Check it out: ENCORE Concert App

Lollapalooza, Osheaga, The Grove…
So maybe you weren’t able to make it to these music festivals but are wondering how they were…
Or maybe you did and you’re left wishing you took some pictures or videos?
Maybe you’re wondering if the cutie you met there is going to the same show next week?
They are?! …Better buy a ticket.

Using the NEW “Encore” app you can do all of this and more!

ENCORE, a Next 36-backed* startup, is a concert listings app designed around the memories created at live music shows. It creates timecapsules for every concert and festival you’ve attended by aggregating the photos and videos shot by attendees.  Based on your location, Encore provides listings of upcoming music events and which of your friends have purchased tickets. With Encore, you can share your best concert moments, buy tickets for shows, and relive your concert experiences.

The mobile app builds time capsules from the photos and videos taken by crowds at music events. Content is pulled from across social media sites including Instagram, Flickr and YouTube. Users can add concerts they have attended to their Encore profile to relive them later. The app can even find photos and videos from festivals back in the 60s.

“In the past, people kept ticket stubs as a memento of shows they attended,” said Michael Warshafsky, co-founder and head of product for Encore. “With Encore we’re trying to build a digital equivalent of the ticket stub.”

The app includes listings of upcoming local shows in every major city across Canada and the US. Users can buy tickets and easily get their friends together for an event.

“Notice the sea of screens at concerts? Live music events are the number one usage occasion of smartphones, and yet there is no go-to concert app,” said Nicholas Klimchuk, the business lead on the team. “We’re trying to change that with Encore. ”

 Key highlights of the new Encore app include:

– Time capsules of crowd sourced photos and videos of concerts going all they way back to the 60s

– Comprehensive and accurate list of local concerts in every major city in North America

– Time capsules of crowd sourced photos and videos of concerts going all they way back to the 60s

– Comprehensive and accurate list of local concerts in every major city in North America

– Profile to keep a user’s concert event history

– Webviewer to share time capsules to Facebook profiles and with friends who attended
