BBC integrates Songkick live music finder

The BBC has added the ability to find where your favourite artist is next playing live, courtesy of Songkick.

Every music artist that has ever played on a BBC programme – and that’s a whole lot of artists – gets their own artist page over on the BBC Music hub. It’s already a pretty comprehensive music guide as it is.

Now, however, it’s gone to a whole new level. Songkick, a website that produces personalised news about music events, has announced that the BBC is incorporating it into the BBC Music website.

“From today, Songkick will be powering the new artist pages with upcoming concert and event listings,” reads a recent Songkick blog post.

This will provide information on live music tour dates regardless of the size of the act, from established pop giants right down to small indie acts just starting out.

Search for an artist on the BBC Music hub page, and you’ll now receive a smart summary of recorded performances for the Beeb, links to those performances, an artist biog, and – of course – their next live appearance.

Click on the Events tab and you’ll get a complete list of upcoming live shows. Clicking on those individual event listings will jump you to the appropriate Songkick page, where you can buy tickets.

All in all, it makes the BBC Music web page into one of the most comprehensive music resources on the web.
