If you've ever run into Tucker Gumber on the dusty trail into your favorite festival, there's no doubt you were met by a warm smile, and a quick tip or two about the weekend-long event into which you were about to plunge. Don't be surprised, the guy did write the book on throwing festivals. Known as The Festival Guy, Gumber has made it his life's mission to improve the music festival experience from top to bottom, and today his vision came into focus just a little clearer.
FestEvo has launched its #FestivalBetter app, which puts festival info in the hands and pockets of its users. Available now on the Apple Store and Google Play, the mobile technology puts artist info, songs, lineups, workshop schedules, and key pieces of information in an easy-to-use GUI fans can cruise easily without getting bogged down with unnecessary distractions. Find your friends, build a rideshare, or learn about an artist you've never heard about in a couple of clicks. It's easy to use, and it's useful for the festie newbie, or the jaded vet (like me).
In order to get the word out about the app, FestEvo is giving fans an opportunity to win a pair of tickets from amongst eight festivals, including Shaky Beats, SnowGlobe, and The Untz Festival. As you can imagine, entering the contest involves downloading the ad-free app, so it's a win-win. Get entered to win a pair of tickets, and put a powerful festival experience into your trusty phone.
“We are stoked to announce this exciting giveaway, and grateful to be working with such awesome event partners,” stated Tucker Gumber, “we are working hard to become ‘the’ trusted resource for artist and event discovery, selection, festival preparation, the journey to the venue - and the ultimate in-event adventure.”
Head over to festevo.com for the full scoop, and start to #FestivalBetter. The Festival Guy's got your back.
