Here is a list of 5 free websites to find events online. These website list different events happening around your place that you can attend and enjoy.
It often happens that we miss out on a lot of events/festivals being organized at nearby places simply because we have no idea about them; we have free time, the tickets fit our budget, the event excites us, but heck, we just don’t know about them until it’s too late and a friend comes over to tell how much they enjoyed. Well, to make sure that we do not miss out on too many of such exciting events, a lot of websites and mobile applications have come up that inform us about such events in advance. They list events across different genres, place and time. I have listed 5 such websites for you below in this article.
The 5 websites to find events online are last.fm, festivals.com, ticketmaster, ticketsnow, and FestivalNet.
The first website to find events online is last.fm. The website provides you with a list of different musical events according to the selected date and location. The option to select date and location are available right on top. You can also read a small description regarding the event and find other important particulars attached to it. There is also a search bar that lets you search for a particular event or festival that you are interested in. The interface of the website is pretty simple and there are two different tabs to look into: Events and Festivals. Lastly, the website not only allows the users to look out for new events but, you can also go there to list your own upcoming events.
The second website to find events online is festivals.com. The name of the platform clearly showcases the width and vibrancy of the events that the website aims to bring to its users. You can swivel through genres like arts, sports, food, heritage etc and find events that you are interested in. Once you have chosen a genre of your choice, the website will show all the upcoming events in a neatly compiled list.
The setup of the website is pretty simple. On the left hand side you can enter particulars like date, location, time, or choose from different categories, and on the right hand side you can view all the events based on your choices. The option to list your own event for free is also available on top. Check it out from above link.
The third website reviewed here to find events online is ticketmaster. This platform doubles up to serve both as a place to search popular events & as a place to book tickets for these events. Generally, an event finder website provides its users with information as to where they can book their tickets for listed events, but ticketmaster is different in that sense. A good-looking user-friendly interface lets you find your favorite events quickly and then book your tickets from the same platform. The events listed range across streams like music, sports, theater, family events. You can also search through different international locations as the website has data in its store for countries like USA, Canada, UK, Mexico, and many more.
ticketsnow is another platform where you can find events that suit your interest and book your tickets simultaneously. The two major differences between this platform and ticketmaster are: first, ticketsnow is more limited in the sense that it provides very few categories of events; sports, music and theater are the only three categories for which tickets are available. A couple of more categories can be added to increase the user base. Secondly, the website is only limited to people living in different parts of United States and no other international locations are included. Nevertheless, if you fit within the available options, and I am sure a lot many do, then there is nothing to worry about. Check it out from above.
The final website to find events online reviewed here is FestivalsNet.com. Although a little archaic in its interface, this is a good platform to find various events mainly focusing on art & craft, children, family. On the home page, you will find both the options to find and event, or list your own event. You can choose to find events by location, distance, or genre. The website claims to list over 26,000 events including events like home & garden events, musical event, art & craft events, and more. While you are searching for the events, there are broad categories like events with & without music, juried events to choose from. It covers events for all the states in US and there are also separate state pages for all these states; these pages list popular events taking place in a particular region of the country. Lastly, there is also an option to submit your email to receive reminders and newsletters from the website. Check it out from above.
These are the 5 suitable options that provide you with a large list of events to attend. They include not only a large range of events but also cover a wide time period so that you can plan your schedule well in time. Also, all these websites have user-friendly layout so it is easy to go through all the information without much fuss. Check them out and let us know what you think about them.
