FestiGoGo launched in December 2010, just in time to promote festivals for the 2011 music festival season. One of the first festivals to be included in FestiGoGo is Charleston’s own Lowcountry Blues Bash. MacFriends’ CEO, Richard Sarver, stated that he recognizes the Lowcountry Blues Bash as a virtual Mecca for blues artists and fans in the Southeast. Sarver went on to say, “We placed a high priority on making sure that Lowcountry Blues Bash is in FestiGoGo because we want everyone across the country to know that great music festivals are not exclusive to the West Coast.” For more information about FestiGoGo, please go to http://www.festigogo.com.
The Lowcountry Blues Bash is a twelve-day event at more than 25 venues which host more than 50 artists. This festival is a major operation that takes a great deal of planning and preparation. The makers of FestiGoGo see it as their mission to let everyone in the country know about the Lowcountry Blues Bash, as well as every other music festival across the United States. “It is our hope that FestiGoGo will spark an interest in music festivals in general, and help promote all music festivals,” added Sarver.
FestiGoGo can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store. FestiGoGo displays festival descriptions, festival dates, festival locations, and festival lineups, all at no cost. Users have an option to purchase certain festivals for only $0.99 from within the app as an in-app purchase. With a festival in-app purchase, users get that festival’s complete schedule, detailed artist information, and the ability to create their own personal festival schedule. The fact that the Lowcountry Blues Bash takes place at multiple venues, with performances occurring simultaneously, makes FestiGoGo even more useful for Lowcountry Blues Bash fans. More information about the Lowcountry Blues Bash can be found at http://www.bluesbash.com.
