concerts are in their area through the app. Something similar to what Spotify has had for some time.
Functionality is now available in 13 cities
When is this feature available? It’s from this Tuesday. But unfortunately, for now, only in 13 selected cities, and none of them are in Portugal. But the functionality is expected to expand to more locations over time.
Music Venues is currently available in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York and San Francisco in North America. In Europe, functionality arrives first in Berlin, London, Paris and Vienna. In the Asia and Pacific region, it reaches Tokyo, Melbourne and Sydney. Mexico City is the first in Latin America.
