 About the hack
There are three sides to this hack.
- From a consumer point of view: In large cities with many club nights going on it is very hard to find a suitable night for a specific taste in music. Perhaps tonight you want to go to a venue that has a high chance of playing a specific band or artist.
- From a venue point of view: If potential customers know exactly the type of music you are likely to play, and that music matches their music taste, it should increase foot fall.
- From the point of view of rights management: Knowing exactly what songs are played at a specific venue help you to accurately divide any fees to the relevant parties.
As there are three sides to the hack it would make sense to provide a solution for each scenario.
- A web app to get recommendations about local venues based on an artist or band.
- A Spotify app to help venues to auto submit their playlists
- An iPhone app to get attendees to help submit the tracks being played at a specific venue. This in turn will help the venue, therefore the venue may decide to reward the clientele who help in this process. The iPhone app includes similar functionality to that of Shazam to aid the process of track submission.
