MacFriends, a Lafayette-based company, has announced the release of FestiGoGo, an application for Apple's ubiquitous iPhone now available at the iTunes App Store.
FestiGoGo provides a comprehensive list of music festivals - from obscure jazz or bluegrass festivals to mega events like Bonaroo - and allows users to get up-to-date information on music festivals by interfacing with festival organizers. FestiGoGo is a free download and in-app purchases - access to a festival's content - are .99 cents. Users of FestiGoGo are alerted when a festival releases its schedule, allowing the users to download the festival's schedule and detailed performer information. The app also allows users to create a personalized festival schedule. Users can also fish for festivals by searching for events by date, location, genre or performer.
MacFriends co-founder Ben Hampton says in a press release the company plans to build close relationships with festival organizers to ensure accuracy: "A key to FestiGoGo's success depends largely on how well the app is received by festival organizers."
